    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.

    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.

    Does the amsoil signature with 0w-20 evaporate more ?

    It would be interesting if you could do a test on the Penrite "Extra Ten" oils. If I remember right it's a 5W-40 that claims to be just like 5W-30 when cold (which is obvious since they are both 5W) but more viscous when hot (which is also obvious because one is a 30 and the other one is a 40) or some other nonsense, but then what's the real difference between the "Extra Ten" 5W-40 and regular 5W-40 or 5W-30?

    I was thinking... Wouldn't it be more logical to go off of volume, being that you fill your oil based on volume, and not weight? I don't know if it would really make any significant difference in the testing, since doing an even weight makes the math easier.I can see volume based testing make more sense regarding the wear tests, due to potential contamination rates. I guess a more logical way to verify the potential issue would be to weigh the oil based on a known volume, to make sure there's no significant difference in the density.

    Great video as always. Really appreciate the information. Can you do a grease comparison. High/low speed, contact with water, load..... thanks

    Thanks Todd. When you pour the cold oils to see which one flows the fastest, are you actually seeing which oil has broken down the most, after being cooked, rather than seeing which oil retains its lubricity the best? I'm asking this because that could explain why one of the cooked oils flowed faster than the same oil when fresh.

    HelloThe test is not correct.You compare the cheap product from Penrite to hydrocracking with the product from Amsoil at PAO. It is not right.You need to take the appropriate product at PJSC from Penrite Racing 5W-30Redo the test with the appropriate product from Penrite.Otherwise it is a deception of subscribers

    Is it just me, or is it REALLY weird when the cooked oil flows better than when it's new? It's almost like manufacturers should just sell slightly cooked oil..

    Hi how are you Thank you very much I am grateful to you for your reviews I have shortened a lot on people and your expertise learned a lot I have a Sonata 2015 2.4 engine damage on 55 thousand? I put the oil of Shell HLS 5w30 and with the time of engine damage I do not know the reason specifically, but I think of oil by virtue of our weather in Saudi Arabia and put the engine with new pieces and changed the oil to 500 km at the agent and I do not want to change the oil at the agent because the price is too expensive and exploitative I want to ask About eni oil completely devised 5w30 10 km I change it every 7 thousand km because our temperature up to 45 degrees and the use of walking and stopped What do you think of this oil and is there oil is separated from recommend me? Because I do not want to put my engine back

    Well, we did all these wonderful tests but the one test we should consider is the viscosity or weight of the larger of the 2 numbers. In other words, we have tested the winter part of the oil for flowability but what about the summer or hotter part of the oil test? For instance on a 10w 30 oil at high temperatures which oil keeps its viscosity best and stays at 30 weight? Another test to consider would be the lubricity test. To simulate this test it would be a good idea to heat the oil up to about 200 degrees since a fully heated up engine is going to be operating at about this temperature. You could compare the cold lubricity test to the hot one and see if there is a difference between them and a difference between brands. On the hot flowability test we could see which oil fail the test by thining out the most. By the way, your channel is the best!
