Sir yes you read it right. I'm comparing a locally blended oil with a German manufactured oil because I don't believe in that logic "Imported hay to acha hay"
Rather I prefer oils over there technical specifications. My knowledge is pretty much updated and still learning.
Let me tell you my experience of these locally blended oils. I've been using Honda's Genuine fully synthetic oil(Total quartz) since 2010 in my both Hondas which are clocked above 113k km. I drive for 1000 kms straight after a month without giving any rest to my car and a 100 km daily in isb.
Never ever. I repeat never ever faced any issue and both of the cars still runs like brand new cars Alhamdulillah. Fuel economy, pick everything is great.
In my recently purchased Toyota Altis Grande I'm using shell helix ultra fully synthetic and and LC 200 Zx. Both cars are performing flawlessly. Lc has clocked around 70k kms and still going strong.
I have poured Liqui Moly Mos2 and 5w-40 fully synthetic in a 2010 city and 8th gen civic. I didn't feel any difference in pick, drive and fuel economy. Why should I pay more for Liqui Moly's 5w-30 when a locally blended oil is giving me the same performance and I'm more than satisfied.
Lastly. Please check the BMW and Mercedes or VW engine oil recommendations list. You will even find Shell helix ultra enlisted over there.
I'd like to tag our respected members and experts here in this thread to share their opinion about Shell helix ultra and these expansive for nothing Liqui Moly oils. @xulfiqar @capsat
