For this time around, I will be changing the engine oil brand from Total to AMSOIL. The reason being is I have been spoiled by the performance of Total Quartz 9000 5W50 from the previous service. Unfortunately, the oil rating is too great for my little engine hence I need to find alternative which must be a 100% synthetics oil from PAO base stock.

Other than that, I’m looking for an engine oil rating which is almost like the original recommended rating, 10W40. As the result, AMSOIL 10W40; the characteristics of this oil is between Total Quartz 9000 5W40 and 5W50. Almost equivalent to Total Quartz 7000 10W40 but with PAO base stock and no friction modifier.
