The Repco 0W40 in my shed is Penrite, I've got the data sheet around somewhere...but it's old.

Last I heard Penrite made the oil for Repco.

But all Repco say is "All our oils are blended by one of Australia’s leading oil and lubricant manufacturers."

I just did a search on the REPCO MSDS database, all their Repco oils e.g. R1030SN for their 10W30, show to be made by Penrite. The date is 2012, but I assume it's their up to date data sheet.

Yeah I noticed the special on at Repco online about an hour ago. I'm a bit partial to the Nulon oil in the boat ATM.

I don't really know what the specs are on the Nulon gear but they seem to be happy to publish their friction tests on some of their semi and Syn oils.
Any Aussie's on here VOA tested it? (Nulon 15W40 Prem mineral?)

Any "quantified" opinions on it? or Nulon oils in general? at 55% off I going to grab a few: keeps running costs down (and I can't help myself grin).

cheers

Yeah $15 is so cheap it's hard to pass up.

I also received an email saying SCA are having 50% off all Valvoline this weekend only. Some good syn power oils there for potentially $30 range.
