Should you buy engine oils from hypermarkets?

One of the very prevalent questions I get all the time on car maintenance, is about engine oils. This isn't surprising, seeing that it is the one thing we cannot avoid changing after a fixed interval. Often times you'll see hypermarkets selling brands like Shell, Castrol or other branded engine oils for a far cheaper price than it usually retails.Engine oils sold at hypermarts are cheaper, but its authenticity is hard to verify.

Malaysia Boleh – Proton Wira 'Teksi' takes on the Nurburgring

I remember the first time I heard of the Nurburgring was on Top Gear when Clarkson tried to make a lap time of under 10 minutes in a diesel Jaguar. He barely made the time but was outclassed by Sabine Schmidt. Needless to say, I always imagined how fast a Proton would go round the famous “Green Hell”.Well, a pair of Dutch twin brothers did just that with their taxi-liveried Proton Wira!
