Has anyone heard of this oil? Eneose sustina

Use it or thoughts? I admire Japanese engineering, million dollar question? Where to buy and cost?

Update: advanced auto parts carry it. No retailers in New Mexico
Thanks in advance

Cheers smile

From what I've learned...

For 99% of what & how we Mitsu 4x4 owners use our rigs for, normal dyno oil is good enough so long as you change it when it's dirty. Only way to reliably tell when it's time to change the oils is to have an analysis done..

For my gen II SR, the typical interval for normal driving using dino oil rated for my engine (see your owners manual for your engine to know what the minimum rating should be) is 5k miles according Speedee Oil lube places. It's in their best interest to be aggressive with that recommendation so it's likely to be even higher but I'll stick with it at 5k or less depending on if it take it off road.

HTH!!

Does anyone change their oil filter every other change as indicated in the owners manual? Just curious

I know it's depended on off roading & environment conditions?

Nope. Not me. Change it every oil change. IMHO it's more critical than having synthetic over Dino oil.

My oil goes about 4K in the turbo truck, 5K when the Raider was operable, and sometimes 10K in the wife's GMC which tells you when.

In all instances, filter and oil are changed together. I use Castrol dinosaurs.

Don't know whether the link will work or not, but NAPA carries it. And it's not much more than MOBIL1 or Valvoline synthetics...
