Thank you for the detail, iam looking for thin oil on 20 weight that hopefully as robust as M1 EP. In here the Shell Helix Ultra still cost more than Pennzoil Ultra Platinum for the same 0w 20 and seems SHU slightly thicker even though with lower VI

Shell Helix Ultra is very good oil, I would always be happy to use it.

We don’t get Pennzoil Platinum or Pennzoil Ultra Platinum in Australia.

Both the SHU and PP / PUP should be GTL based which is good. Slightly thicker SHU sounds fine to me. I like thicker.

We have a new Shell Helix Ultra 5W-30 in Australia
It’s rated API SN-Plus, ACEA A3/B4, BMW LL-01, MB 229.5 / 226.5 and Renault RN 0700 / 0710.
It’s made in Hong Kong

Looking back at a year of posts, that is the best price I have ever seen for that oil. It’s worth picking up at that price.

Nulon Long Life 5W30 Full Synthetic
API SN, ILSAC GF-5, Chrysler MS-6395, Dexos1-Gen2
KV100 = 10.66 cSt, TBN = 8.5 , SA = 0.9 %,


Good for the Holden drivers out there, and most Japanese & Jeep brands too. Shame about what is happening to the Holden brand in Australia.
