Actually, in countries with strict environmental regulation, these engine oils are also recycled, purified and reprocessed. Just that not sure about the standard of such operations in malaysia.

After warranty,I've been using Tesco semi syn on my wife's Myvi. 13th year & the Myvi is the most reliable workhorse amongst the 3 cars I have.

I don't see any problem in using Petronas semi syn.

That's true, Tesso will not sell fake oil. But my question is towards recycled oil.

There is a difference between recycled and fake! If properly processed,it may be satisfactory for use. With SUH being less than 50% retail price, it may well be industry approved recycled oil.

I do not have the experties to say either way. Thats why I asked. If it is recycled ,then customer has the right to know!
