Ravenol South Africa's walk in shop always provides Five Star service. The owner and staff are welcoming and provide knowledgeable advise on the best products for your vehicle. There are plenty of thoughtful touches - e.g. canvas bags - that make the whole experience enjoyable. Every member of staff from workshop to floor staff is friendly and professional, and it is always a pleasure to shop there.

Superb service from a very knowledgeable team, was surprised as too the complexity of different oils and there performance. The owner was very helpful in recommending the correct oil for my application. A neat and well presented showroom showcasing an extensive product range. Will definitely be back and support Ravenol for all future oil purchases.

What Our Customers Have to Say About Us:

Thanks…exceptional service. I just wanted to add my thanks for your exceptional service today (so very rare these days!) ..& also for your very informative detailed product information, which so many of your competitors do not reliably provide..(with expensive consequences!). I will certainly be a returning customer, and will recommend you to others. Top notch!
Good day James, After doing my engine service then Last Monday 02/07/18 I refilled the auto gearbox with Ravenol oil, I’m glad to say the gearbox is a lot more smoother in shifting, so soft I need to monitor my rev count to see that the car is shifting through gears. I’m so happy with your oil and I’m already recommending (word of mouth) to my friends and family. Great doing business with you. I am definitely coming back as a return customer. A clean 100% for service and product.
Here is a short affirmation of the quality of RAVENOL. The transmission service on my wife’s HONDA Jazz was finally due and I drained & replenished with RAVENOL CVT Fluid (see purchase below). There is noticeable improvement in performance and “traction” when engaging into “drive” which the OE lubricant did not have. I will definitely be using this CVT Fluid again! Thanks again for your advice and the great products you guys supply!
I would just like to say a big thank you to yourself and the gentleman I spoke to on Monday. The information past on to me comes with great respect and I appreciate that. There are not many people or businesses out there that provide a service and even to pass on knowledge to someone else. The shop display is really top notch. I would definitely be coming back for any other lubricant products I need. Please keep up the awesome work.
I can confirm that my car’s gearbox is shifting a lot smoother ever since I received it back. The only work performed on my car was a change of oil and filter. So the Ravenol DCT/DSG oil is definitely of superior quality than what the Audi agents use.
Hi Matthew, I want to thank you and acknowledge your excellent service in handling my order. I also thank the courier company for the excellent service even during this difficult time, they managed to deliver. I have received my order. A definite 10 out of 10 for your service.
Hello Freddi and James, This is just a short note to let you know how impressed I am with the Ravenol MTF-2 75W-80 in my Iveco Daily 4×4’s gearbox! I had grown used to struggling to shift gears while still cold, especially into 2nd (either from 1st or down from 3rd). Even a bit of double de-clutching didn’t help. After filling with the MTF engaging any gear is super slick – like a 1.3L Toyota Corolla with 300 000km on the clock! 🙂 Can’t wait to drain the diffs and transfer box and fill with the VSG. Thanks and take care.


I would like to extend a sincere thank you to you for the exceptional service that you provide. It is rare for one to come across a company that provides clients with such top notch service. Your prices are very good, you ship all the way to Pretoria without the products getting damaged and you respond to emails without delay. I will most certainly tell everyone I know of how good your services are. You can compete with companies that are situated a few km’s from my home and you are all the way in Cape Town. Freddi, I want to thank you for your articles in the 4×4 magazine since this is where I discovered your company.
Just a little thank you from the V8 Masters team for the wonderful gesture of the shirts. The staff were all wearing them on race day and looked very professional. Also a huge thank you for all your support over the past few years. You have always gone above and beyond to assist us with your extensive knowledge. Lastly, please thank Andy too for his help on race day. He shows real passion for motorsport, a keen interest and isn’t scared to get involved and work. Many thanks again and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
Hi sorry for the delayed email, I just want to thank you and the staff for their dedication and excellent service I received from you guys , it was a pleasure shopping there and will definitely be back. Please continue what you are doing so that others can learn from you. I have told all my friends and family hopefully they will come to see for themselves.
The Oil Finder is just magic!!! I just used it and was directed to the same oil I had picked.. that’s the one DCT/DSG Getriebe. Thank you so much Matthew, I will be sending you my full details as you requested.
We have received the oil, I would just like to give you guys a 10/10 for service! It was painless and I will definitely recommend Ravenol again! Thank you very much for all the goodies and once again excellent service. Keep up the good work.
I am blown away. I ordered on line on Wednesday, courier collects in Cape Town and drops off in George a day later. If this oil is half a good as your service then it will be awesome. Thank you very much for your excellent service. Thank you James and Freddi for the time you took to answer all my questions. It is much appreciated. I will keep you updated.
Just wanted to say a big thanks to you and your Dad. Goods sent out late on Friday, arrived at me before 10:00am this morning. Not just this but you guys took the time and effort to mull over the best (and as it turns out the most affordable) options for my vehicle, given the typical service conditions in SA. This on a busy day – not too shabby…Remarkable service I’d be proud of!
Thanks Freddi . Firstly , you guys making shopping for car Products super fun . Friendly fantastic service and you guys know your stuff . Secondly , world class products and something for all my motoring needs. Mmm, what fluids to replace next . See you again soon I guess.
Ravenol VMP SAE 5W-30 engine oil: I recently bought the above engine oil from you to service my wife’s 10 year old VW Polo in place of the Castrol Magnatec 5W-30 oil that I’ve used up to now. I’d assumed that it was a very similar oil but am very impressed with the change to the engine. For some time now the engine has had noisy hydraulic lifters which clattered for about a minute on startup. Now they’re completely silent.
Good day Matthew and Freddy- received the parcel this morning. Thank you so much for the excellent service, really impressive. In a world where mediocrity is the norm it’s great to deal with a company that does what they say they’ll do. Have a wonderful weekend
I am so happy with FO 5w-30 oil for Ford , Where do you see clear oil in diesel engine, well… with Ravenol yes.
I have changed the oil on my Grand voyager and I can tell you, dam this stuff is good! So far have covered 1500 km’s and the oil is so clean that I battle to find the level on the dipstick.Now busy introducing it to my fellow Grand Voyager crew.
Just thought I’d give you feedback on the 10w40 you sold me for my R6. What a change over the previous Liqui moly the bike came with. Gears are super smooth. Oil really does make a difference.
I really appreciate the time and effort that you do to explain how lubricants work and what additives and base oils are required to classify the oil. Read your article when I had lunch and found it very informative, thank you for all the help and information.
I want to again thank you for the generous sponsorship. This was our 7th annual tour and it is great to inform you that we did not experience any heat seizes as in the past years. (Chicken Runners charity run of Classic Vespa’s that run from Roodepoort past Lesotho to East London, Port Elizabeth and back to Roodepoort – a round trip of 2 700 km’s)
Here is a snippet of an oil analysis I had done on my Chevrolet utility using HLS 5w30 oil. The sample was done after 10 000 km was done on the oil, mostly to work and back every day. Ignore the negative values on soot as the machines are calibrated for diesel oil. Important is the wear and additive values. Just showing that Ravenol is a good oil.
Hello Freddi, thank you so much for everything ! I always use your name and your company when it comes to amazing service – I haven’t yet experienced any company that comes close to your company excellence and the knowledge offered – and I am in Business for 26 years in SA . I read all and all is 100% .Please don’t retire before I do!
Hi Matthew Just received the oil, and the cap etc (awesome surprise by the way) Thank you for your outstanding service, it is greatly appreciated. You guys have just become my 1-stop oil shop. Have a great day.
Thank you for the reply and response, its great that your company takes the effort in listening to the consumers’ needs,
Guys Thank you so much! What a pleasure to do business with professional people for a change. Miss that since I left Pretoria. Received Saturday morning in good condition INCLUDING GIFTS! THANKS again. Will surely do business with you again. Greetings from Colesberg.
Just wanted to say thanks for your great service. We really got fantastic service and great advice from you guys, Matthew and team, at Ravenol Obs. (WhatsApp)
Thank you for the assistance and more so the professional service I received with my purchase.
Hi Matthew, I received the fluid I ordered in the most amazing time. As I'm always complaining vociferously about service in SA I want to thank you and your business for the most polite, helpful and efficient service imaginable.
