Pennzoil as well here. Purchased from a distributor in Chicago named Keller-Heartt Oil.
I do oil analysis and will post results when I do. I for one will only use what is certified until other suppliers get certification. Engine is too expensive to screw around with any other oil in the US than approved Mobil and Pennzoil...
Can you tell us what they are selling for...?
Yes my other concern is that the Rotella and many others aren't even the correct weight rating.
Mobil 1 ESP for sure, I wouldn't put penzzoil in my mower after seeing what an engine torn apart in auto mechanics that was running on it looked like. Talk about sludge

The service manager at the dealer I bought it from made it seem if you don't run the Pennzoil oil they recommend it will cause problems. I normally don't run Pennzoil or Mobile 1 but ran Liqui Moly oil in my previous CRD.

Had my first oil change today, dealer used Penzoil Ultra L 5w-30 according to the part# on my invoice, sounds like it is what's recommended so I'm good with that. Just glad they used the correct oil...
