Supertech 5W30 has been the exclusive oil for my 2001 Camry 4-cyl for over 150,000 miles. I still get 29 mpg on the highway. I change the oil every 3000-5000 miles and there has never been any sign of sludge (you can tell when the oil is draining). I don't know if Supertech is better than brand name oils but it certainly is an excellent value oil.
For normal oil changes you can't beat the supertech oils. Pushing 150k miles now on Hyundai Sonanta with 5k oil changes with supertech filters and oil. Both are high quality items and perform very well. Just look around on the web for oil analysis on this oil and you will see what I mean. It is as good as any other comparable dino oil and cost less.
I have been using this oil for over ten years in my Nissan altima. I have never had any problems and my car has been great. Also the supertech filters are great.
The oil is a great value and i use it in both of my trucks and i have not had any issues.I change my oil between 3k and 4k and the engines are quiet and run great.
I have been using Super Tech oil (and filters) for at least 15 years. I used this in my 1997 Camry, changed oil and filter every 3,500 miles, put over 240k miles on the car. The car never used any oil, got great gas mileage and still running like new when I sold the car. The new owner is still driving the car two years later.
You can't beat the price for either item. The Super Tech oil filter is no longer carried at Walmart.
I have used this kind of oil from this name for many years and so far, no problem has been found. I feel comfortable to use the oil from this name.
Usually, I use penzoil for 97 Lexus ES300. I tried ST conversion oil a few times. With ST oil the engine runs noisier right after change or after 1500-2000 miles. With penzoil or valvoline engine works smoothly and quietly. The difference is like you drive a newer car. This condition last up to 4000 m. (dint drive longer with one oil change).
I would recommend change ST not longer than 3000 miles, or use a good brand oil during 5000 m, if you want to compensate for the difference in price. Also, brand new ST oil is darker and smells bad. I think it is because this oil contains higher (maybe 40-50%) proportion of recycled oil. To be fair, didn't see any difference in mpg and cleanness.
I got my 02 Malibu 5 years ago and I normally use Quakerstate oil in my car. I usually have my dad change the oil in my car and I made the mistake of letting him pick up my oil. Instead of coming back with my regular oil he came back with this stuff. Well he changed the oil and almost right away I knew the difference. My engine didn't run as smooth and was noiser than normal. At first I didn't think it was the oil until after I got another oil change. When I had the oil change this stuff was really dark in color compared to Quakerstate, even at 3,000 miles. I will never again use this stuff and I'm more than happy to pay 1-2 extra dollars on good oil.
The cap on this plastic container does not prevent spills. Also, there is no tab to peel off the aluminum seal under the cap, making it frustrating to open, because you have to just puncture the seal instead of peeling it off easily, which subsequentially affects the pouring of the oil. We added oil to my wife's car in the walmart parking lot and then put it in the back of the car. On the way home it leaked all over even in an upright position with the cap on tight. If you buy this oil don't open it unless you are in a garage and have a nice flat shelf to store it on, as it is not able to contain the oil if you move it around. So mad there is oil all over the back of the car now, won't buy this again just because of that.
I used this oil for 200 miles after I changed the head gaskets. When I was pouring it in, it was like water. It meets the API standards but I don't trust it.
