  • Published on: 11 February 2019
  • I am not sponsored by Amazon, Mobil 1, or Valvoline. I bought all the products for this test using my own money. Dozens of viewers requested this video. I'm not part of the Amazon Affiliate Program either, since I'm not trying to sell products. I do independent testing only. So, thank you very much for the video ideas, including this one! AmazonBasics Fully Synthetic Motor Oil better than Mobil 1 Advanced Full Synthetic Motor Oil? In this video, I tested Valvoline 10W-30 Conventional Motor Oil, AmazonBasics Full Synthetic Motor OIl, and Mobil 1 Full Synthetic Motor oil for cold temperature flow, lubricity, evaporative loss after exposure to approximately 400F for 2 hours, and cold flow of each oil after exposed to heat for 2 hours. Finally, while I don't have a shop full of expensive oil testing equipment, the testing approach I use helps provide good information on the quality of these oil products.

    DISCLAIMER: The testing methods outlined in this video are my own not performed using expensive oil lab testing equipment or following the ASTM, SAE or API testing standards. This is a showdown between AmazonBasics full synthetic motor oil and Mobil 1 full synthetic motor oil. The VALVOLINE motor oil used in this experiment is CONVENTIONAL motor oil, NOT SYNTHETIC. The use of the Valvoline conventional motor oil is to illustrate the benefits of that synthetic engine oil has over conventional motor oil. Why buy a conventional motor oil when you can purchase a synthetic motor oil which will outperform conventional oil for around the same price or a little more? 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.

    How about a simple test comparing regular oil to synthetic to see how much better or worse the oils actually are?

    Amazon obviously didn't refine its own oil..it may not even use the same supplier over time.. Use Mobil 1

    Excellent at home analytical approach. There is a lot of information out there that mobil 1 euro car formula is their only full synythetic base oil. Would love to see the 0w20 euro formula compared to rotella or something similar

    You should add all 3 products with an affiliate. That way you are not being biased. Just my opinion.

    How well does Amazon basic handle on Lubricity Tester after it been heated... LONGEVITY test. Sure initial tests might seem great. Like cookware and all that are great out of the gate it is longevity that maters. I say try cooking them at summer temp engine and so forth several time then try the Lubricity again.

    Repeat the freezing experiment while rotating each product from tube to tube so you can avoid confounding. Otherwise these tests have limited value. I do enjoy your videos though!
