On paper and in UOAs/VOAs, it doesn't really impress me over the other off-the-shelf synthetics. It also doesn't go on sale and isn't widely available.

The Eneos is moderately interesting, but still not worth it at the prices they charge here in the US.

It depends on the grade. They are generally shear stable oils particularly the top of the line Sustina oils.
I like their Sustina 0W-20 but don't know if it's worth the premium price over TGMO or MGMO 0W-20.
Their 0W-50 is really a 0W-40 and I don't think it's worthe the premium price over M1 0W-40.
The Sustina 5W-30 is impressive but is it worth the price? I suppose it depends on what you're using it in. Check out the following UOA:

I think it's way over priced and would never use it for that reason.

Have they changed formulation too since 2010?

In what grade?
How long do you plan on running it?
Eneos Sustina 0W-20 seems worth the bucks it would cost if you'd run it long enough.
If you plan on 5K drains, go to Walmart and pick up a jug of PP, QSUD or Synpower 0W-20.

Give it a shot. Both are decent oils. Maybe order a few cases so the shipping isn't astronomical. Some brick and mortar stores are carrying it now, supposedly.

0W-20 is spec'd for your car so that's the grade to use with a mineral 5W-30 mentioned as an alternative, presumably if a 0W-20 isn't available.
Nissan does have there own brand of 0W-20 and we know nothing about it or who makes it for them. I don't know what it costs but if I owned a Nissan for which the 0W-20 grade was spec'd I'd be very curious to know at least something about it. Is it a high VI oil like Toyota and Mazda, what are the AW additive levels like, that sort of thing.

If you owned a Nissan or Infiniti in Canada, CATERHAM, all you'd have to know is that Mobil products (Mobil Super series and Mobil 1 series) are the service fill, aside from the ester nonsense. smile

The dealers themselves are known for constantly for putting 5w-30 in the i4 instead of 0w-20.

I think theirs is made by Valvoline. I have heard this a few times.

I mean Pennsoil makes it. Thats why if you got a oil change at a Nissan dealership you can get a Pennz rebate. It seems that Nissan holds a patent on "Nissan Ester Oil" so at least some of their cars get Group V oil. Probably specifically made by Pennzoil for them.

Except that it's really not an ester based oil. wink

How do you know what their custom oil is made out of?

The chances of them making a special ester oil to a Nissan design/recipe is about the same as...well let's say...and additive company giving Mobil their secret proprietary additive to make an oil for Toyota...or companies throwing away GTL basestocks...
