Well, a Pennzoil quick lube won't know anything about it unless they order it from their distributor. If the Oilstore has it (which is Purvis Bros) a large Pennzoil distributor, then all distributors can order it from Shell.

When will autoparts stores and big box stores finally realize there is a HUGE market for 5W40 oil? The oil manufacturers make it, but hardly anybody stocks the stuff.

Wordwide 5W40 is the universal viscosity. Name me a vehicle that couldn't use it?

I'd run it in a heartbeat if I could get it. Currently running PP 10W-30, I am probably going to go with GC next, but would take Ultra 5W-40 any day.

The new Q&A has been posted.

Question 14:
When will Pennzoil Ultra Euro spec be available in stores...?!

Answer 14:
Yes, we agree we have to fix this. We understand that the distribution of Pennzoil Ultra™ Euro products is still limited. It’s still early days, but we know that most retailers and installers who stock Pennzoil® motor oils will order the product for you if you ask them to. We are working with all our customers on wider distribution. If you would like us to place an order for you, please send an email to debbie.vanschalkwyk@shell.com

Question 20:
I own a 2010 VW GTI. It specs a 502.00 oil. I was looking at your Euro Ultra 5W-40. The data sheet was impressive for this product. This product can go head to head with Mobil 1 0W-40 with the specs it meets. Then the downfall of this product. I couldn't buy this oil anywhere! I called my local distributors with the SOPUS part number. They couldn't even find this oil for me. In my opinion, Pennzoil failed! Why show a data sheet on the Pennzoil's website for months now, and not have this oil ready to purchase by the consumer? That's just bad marketing.

Answer 20:
We agree we really need to solve the Pennzoil Ultra™ Euro oils availability issue. Keep on asking for this product at your favorite Retailer or Installer as this may help us get more distribution.

LOL! They're getting more and more idiotic with their responses. My local retailer(s) would love to order this product for me, but when I give them the part number (provided by SOPUS tech support), they tell me that such product does not exist in the system. I don't see how "keeping on asking" them will change anything. It is SOPUS who needs to get their act together, not the retailers, IMO.

They make it sound as if they don't control their own distribution.

They could learn a thing or two about marketing from XOM.

One of you 5W-40 seekers should email Debbie at the email address above to see what she can do. Who knows, maybe someone in the tech department gave out the wrong part/bar code number. Would not be the first time it happened.

Below is the response I got from her. Let's see...

Dear Pete,

Thank you for your enquiry.

We are in the process of setting up a web link on www.pennzoil.com specially for our customers who would like to purchase Pennzoil Ultra Euro 5W-40. This product will be shipped to your physical address. You will be able to order and pay for the product on-line, but Pennzoil will pay your shipment costs. This is in appreciation of your valued support and patience while we set this up this temporary solution.

I will contact you by email once this site is up and running.

Have a wonderful week-end.

Kind regards,
Debbie.

There you go, oil plus free shipping. I would say that was a good response.
