Is SuperTech Synthetic Oil as good as Red Line? Let's find out!

  • Published on: 18 March 2019
  • Why spend $11.95 for a quart of Red Line synthetic motor oil when you can buy a quart of full synthetic Walmart SuperTech for less than half that price? Is Walmart SuperTech as good as Red Line? Let's find out! I purchased both of these products using my own money. I am not sponsored by Walmart or Red Line 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.

    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.

    If possible, I'd love to see a test of Harvest King (formally Rural King) oil. They have a Seafoam alternative as well. Their product are a lot less expensive than others.

    Rather confused...seemed like the Supertech did slightly better then the Redline and at half the price seems like a slam dunk to advance. What did I miss?

    Could you do the bearing wear test before and after the oil is cooked with each to see the effects of the cooking on the wear protection? Maybe even do a wear test after running then in an engine for the same number of miles using the same filter and engine later? Thanks

    I would like to see oil tests like this but after using them in a vehicle for 3000+ miles. We need to see how they hold up after being in an engine, and see which one performs best with all the junk from the engine in them.

    I was thinking this was a 2-stroke oil review. I run Red Line full synthetic motorcycle racing oil in my air cooled 2-cycle engines, with great results. I like an oil formulated to run hot. Outboard motor oil is designed for water cooled engines, and may not be the best match. I use my leaf blower for cleaning gutters, moving a fire around in dead brush, plus the annual leaf blowing tournament. I have had the head off, and was very impressed. The cylinder was white glove clean and showed no sign of wear. It was shiny, because it started that way. The cylinder is chrome hard plated. It looked to be good for hundreds of hours of use. Red Line is obviously good stuff, but it's expensive. If any old 2-cycle synthetic would do as well, I might switch.

    Test Rotella against motorcycle specific oil please. Rotella is JASO MA approved for wet clutches but cost much less then motorcycle ATV specific oils. I’ve had this debate over which is best with my buddies for years.

    I have a 1986 Ford Ranger 2.9L. Super Tech is expensive enough for me! Sorry Red just too expensive for my use and vehicle application.

    Hi Project Farm. Please test regular and synthetic motorcycle oil vs car oil vs marine oil. Some use only motorcycle oil due to wet clutch. Some say it doesn't matter which oil is used along as it's good quality oil. Marine oil has rust inhibitors. I think it's a money grab by oil companies, premium is charged for specialty oils. Thank you

    16+ years ago the SuperTech was 13.97 a 5 quart jug and one of the best kept auto secrets of the day. I was still running Dodge turbo cars back then. Then the price went up to 17.97 like they figured out they were only charging for 4 quarts.

    Another great test. I have been using Supertech in my truck for the past 40K miles with no issues. Keep up the great work.

    I have used Red Line 30W in my boat for the past 16 years since I bought it new. I change the oil annually and it comes out looking pretty much like it did when I put it in the year before. My boat still runs like new. Thank you for doing these tests as it gives me something to think about. But in the end, I will stick with Red Line as the boat was too expensive for me to consider saving a few bucks to use anything else.

    Hey mate, just an idea...I and I’m sure quite a few other people following your channel would like to see a comparison of low SAPS engine oil, as most diesel engines these days run DPF systems it would be handy to see a good and fair comparison! 👌
