Gday everyone, just wondering if anyone has any thoughts about the new Nulon range of engine oil... they make claims that it reduces friction by 20%. Personally I've always used Shell Super Helix Diesel oil and found it to be pretty good in the Maverick... used Shell Rimulon once and only once...

Any thoughts?

Cheers,
Ben

My folks always used nulon oil additives...

So i have taken over the tradition, and put in one of those Diesel performance additives each oil change (at $16.5) been doing so for 8 years..they always run smooth.

my theory is...for $100 a year (on my kms)...it cant hurt.

dunno about new...i bought the same one ive been buying for years just last week

My thought was bloody expensive. You could change your oil at half the intervals using other quality oils.

Always been a big fan of Castrol but last oil change I actually used Repco oil. No complaints but will be using Castrol again next time. Plenty of people seem to swear by penrite.

For the price you could just about replace the filter EVERY oil change with another brand. I'd probably think that would offer better protection for your engine than the oil?

No matter how cheap or expensive the oil of choice is ,failure to also change the filter at the same time basicaly defeats the purpose of the oil change.

Sure is expensive $45 for 5 litres... but Alloy c/t has a valid point of changing the oil filters when doing an oil change... really for the sake of $20 it's piece of mind. I've even heard of hire car companies only changing the oil filters & then topping up the oil... that's taking it a little bit far, but it validates the put of putting fresh filters each time you do an oil change.

Is the Nulon Oil Synthetic???? it has to be at the price. I use a Castrol Synthetic Diesel Oil and it's a lot cheaper.....
