Carlube 5W40

Carlube 5W40

This motor oil was a gift from a friend.

Initial fill at 125,880 km on Dec 31, 2015.
Changed out at 133,708 km on May 18, 2016

The oil saw 7,828 km on my ride is 8 y.o. Honda Stream 1.8 X / RNA6

The 4.55L capacity is more than sufficient to pour all into the engine with a filter replacement.

Final comments
The oil is decent enough. Mileage kept up. It is cheap to use. No complaints or oil burnt whatsoever.
I will use again if available / on sale.


Update on Mar 30, 2016

Mileage 130,805 km

So far it has been almost 5,000 km on this oil.

I do find that the oil seem thinner than the Shell Helix Ultra (SHU) 5W-40 at room temperature.

Also, the fuel consumption seem to be a bit worst off.

Noise wise, it is about the same as SHU.
