Read comments on Shopee's Tesco Shell Helix Ultra.

Those who gave 1-2 stars mentioned that there were no oil seal, only cap.

Is this normal for SHU sold at Tesco & Giant?

Yes it's normal. That seal is only for Malaysia Shell, not European Shell sold in Giant/Tesco. So all are still genuine Shell oils.

300v is slightly over the limit for zinc but other racing oils can be a lot higher still , hence generally racing oils not really recommended eventhough you could probably get away with it for some like the 300v. For me the 300v cost is the deal breaker.

Perodua 5W30 is a semi synthetic oil. so 7k-8k km is ok to change. but for me, I rather upgrade it to fully synthetic, can go to 12k-13k km per change on my car.

I used to believe mineral oil could last for 5,000km, semi synthetic 7,000km and fully synthetic 10,000km, until I came across this blog:

https://www.mekanika.com.my/kalau-guna-miny...km-atau-5000km/

It all depends on your car manufactured date and manual.

In my opinion, engine oil graded SN and SN Plus could go for 10,000km, regardless whether it is fully syn, semi syn or mineral.

Fully synthetic is the one started with 0W right?

But I read article saying fully synthetic is for new car and my car is 9yo

I have the same thinking too

Used to bring my car to SC for oil change due to warranty and seeing the engine oil draining out still very clear made me think was it really time to change

Felt so wasted the engine oil

Motul 300v can still get at 80/ltr? I saw mostly over 100/ltr. Amsoil SS I got at 67-70/ltr, Dominator at 80/ltr.

It does looks like made in Malaysia product. Packed to look like made in Japan. Even the number printed is Malaysia number 03-xxxxx without even international code. LOL

Anyway, if it's good, I don't mind cause better than using branded but fake. Ya ya..I know can get direct from petrol station or supermarket confirm ori. I just am in the phase of testing out oils to compare it with ori Shell, Petronas and so on.

Think from good side, MADE in Japan FOR Malaysia market so no need international dialing code biggrin.gif

BTW is oil filter A MUST to get ORI one, for example Myvi must get Perodua ORI?

Last time a workshop said his customer all he use "OEM" for them...

6UEST, Quazacolt,

The assurance of the originality of Shell Helix Ultra 5w-40 only for those from Europe and sold at Giant/ Tesco?

How about SHU from Hong Kong?

One spare part shop that I frequented, told me to be careful when buying Shell engine oil from Shopee.

Then promoted SHU from Hong Kong😁

Found similar product in Shopee, with comparable prices.
