Liquid Moly vs. Amazon Basics oil comparison



I don't believe this is an indicative of how the oil performs with our engines, but the results are definitely very interesting.

Yep, same here. I won't put it on my M3, but I will be testing this oil on my daily.

Good vid!

Can't wait to read in a for sale ad:

"Oil changed religiously every 5k miles using amazon basics" 😂

I run liquid molly in my bikes and cars

My only gripe with LM has been how loud the lifters-tick got after using it. I plan to test other oils and see if the issue is consistent.

Pour test is stupid. Engines suck oil through the pickup like a straw, hence we have pumpability tests. That video is clickbait trash.

FWIW, Warren is the blender for SuperTech, the Wal-Mart brand of oil. Huge company.

To add, the load test is also very basic and does not represent protection against other variables like oxidation/contamination deterrent.

Great entertainment wise.
