I just got off the phone with Pennzoil. Even they could not help. Just gave me the name of the nearest Pennzoil retailer and of course I call them knowing what the answer is going to be...nope don't have it in our system.

Since it is the European Formula it's probably pretty close to the same. If you want to try a Pennzoil European ACEA approved oil, this one would be a good one to use.

15. Will Pennzoil Ultra™ Euro 5W-40 replace the Pennzoil Platinum® Euro 5W-40? When will we see the Pennzoil Ultra™ 5W-40 in stores?

In the near future we will only have Pennzoil Ultra™ Euro 5W-40. We are working with our retail customers to make these vis-grades available.

The FAQ that this info came from is what, 3 months old now?

According to SOPUS, PUE 5w-40 already exists. But according to their distributors and retailers, it does not. :)

I can acquire this oil for re-sell, as well as QS 5w-40 Euro.

I used to re-sell alot of BMW 5w-30 oil as well through my old garage.

I was marking up the oil .50 cents per bottle. Problem was the shipping which no one wanted to pay regardless of the fact that I was not marking up the shipping 1 cent.

If there strong interest, PM me.

BTW.. that QS version, they sell the heck out of that at the disti level because believe it or not, many quick lube places do pay attention to specs.

I just got an email from the oilstore. They said that they just got a shipment of PU 5W-40 in and will let me know pricing as soon as they get into their system. Should be interesting to see what $$$ is.

Why doesn't SOPUS make the Euro compatible stuff more widely available?
You can find Syntec 5W-40 pretty easily.
M1 0W-40 is everywhere, as is M1 5W-40 TDT.
GC is readily available on the shelf at AZ or PB, and almost anyone else who carries Castrol can order it for you.
The only SOPUS 5W-40 you can find on the shelf is Rotella.
Why?
You can't really blame the retailers, if they can't even order it.
What is SOPUS thinking?

Just stopped at a Pennzoil Quick Lube Center. Inquired about PU 5W-40. Nope...don't have in stock but let me check my list, again don't even show on the list!

What the heck is Pennzoil up to?
