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.

    On your next shootout I’d be interested to see how Petosin, which I believe is another German brand stacks up against a new lineup. Also if your interested you should check out the following site which is a blog by an oil enthusiast that is supposedly independent. It has been what I use to determine the best oil for me before seeing your videos. Keep up the great work!!

    You know what will convince me? When you buy a Porsche and fill it up with Amazon basics exclusively. Give me an effing break! It's so easy to show how your tests are irrelevant, I won't even bother. This is the stuff of infomercials. I bet you turn your light off in your house with 'clap off'.

    Mmm the only question that should be asked here is how much money did this fraud guy got from Amazon...? (can't even type Top Tec properly in the description)...

    Hi, does the same oil brand deliver the same performance for both car and motorcycle engines. As in , if Amsoil has won the car oil test does it mean it's also the best for motorcycle as well. Will it be possible for you to do a similar test in motorcycle oil as well. Especially the 10w40 or 10w50 which seems to be the widely used motorcycle oil grade. Thanks in advance.

    From you tests it would seem that the slow moving liquid molly would leave more film on engine parts once the engine stopped moving. Upon cold start this film is important to lubricate parts. Not sure how much sense your conclusion makes. Also your test proves nothing about detergents that are required to keep engines clean especially with the poor quality fuels we have in North America. I think this entire experiment needs a rethink.

    It is certain that the old saying, 'YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR," is a fallacy. Those who think that fall under the Barnum saying, ~"THERE'S SUCKER BORN EVERY MINUTE". Paying a higher price does not imply getting a better product! Wake up ye fools! Project Farm is just great!

    Have you cross referenced all the data from the oils? Meaning compare the data ACROSS the board so that Brand A can be measured vs an oil it did not actually run head to head against?

    Project FarmPlease I beg you, test CERMA store products, are they holding any true to the claims. I am beyond intrigued, if I am not in the wrong, by buying anything from them.You have a good experience testing things, I don't think I can find out more about CERMA stuff, through testing, than you can undig. They are claiming ridiculous stuff, and I am lost wondering, please disspell it, please!

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

    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!
