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!

    I could use your help. If you'd like to help me decide on which products to test, please consider subscribing to the channel (it's free). I occasionally ask viewers to vote on products to test and YouTube only includes those subscribed to the channel.

    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.

    I'm actually very, very satisfied from Liqui Moly engine oils, I use them in 2 cars and 1 motorcycle and never had a problem!

    A race bracket...where can I lay my bets. Scotty Kilmer just done a review an Amazon basics oil. Same outcome..nit bad, not bad. I also mention this channel on his as well. Hope nobody is offended because people cry about it. Neither one needs a plug to boost views. Good, useful CONTENT as usual. Enjoy all your work and prep on all videios.🖒👌

    You didn’t even use an apples to apples product comparison- one’s an API SN+ ILSAC-GF-5 , low HTHS fuel economy oil vs an ACEA C3, high HTHS, engine protection product. They are formulated for completely different applications and have almost nothing in common composition wise besides the grade. What a failure this is. And you wonder why the internet is filled with a bunch of nonsense about oil tech. People like this 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

    Can you test Petronas Syntium Synthetic Oil? Since the technology claims to win 6x championship for Formula 1

    What about the chemical analysis comparison? Molybdenum disulfide? There's way more to be looked into Moly's minerals and other additives that may be beneficial before talking up a cheaper product.

    Have you done any tests with 0w-40? It would be interesting to put Amazon against Mobile One and Liquid Moly. I was also wondering if repeated heating and cooling would yield different results. Great videos!

    You should do a test of higher viscosities. I'd like to get some more info and real world tests for the best oil for our 12 valve cummins

    I see Kirkland has synthetic oil now. $30 for a two pack of 10 Quarts and has the same API rating of Amazon Basics of SN +.

    WTF you saying do i pour into my S62 engine now? 10w60 Amazon oil??? Stepping back a step, ... one must realize the cold viscosity test must be accompanied by a heat viscosity test... for all we know that Amazon oil might be mis-labeled 0w15, looks great in cold but offers no viscosity/protection at proper operating hot temperatures.

    Liqui Moly have the best tech specs and it is a lot better oil than Amazon's. You can't judge only by high and low temperature tests. Those bearings that you used have nothing in common with engine cylinders, pistons, crank and camshafts! Your test is a JOKE period.

    Folks, this is what in engineering we would call a Mickey Mouse methodology that has nothing to do with actual liquid properties inside a hot high pressure system, expected to hold an engine together, without any air bubbles or seizures, all the way to 400 km/hr. Or your average 250 km/hr Autobahn... The moment we talk heat, we now talk a higher number, e.g. 40. There are dozens of critical properties that this metal on metal joke never recreates. Besides, unlike in Hyundai engines, performance engines DO NOT RUB METAL ON METAL INSIDE- and are not expected to. Slice open a 15 year old performance German engine, and original tooling marks are still visible, unaffected by piston movement. In the end, just warming up an oil, or just dropping it at -20C does not talk as to how it starts behaving the moment the ignition is switched on...

    You should try it against the liqui moly synthetic oil. The one you user is a synthetic blend. Not a full synthetic.

    Have you tested various 0w-40 oils? My Porsche dealer recommends mobile1 in my Cayenne.

    The liquid test isn't correct... You want the maximum of lubrication and when the winner is amazonbasics, the smoother oil wins.So in this case liqui moly wins the second test for me.

    These results are quite surprising. I really expected liquid moly to dominate. This is great info to know. I believe im going to start using amazon oil. I would really like to see a friction additive show down, for example zzdp (zinc) vs other borate additives

    So Amazon Basics is better at low temperatures, Liqui Moly is better at high temperatures. But for that low price, Amazon Basics defenitely is a good deal.

    Some interesting fact about LiquiMoly:Liqui Moly had a nice boss. Quote:"Through advertising campaigns of his company, in which he appeared himself and emphasized the social responsibility of his company for local jobs. He participated several times in TV talk rounds, and spoke in favor of minimum wages and higher top tax rates.As a co-initiator of the wealth tax initiative, he is now committed to the reintroduction of wealth tax. In addition, he clearly criticizes the dominance of the financial industry over the real economy and calls for stronger government regulation of the financial sector. In this context, he accuses the governing politicians who do nothing in this direction of corruption or stupidity." Thats not the average philosophy of every boss and especially not AMAZON which tries to avoid as much taxes as possible but maxing out profit everywhere.

    these tests really dont mean much in an engine. a better test would be to run each oil for the same time and send it to a lab.

    Ohh my... please do not listen to this dip shit. Liquid Molly does state of the art testing on all of its oils and other products. They are known globally to be one of the best manufacturers of motor oil. Amazon basics is not

    Ok, but how will the amazon oil work after (for example)10 months or 1year of use?
