Re: What Type of Oil do you use?

Been a Mobil 1 extended performance guy 5w30

But I have been looking at the pennzoil ads and decided to give the Pennzoil platinum a shot since it has the mopar rating. 5w 20

Re: What Type of Oil do you use?

I changed brands and viscosity this last oil change.
I went from Mobil 1 EP in 5w30 to Pennziol Plantinum in 5w20.

The way the Pennzoil feels in the truck was like when I first changed from conventional to synthetic.

What I have noticed now is that the truck takes longer to get up to temp now. I drove home from work two days in a row and the truck did not get up to full temp.

In the past with the Mobil 1 the same trip would have the truck giving off plenty of heat by the time I parked in the driveway for the same 10 minute drive which is 50% uphill.

Pedal effort has also gone down to get the truck moving. When I fill the tank this afternoon I will monitor my MPG to see if there is any improvement in my MPG.

To be fair on my next oil change I will try the Mobil 1 EP in the same viscosity to see if I maintain the same performance and overall feel. If the Mobil degrades the performance then I am switching to Pennzoil for life and not looking back.

Its hard to be the number One and keep that position, somebody is always waiting to takeover that spot. And I think Pennzoil has been actively doing that by going after Ferrari, Lamborghini and SRT as their factory fill oil. Their advertising got me to try and for now they seem to back up their claims.

I haven't tried any of those boutique oils, that I would have to import, so I buy the best I can get from the local advanced auto parts store. So far I am really pleased with the Pennzoil.




Locally the pennzoil cost even more than the mobil 1 so cost wasn't a factor in the decision here.

I just wish I could buy the Platinum Ultra locally to see how that one would work out.
