I had some work done on my Hyundai as the oil pan had a pin hole leak from rust , its a project to change it unless you have a lift , so I had my friends shop change oil pans for me ,

He refilled it with Dura MAx Synthetic ,, so far it has been good motor is quiet as a church mouse with 284 K on it and i just was looking to see if anyone out here uses it or has any info on it as it looks like it's reladyne product and you would have to be a jobber to purchase it

Yes, Duramax is Reladyne's house brand. I'm sure it's a fine oil, I've dealt with Reladyne a bit and they seem like a decent organization.

With this being said, if I had the option between Duramax and a name brand oil, I'd go name brand.
