Is Amsoil better than Penrite? Let's find out!

  • Published on: 08 June 2019
  • Final 4 oil showdown. Amsoil Signature Series 5W-30 100% synthetic motor oil competes against Penrite Vantage and Schaeffer's Supreme 9000 competes against Pennzoil Ultra Platinum full synthetic motor oil for the final 2 oil championship positions. Other brands already tested in the oil playoffs include: Mobil 1 Royal Purple, Amazon Basics, Quaker State, Lucas, Super Tech, Liqui Moly, Red Line, Kendall, Castrol, Valvoline, and Motul.


    Oil Testing Playlist:

    I purchased all of the oils tested and am not sponsored by any of the brands tested, nor do I sell any of the products tested. 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 rest of the video and thank you very much for supporting the channel by watching the commercials and through Patreon support.

    Your videos are awesome! The y are definitely helping me figure out what oil I should be using. Hope you test the wear additive Turbo Maxx someday.

    Also Pentrie vantage is not the same as penrite 5W/30 GF-5 oils, totaly different additives, Vantage is to suit the older engines and not two stroke or even 4 stroke engines, you really need to real world test on a 4, 6 , 8 and even 12 cylinder engines? a 1 cylinder lawn mower engine is just not going to cut it full stop?

    Penrite will win, try Mobile 0W /20 and see what happens, but keep in mind these oils even 5W/30 GF-5 oils are new generation oils, compared to the older oils which were semi synthetic, basically mineral base oils and then friction modifiers were added, but due to emissions, the oil companies went that extra step forwards and developed extreme long life oils and very good in keeping aluminum blocks and extreme tolerances even other alloys very clean and also only if you use good quality oils like Penrite and other brands which are approved by Oe Car manufacturers will your engine Transmission and coolants and also gear oil last the distance and keep you car running perfectly?

    Wow!, what an incredible video. So well thought out and executed, better than commercial work. In NZ we dont get Amsoil but we do get Fuchs and Penrite. It would be interesting to see how Fuchs performs as a major oil supplier

    an interesting test would be to add in one more competitor, that would be mixing all four together in equal amounts and see how it turns out. I currently have in our 2016 KIA Soul (153,000 miles) a mixture of 5W 20 Mobile 1 Synthetic (20,000), 5W 20 Pennzoil Synthetic High Millage and STP High Mileage Oil Treatment. I only put in 1/4 of a bottle of the STP High Mileage Oil Treatment each oil change.

    What's clear is that both Amsoil and Pennzoil are very good synthetic oils. I'm using Penn now and the idle smoothed out so much, can't tell car is running. Great vids. I think Amsoil will be champion, but Penn Ultra is hot competition. Good oils.

    Would love to see one of penrite better oils tested. The vantage is literally the cheapest synthetic oil they sell.

    You should test the different tiers of amsoil against each other. They have the OE line, XL line and the Signature Series. I've always wondered what the difference between them was and if the extra money is worth it.

    You better watch your back.. You've removed the marketing hype and told the truth using hard science. Whatever you do, don't review any politicians. They'll end you for sure.

    Awesome video! I'd love to see a comparison of wet clutch/motorcycle oils. Is Yamalube better than Amsoil? Keep up the great work!

    Aside from Amsoil there's another oil company that produces 100% synthetic oil, named Mitasu.

    I can just imagine how bad it smells when you are doing the hot plate test on the oil EVAP. NOSE PLUG!!!

    Ya gotta give it to the Aussies they know how to manufacture such a quality oil such as Penrite.

    I'd be really curious to see Shell Rotella T6 tested. It's definitely an oil that a lot of turbo car enthusiasts use for its HTHS, good TBN, and the fact that its $20 a gallon!

    Previous test for pennzoil, I think you used pennzoil platinum, not ultra platinum.
