My body was changing oil on his 2011 sti today and showed me interesting test with oil Russians do.

You pour oil in metal spoon and start to heat it up with lighter, and some interesting things came up:

1. Castrol 5W50 started to smoke crazy and started to boil quick and then turned all dark.
2. Schaeffer Supreme 9000 "green stuff" did better was holding up for loner but still smoked bad.
3. Eneos was the best, took long time for it to start boiling and almost dint smoke at all!

This test might sound stupid to you but i trust it more than all the online sponsored tests
I used some eneos in my engine and I loved the results.

I was using the 5w-30 oil. I did have to top off, but otherwise the moly count was very high. The last 2 reports were with eneos.

I want to go back to it as well.
