ADNOC Lubricant quality

Recommended Posts

What is your view about the quality of engine oils being sold by ADNOC when compared with other international brands. I am going away from agency service for the regular servicing of my vehicle so wanted to know if semi-synthetic oil offered at ADNOC is safe to use for my Prado.

Semi Synthetic of any make is just a waste of money. Because there is no set guidelines as to what constitutes as semi Synthetic they can mix in 0.5% of semi syn and legally still sell it as semi syn. So busy out a little extra and get fully syn or save up and go full dino oil.

As for Adnoc I used it long term on my range rovers and discovery and had no issues with it. At 300k I opened up the disco motor to replace the timing chain and it was still clean as a whistle.

We used to use it in rental contract cars. Never had any issues using it while following manufacturers service schedule

@Atif bhai, all oils are good, but I would go with @Gaurav bhai choice of Mobil 1.

Have been using adnoc silver 10w40 in most of my customers and my own cars never had an issue 

If you fancy and can shell out some extra then go for full synthetic 5w40 Lexus oil should run good for 50+ ambiance temperatures....

I was told by my mechanic that oil sold on petrol stations with their own brands is not good for the engine.

He showed me some pictures of the engine full of some dirty old leftovers of the oil even though the owner was changing oil every 10000kms. The only thing that it was petrol station oil.

I personally can recommend Shell Synthetic oil from one of the authorized sellers. It is known to be good and reasonably priced.

I expect ADNOC to be world class but yes I will re-consider opting to a synthetic one possibly Mobil. ADNOC stations have been convenient places too so I have been using them for my older car but now with my Prado I want to ensure that it lasts well in the off-road stress condition.

Thanks for your advice,Mikhail.

No fuel station engine oil quality matches the international brands like: Mobil 1, Castrol or Shell. Period.

Do you have any idea of prices? I got a quote of Aed170 for 1 gallon Mobil,just for the oil.

Yes, it's right. I buy 170 from Shj or 185 from Aweer for Mobil 1 - "0W-40" Advanced Fully Synthetic Motor Oil.

      After yesterday's drive while coming out to tarmac, I experienced little intermittent blinking of engine oil and realized that its time to top up. After coming out I topped up the engine oil to MAX level which was earlier close to MIN level but in safe zone. Then after topping up still engine oil light was blinking on highway, so pulled over and Jalil checked if oil is coming to lifters from engine oil cap and it was all fine. After one day cool off, just started the car and now its no longer blinking but more of a constant light in D and no light in reverse.
      Any idea what is happening and how we can fix this.....?

      I need an advise guys, i changed my car engine oil yesterday its a pajero 3.8 lwb 2010 model. 
      At the time the mechanic done with refilling the new oil hr show me the new level and it was above the maximum mark with 1 cm i told him you put more than required he said no once you drive the car the extra oil will go in the engine oil filter. 
      Honestly i didn't believe that however i decided to go home and check again the next day morning when the car run the oil into the engine and the filter as per his comment. 
      However today morning i checked the oil level and it's still the same 1 cm above the maximum mark. 
      So the question is that harmful?
      Should I drain the extra oil? If yes how to do that DIY ?
      Ps: I only drove 30km since oil changed. 
      Appreciate your advise guys.

      What is more important and relevant in car service: Time vs Kilometer driven?
      I just schedule my Range Rover service with Al Tayer and they said I need to get the major service of 120k kms, while the car is only driven 68,000 kms. Their logic is time-based vs km - whichever comes first.
      They gave me this logic last time too when I sent the car for service and they carried out 108k service when the car was 58,000 kms driven. I somehow felt uncomfortable but went with the flow to not to spoil the service history, which has been regularly maintained by the previous owner.
      This time it's quite over the top with major service estimate, where they say they have to change rear diff oil and transfer box oil every 5 years or 120k kms.
      Is it really required to change rear diff and transfer box oil at 68k kms with 5 years of life.....?
      If you say Kilometer driven is prime then why all car manufacturer has this in their maintenance schedule, let alone UAE but everyone uses the same approach globally. Please explain why......?

      Hi Gaurav how much you are paying to changing oil in these places? I know total amount depends to how many liter oil and oil type but is there any specific price for labour? 
    • By kasim
      Though engine oil has still over 40% life left as per last service kms, but I checked and it's quite dark and no longer in crisp golden color. Do I change oil before the recommended kms interval or should I wait safely for doing more?
      Appreciate if someone can shed light on how to further diagnose engine oil usable condition and life than only based on kms criteria. Thanks.
