Till few months back, I was also among the LM lovers. But repeated posts of Xulfiqar bhai and from my own experience, I found oils are just normal engine oils but with high price tag.
LM has introduced the more products like injector cleaner, octane booster, ceratec, etc. here in Pak. market before any other company. That’s why we feel attractive toward their products. But inside the bottles their oils are same. I studied it actually and here is the example.
Take the picture of the LM any oil bottle like 5w-40 or 10w-40 and read the given specs, certifications, standards, etc.
Now take the picture of any bottle of same viscosity from Shell, Caltex, Total, Mobil, ZIC, etc. and you will find the same or even more there.
Hence spending more money on imported oils seems worthless because our available oils from other companies meets/exceeds same standards.
And when I switched to using normal engine oils (other than LM), then I know that Xulfiqar bhai was absolutely correct and infact it was me who were not having enough knowledge to understand his advices earlier unless I spent money and now thinking why I've done.
