This practice has been introduced a long time ago. Here, I would like to share our test result and review about using cooking oil as car engine oil. This test carried out starting on 22/05/2010 with 80805km on the distance meter on a our victim “specimen” Perodua Kancil 660 carburetor 3 cylinder engine standard specification.
After a little research and testimony from other people that use cooking oil including Mr Nasrul Fareed from Egas who use cooking oil in his Nissan Terrano and KDI Editor Iz using cooking oil in his Kancil, I am confident to start doing the test safely.
KDI TEST & REVIEW – USING COOKING OIL AS ENGINE OIL : Minyak masak jadi minyak pelincir
Iz using a Vesawit brand of cooking oil. According to Iz, the engine is smoother which contribute to more performance and fuel efficient. Now, Iz already use it for more than 10,000km without any problem. He always check the quantity of engine oil and found that the oil still clean unlike normal engine oil that tends to be black in colour.
While Mr Nasrul use Minyak Masak Cap Buruh in his Nissan Terrano. He said that the use of cooking oil is actually not much different as using a fully synthetic engine oil. No problem using in a car more than 2000 cc.
Now I put in the Minyak Masak Seri Murni “Sungguh Suci Sungguh Murni =)” from 2kg bottle which cost only RM6.25. It fills kancil 660 engine just enough to “F” mark with only 2kg of the cooking oil. Which means around 3 litre (when buying the oil I dont know how to determine how many litre in 2kg of oil. well actually i didnt know the Specific Gravity of that oil. so I bought 2 bottle of 2kg oil.. another extra i will use to make goreng pisang.. haha)
Minyak masak jadi minyak pelincir?
Cooking oil as engine oil?
After changing to cooking oil as engine oil, this is the result:
- Very obvious performance increased which is more pickup than before
- Engine runs smoothly
- White vapour comes out from exhaust which means more efficient combustion
I will update all info regarding the test from time to time. For the time being, the car angine is good.
