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.

    Oh yeah! (I'm glad I subscribed a while back) - I just bought some Super Tech 5W-20W for my Honda Civic 2001 and my Honda Accord 2002 and I was just wondering if it was as good as the full synthetic motor oils I have been using, like Mobil 1. The PRICE difference was BIG. Super Tech was just $14 bucks and I have been paying $28-$32 for Mobil 1. (5 Quart Containers). This guy rocks! Thanks buddy! 👍

    Lol all oils with the donut meet the needs of your car. I'm so glad I invested in oil stock. Nothing funnier than paying more something that does the same as a cheaper product. Keep it up. My wallet loves you guys.

    In 1969 I was using Steen C, I think the first synthetic oil. Purple and it cost $1 qt Vs 30 cents for Castrol, etc. In my Ducati 250-350

    I don't know how you'd test it, but I would love to see a test of gunk build up and how well oils remove the build up.

    How about a video of international oils, Eneos 0w-20 vs Pentosin 0w-20 that would be a little different because a lot of channels test the same brands but haven't found a match of this oils.

    Did you ever do the Super Tech vs. Amazon Basics to see if it's the same oil? I would assume it is.

    It's hard to recommend an oil with ZDDP, which is basically zinc. While zinc is an excellent protection for metals, it is suspected to cause damage to catalytic converters. I say suspected, because I can't find any information that says more than that. Zinc is used in hot water heaters, the US Navy uses zinc anodes in seawater pumps, and it's in off road formulations of Royal Purple motor oil. Royal Purple removed it from their "on road" oils, and they won't tell me why. I can't find an oil for "on road" vehicles that uses it. If anyone has more information, please respond.

    I'd like to see if the temperature of the oil has any influence over wear during the lubrocity test, like 200 degrees Fahrenheit vs room temperature vs -15 .

  • JoJo NoNo

    The bearing test procedure is basically on cold start up at room temperature. So, that's about a third of the story. People forget that all of the oil in the engine/crankcase warms up to 200F+ where it finally behaves as an SAE30 when the viscosity modifier (pulverized/atomized rubber compound) has expanded to make the oil thicker. And there are areas inside the engine where the temperatures exceed 200-300F and the oil film is at it's minimum ability to lubricate properly. Just using a synthetic oil can't alter the oil film thickness at temperatures that are too high or less than ideal. Maybe one bearing test can be started with both motor oils at say 200F and a second at 300F to test if the oil films protect the same as room temperature motor oil or if the film gets super thin or remains "in grade" or SAE30 at high temperature. Similarly, try one bearing test when the motor oils are at "zero" to minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit. More expensive cars and million dollar machines like construction/industrial equipment have oil coolers on them to keep the motor oil "in grade" to maintain an adequate oil film at high temperatures no matter what type of motor oil is used.

    I have always been skeptical of supertech but it may not be as bad as I have thought (or heard) and Wally World has the popular name brand oils for a lot cheaper than the auto parts stores in my area.
