At Autobarn in Australia, 30 April to 12 May 2019

Valvoline Engine Armour 15W40 semi-sththetic
It's API SN/CF and ACEA A3/B4
70% Off, $13 for 5L (save $34)
BTW I've seen the same oil at Bunnings Hardware for the same price.

Penrite HPR 10 (10W-50) Full Synthetic
It's API SN/C, ACEA A3/B4, BMW LL-01, MB 229.3, VW 502/505
With TBN = 10.0, KV100 = 18-6 cSt, Zinc = 1080 ppm, SA = 1.21%

Wesfil-Cooper Oil filters only $5 each. Common sizes: Z154, Z386, Z411, Z418, Z436, Z79 and Z9.
That's better than half price. I use these filters a lot, and often buy a few at this sale.

Somehow I have access to Penrite Enviro, i am wondering if anyone tried the 5w20 or 0w20 before and whether their durability comparable with Castrol Edge or Mobil 1?

Hey Mate,
I've used a lot of Penrite oil, but always the high-SAPS thicker stuff, never the low/mid-SAPS thinner stuff. But Penrite make a good oil and I'm sure it's a fine product.

The "best" Penrite oil is their 10-Tenths series that is 100% PAO and Ester (Group IV and V). Most of their other full synthetics are Group III, but the Enviro+ series is made with varying amounts of Group III and Group IV (PAO), according this document <Penrite Enviro+ PDF>

Traditionally Penrite oils have been thick with a heavy add pack, so high-SAPS (SA%) with high TBN and high ZDDP (zinc). It's what the Aussie driver wanted back in the day, when driving old school V8's through the outback (Think Mad Max the original).

Now modern cars require thin oil for fuel economy, with low/mid-SAPS to protect the DPF or exhaust catalyst. So Penrite made the Enviro+ series to meet this modern demand.

I'm sure the Enviro+ oils are good, but so too would be equivalent products like Mobil 1, Castrol Edge, Valvoline SynPower and Shell Helix Ultra. I would just buy a name brand synthetic that meets your spec and offers the best price.

For me Shell Helix Ultra and the full synthetic Castrol Magnatec are often the best priced oils that carry the specs I need. If you get Penrite at a good price, then buy it, otherwise M1 or Edge would do me fine. I should add that M1 is known to use decent amounts of PAO in many of their products, and SHU uses the excellent GTL base. All good choices.

It's 25% off all Castrol engine oil.

BTW last weekend they also had 40% off wiper blades, so I changed my old rubber for new. Windscreen wipers seem to cost a lot more now days with their new designs. Glad to get 40% off, and they needed changing.

Castrol Magnatec 10W40, semi-synthetic
API SN/CF and ACEA A3/B4
KV100 = 14.5 cSt, SA = 1.2%,FP = 203C CCS (- 25C) = 6100 cP

The higher CCS for the lower KV100 makes me prefer the 10W30 Magnatec over the 10W40, both are SN & A3/B3/B4 oils.

Castrol FP via D93, Nulon via D92
