Is Castrol Motor Oil better than Kendall? Let's find out!

  • Castrol vs Kendall and Quaker State vs Valvoline competing for the final two positions in the Elite 8 oil series showdown. I am not sponsored by Castrol, Kendall, Quaker State, Valvoline or any other manufacturer. I purchased all of the products tested. 100% of Project Farm videos are ideas that come from those leaving comments. So, thank you very much for requesting this video! In the previous episodes, Amsoil won over Royal Purple, Amazon won over Liqui Moli, and Red Line won over Super Tech, Pennzoil over Lucas, and Penrite over Motul. The brands that won will advance to next round in the oil championship series.

    The testing methods outlined in this video are my own and not performed using expensive oil lab testing equipment or following the ASTM, SAE or API testing standards. The three tests outlined in the video include tests for viscosity at varying temperatures, film strength, and evaporative testing. In my opinion, the testing approaches used in this video provide consumers with valuable information on choosing the right motor oil for their specific application. Hope you enjoy the video and thank you very much for supporting the channel by watching the commercials and through Patreon support.

    Also the oils should pour DIRECTLY into the center of each track for accurate testing of flow rate.

    6:35 I take issue here. If both lost the same amount of weight (material). That is a tie. Scar length is actually a measure of the density or hardness of the test material and not wear protection. At this margin of error you should call it a tie or repeat it until you can show a statistical trend in data. I love your channel. Not being critical. Just offering my opinion.

    I use castrol edge 0w-20 in my Honda and it definitely makes my engine run much quieter and in my opinion more efficiently. Castrol oil is the way to go in my opinion

    Have you ever tested Castrol's past marketing of being "attracted" to heat (the hottest engine components) verses other brands that Castrol claims are repelled by heat? I would be interested in your person testing and how you test. Thanks!
