Hence the purpose of this thread to educate on how well np oils are...
So far those other oils are overpriced due to import fees and pretty name son their labels

Just to get this clear , Toyota wasn't to be mistaken for Toyota Trinidad and Tobago , we are talking about a oil designed by Toyota itself for their vehicles , so to Mazda , Nissan etc.

Toyota and others co-design OEM spec lubricants, for e.g. with Idemitsu.

Hmm...toyota uses Castrol bro not toyota oil....did a lot of servicing there already....did they tell u they manufacture their own oil to use in their cars lol.

O jeezan ages. Men ent easy jed. Of course These car manufacturers dont go through the trouble to make and blend their own oil. They use oil from other manufacturers like castrol or shell or what have you with their required specs. They then brand their name on it in collaboration with these companies. But you buy a toyota or a honda and pay $200,000 for it, wouldnt you purchase the oil specific for that vehicle, engine and transmission? Dont try to be a smartass

He probably just confused between the oil Toyota Trinidad uses to service their vehicles and Toyota branded oil (https://parts.toyota.com/go/genuine-toy ... luids.html).

They rebrand oil, something like that. They purchase oil from a company and use their own labels. However this is hardly done for the Toyota engine oil and Nissan oil.

I spoke to a tech from Nissan us and they use oils made from Castrol. It's a semi synthetic oil.

Buy oil by the bucket and change on milage and you good for years. Change diesel filter before milage.

Used np oil in a 5efe Corolla for a few years. No issues, and no sludge buildup. My padna has a e24 redband maxi and using np for the last 8 yrs, no problem and the original engine going strong

Yes, their are oils that are labelled with toyota, nissan, honda, hyundai etc. You can get these 'oem' oils at leading parts stores, faiz, princes town auto supplies, parts solution, etc. An example of oem oil use is where you cant use any other transmission oil in honda transmissions beside the honda branded oil. Same for nissan cvts.

I know someone doing 400,000 kms on a 2 year old 2.5 turbo diesel engine with EGR and DPF as a taxi on NP oil and also has zero sludge. My mechanic has done teardowns on dozens of engines and none using NP has ever had sludge. The most engines we've seen with sludge have been those using Castrol. Stop spreading misinformation. People simply assume that made/blended in T&T means lower quality and buy into the marketing and branding hype

This is % true my in experience !

Well yes....didn't realise np oil so expensive......a 5 litre of ultratec diesel 5w 40 is $250......

So the theory of getting np as its a cheaper oil....just went out the door...
Back to square one looking for a cheAper alternative to the big brand name imports
