Is Amazon Basics better than Liqui Moly? Let's find out!

  • Published on: 08 April 2019
  • The oil competition series intensifies as Amazon Basics competes against Liqui Moly. Is the low-priced AmazonBasics full synthetic 5W-30 motor as good or better than Liqui Moly's Top Tex 4200 5W-30 full synthetic motor oil? I am not sponsored by Liqui Moly or Amazon Basics. I purchased both of these products using my own money. I am not sponsored by Amazon, Liqui Moly, or by any product manufacturer. 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 and will advance to next round in the oil championship series.

    Red Line won over Walmart's SuperTech and will also advance:

    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.

    This is really interesting comparison. Was it just me or did the liquimolly seem to run a bit more thin and watery like?

    Hey, have u heard of the brand Bizoil 507 5w30? I ordered some of this online here got it for 50% of the price of brand names. Wonder what u think bout it. Im gonna be using it in my 2013 Hyundai i20 diesel. It calls for Api SM or C2 and thats what it meets apparently. Do you think its a ok brand?

    I believe this testing shows that one oil refinery has a better quality control that the other, the quastion is "which refinery did the oil come from?"

    Love the testing! Would like to see a Euro showdown of the VW502.00 approval oils used commonly across many popular VWs. Liquimoly Leichtlauf High Tech 5W40 (typically purchased from online Euro part retailers) vs. Mobil 1 and Castrol 0W40s (available at Walmart). The LM is much more $$ and is often considered the gold-standard for VW enthusiasts. Cheers!

    It amazes me how some people can't say anything good about anything. If these tests do nothing else it shows how the products compared compare to each other. And that is a lot of good information.

    can you do a similar view after oil has broken down due to heat and cold ( after use in other words) because oil breaks down with time, heat, and cold. doing fresh oil testing I feel like can be misleading. Oil in a car does not stay fresh though 5,000 miles it breaks down so I'm wondering how does amazon preform after some oil breakdown maybe 2500 miles or equivalent ( or 5,000 Miles if you do 10,000 mile synthetic oil changes)

    Suggestion...How about adapting a rope and pulley of some kind on your oil pour test...or pouring the oil in different tubes to eliminate human error. It seems to me that the oil to the fartherest left on the viewing screen seems to start pouring first in the 2 videos that Ive watched.Also how about doing a bearing lubricosity test on the cooked oil.

    Will you perform a competition between Victory/Indian motor oil, Spectro Golden 4 semi-synthetic, and Amsoil synthetic V-twin? All 20w-40 wt. This would help settle a great debate among the Victory and Indian motorcycle community! And probably garner a lot of views from the many links to this comparison that would come from those in the forums. I would be willing to purchase and ship the oil to you! Or I could just pay for the oil.And if you could throw in Rotella T with Triple Protection 15W-40, that would a bonus!!!

    Amazon basic full synthetic versus liquid Molly non full synthetic. You should have used liquid Molly blue container 5W30 full synthetic. On that Gray liquid Molly bottle I can't see anywhere on there that it says full synthetic but on the bottle that I use it says big letters full synthetic on the light blue bottle and when I use that link will Mali on my car I get much better gas mileage because of the additives that it has in it with friction reducer. It should have been in this test

    Yeah... but liquimolly is 507, one of the only oils allowed to use on VW TDI's so that it doesn't ruin the DPF and exhaust syste.

    How about a test of Liqui Molly Longlife III 5W30 vs another Longlife III cheap oil? For example Total Quartz Ineo Longlife, costs around 25 dollars for 5 litres (Amazon costs 22 for 4.7 lit), so basically same price. I just did my oil change with Total it in my Audi 3.0 TDI instead of the usual oils for this car (castrol. Liqui, Mobil) and am interested how good/bad this oil is.
