Engine lubricants.

I am seeking for the best 10W-40 Semi-synthetic oil for my engine. Any recommendations?????

Additionally, has anyone ever heard of a NASA engineered engine oil supplement good for every automotive application that vastly increases the lubrication capability of the oil?

i use castrol magnatec 10W-40 in my car. i actually have no idea/don't give a shit if it's synthetic or whatnot, unfortunately.
it's proven to work quite well given what the car goes through, lol.

I go mobil 1 and more than happy with the results, I would go a full synthetic as they are all good. Buy the best oil you can there would be nothing worse than lunching a engine to save $20

This is true! Ever heard of an oil brand called Motul? Any feedback?

That's what I use in my bike, the full-synth 5100 stuff. It's really good. Do they do anything aimed at car engines? I thought they just did bike oils.

Is the engine broken in yet? It should be broken in on normal dino oil.

here is what I get about Motul:




Motul is Technical Partners with leading teams such as Subaru World Rally Team, Japan GT Nismo and Honda Mugen Team to develop the oils for their cars for extra Horsepower and Engine Protection.

Established in New York over 150 years ago in 1853, Swan & Finch specialised in the production of high quality lubricants. With the strong national presence in the USA, Swan & Finch expanded its lubricant business to Europe where in 1932, the company moved its entire operation to France and changed its name to Motul.

Focused on improving the reliability and performance of lubricants, Motul dramatically altered the lubrication industry by being Pioneers to set forth and shape the history of motor lubricants.

1953 – Motul produced the World’s first Multigrade Oil.
1966 - Motul produced the World’s first Semi Synthetic oil
1971 – Motul produced the World’s first 100% Synthetic oil with Ester.
2004 – Motul produced the World’s first Double Ester Technology – 300V Engine Oils

Ester technology was initially designed for the aeronautic industries. Motul was the first lubricant manufacturer to recognize and to use this technology in the formulation of 100% synthetic automotive oils.

With continual research and development, Motul developed the revolutionary Double Ester Technology in 2004. 300V series with Double Ester Technology contains carefully balanced ratio of complex ester with the newly developed macromolecular high polymer ester to produce a lubricant with extremely strong oil film characteristics that retains stable viscosity even under extreme temperatures.

Motul’s relentless pursuit to produce improved technologies and uncompromised quality in its range has made it a stand out producer whose oils are built to suit a broad range of applications from full race to street use.

This level of quality puts Motul in its own category. For example, unlike Motul, very few locally available oils that meet the strict ACEA guidelines for late model Euro performance and prestige vehicles.

I use Royal Purple and my engine loves it.

Most synthetic car lube oils are similar in components. They are usually a mixture of PAOs, Group III oils, esters and perhaps another synthesized lube stock plus the usual additives. The different base stocks are blended to achieve different motor oil properties.
Redline, I believe is an exception - a polyol-ester base only.
The group III oils are controversial because they are hydro-isomerized from crude oil cuts, not built from scratch using ethylene as a building block to (make a PAO). Some say the Group IIIs are not true synthetics. Mobil petitioned the FTC a few years ago to prevent Castrol from saying their oil was synthetic, but lost its case.
There are not a lot of manufacturers of the base stocks and even the big boys have to buy some components from others. Some companies like AMSOIL buy ALL of their components from other makers and blend them to their specification.
Bottom line? Any of the major players market good synthetics. Mobil 1, Quaker State, Valvoline, etc. are good syn oils here in the states and inexpensive also. I can buy a 5 quart jug of QS for $20, Mobil 1 for $22. That's cheap!
