ENEOS “We Love Cars” Series Eight: Subaru WRX STI

If you love turbocharged AWD platforms, we know you’re also going to dig our coverage on the Subaru WRX STI, archnemesis to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. This installment of the ENEOS “We Love Car” series highlights another of Japan’s most tunable sports sedans, and over the next couple weeks you’ll discover its full potential when modified correctly.

The high-performance STI benefits greatly from the use of high-quality ENEOS performance lubricants because they were and continue to be developed with and used by the majority of Japan’s vehicle manufacturers, such as Subaru.

ENEOS expertise allows us to engineer high-quality performance lubricants, utilizing advanced base oil technology and additives to provide vehicles with optimal protection against wear, even under the most extreme conditions, while also reducing friction for superior performance and fuel savings. We love cars so much, we’ve dedicated ourselves to protecting them and working with the car manufacturers to ensure every car is fully protected.
