if want to save your money & same time protect your engine, just buy the tesco offered engine oil, shell helix 5W-40. best bang for money at rm89 - 99.
can safely used until 10k km per duration. I have extend it up to 15k km also ok.

Bought this Nissan engine oil from a spare parts dealer recently. Quite cheap at RM125 for Fully Synthetic oil 5W30.

Saw from the bottle, it was manufactured by Shell Thailand.

Sorry, I've thrown the bottle away after changing the oil. The back label did mentioned that the oil is blended by Shell and is imported by Tan Chong Motors Malaysia from Thailand.

I got the below info from Lazada.

Gasoline Oil - SN 5W30 Fully Synthetic x 4L
Imported by Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd
Manufactured by The Shell Company of Thailand Ltd
Distributed by Tan Chong & Sons Motor Company
Good Quality
100 % Genuine Product

Judging from the pricing, very likely this engine oil is using the highly refined Group III base oil instead Group IV (PAO) oil.

What I read is articles had been saying that highly refined Group III base oil are now comparable to Group IV oil.

That is why even Group III oil can be classified as fully synthetic. If you ask me, I will buy the rm125 fully oil as it is cheaper.

Different viscosity already and most likely blended by another oil producer.

Like Honda, different viscosity are blended by another manufacturer. It is either Idemitsu or JX Nippon oil.

I was looking for cheap oil for my Saga FLX in Lazada. Stumbled upon Rektol 10w40 fully for 63.88. It was on sale from prev price 220.

There's also Kaito Japan oil for 58.00.

Currently been using Formula Shell 10w40 also on sale prev for 59.00 for last 2 oil change.

Reason for change, just want to try some new oil to see the difference.

Anyone had tried this oil before?
