Is Castrol Motor Oil better than Kendall? Let's find out!

  • Published on: 20 May 2019
  • Castrol vs Kendall and Quaker State vs Valvoline competing for the final two positions in the Elite 8 oil series showdown. I am not sponsored by Castrol, Kendall, Quaker State, Valvoline or any other manufacturer. I purchased all of the products tested. 100% of Project Farm videos are ideas that come from those leaving comments. So, thank you very much for requesting this video! In the previous episodes, Amsoil won over Royal Purple, Amazon won over Liqui Moli, and Red Line won over Super Tech, Pennzoil over Lucas, and Penrite over Motul. The brands that won will advance to next round in the oil championship series.

    The testing methods outlined in this video are my own and not performed using expensive oil lab testing equipment or following the ASTM, SAE or API testing standards. The three tests outlined in the video include tests for viscosity at varying temperatures, film strength, and evaporative testing. In my opinion, the testing approaches used in this video provide consumers with valuable information on choosing the right motor oil for their specific application. Hope you enjoy the video and thank you very much for supporting the channel by watching the commercials and through Patreon support.

    Looks like Quaker state actually one the evap loss and the flow if you look at the oil colors at the end of evap test turtle shell shuffle follow the Quaker state. Quaker state was the lightest colored oil at all stages

    After you put oil in your volumetric flask, how do you wash it out for reuse? It should take some time to get it clean and dry.

    Castrol magnatec is the least expensive full synthetic in their line up and from what I’ve heard pretty good. I’m curious to see how it compares to amazon and Walmart full synthetics since they’re similar price points,

    Castro’s edge is good oil but I use Pennzoil Platinum in just about everything. In my lawn equipment I use Pennzoil Platinum 10-W30 and in my auto I use Pennzoil 0-W20, which is what Honda uses when they change my oil. I use fully synthetic in everything, including my two cycle stuff which gets Stihl Ultra. Availability has a lot to do with my choice, as well as experience.

    Also the oils should pour DIRECTLY into the center of each track for accurate testing of flow rate.

    6:35 I take issue here. If both lost the same amount of weight (material). That is a tie. Scar length is actually a measure of the density or hardness of the test material and not wear protection. At this margin of error you should call it a tie or repeat it until you can show a statistical trend in data. I love your channel. Not being critical. Just offering my opinion.

    I use castrol edge 0w-20 in my Honda and it definitely makes my engine run much quieter and in my opinion more efficiently. Castrol oil is the way to go in my opinion

    Have you ever tested Castrol's past marketing of being "attracted" to heat (the hottest engine components) verses other brands that Castrol claims are repelled by heat? I would be interested in your person testing and how you test. Thanks!

    I sort of weigh the evaporation test high because evaporation increases sludge and may not hold as much byproducts from fuel combustion. And the flow test was in practice equal. So I would have put Castrol ahead of Kendall. But it is like splitting hairs they both tested good.
