The number 1 seller in Japan – Hands down one of our favorite products/oils we love pushing. From 0w50 all the way to 75w90.
Eneos 5W30 Synthetic Motor Oil is a high-performance gasoline engine oil that meets the latest SM standard established by the American Petroleum Institute (API). With a viscosity grade of 5W-30, it has been specially designed for good engine starts and good oil-film protection of moving components of the engine at high temperatures. This motor oil brings out the best performance from all types of gasoline-engine vehicles.
Here is some feed back from users out there…
FWIW, this ENEOS oil is run in the BAR Honda F1 race car. ENEOS is engine builders Cosworth approved oil. The same technology is used in the street oils like the 0W50. Last I heard, this EXACT same oil was used in CART engines. No sure if they still are though. The higher the displacement, the more HP this oil seems to be making. I suspect this would make similar HP gains to the EVO shop car on some of the big HP cars here. And what’s cool about ENEOS, is the would give a sample to test here at SF for some of the cars. This oil is no joke. It has great sheer numbers too…which turbo cars require. This is the #1 selling performance synthetic in Japan, and is the recommended oil for ultra-high performance cars there. NSX, Skyline, Supra, etc… If you think this is “snake-oil”, do your own research. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It FINALLY just starting to make it’s way stateside.
OH…and BTW…guess who does ALL of Toyotas OEM oil formulations for their cars? Who does their advanced lubricant R&D? WHo is working in partnership with Toyota to make a new biodiesel? Yep…the same company who makes ENEOS. Nippon Oil Company (NOC). The largest Asian oil company.

I’ve been running the Eneos 0-50 in all the race cars for a while with real good results. We lost a bearing a long time ago running IIRC it was Royal Purple. I run the 5w30 eneos in my truck. Seems to run well. The 0w50 is supposed to offer lower oil temps in extreme conditions and running it in the focus race car it stayed together for 2 45min races with the oil temp guage barried. Pulled the motor apart and it looked surprisingly good.
