Hello folks and how many of you folks here use either the QSGB and QSUD and like or dislike it? I have been using the QSGB 5W20 in a friends car for oil changes. No complaints from him. My father will NEVER use it or PYB for some reason, as he uses Valvoline. Anyways, I did some looking and cant believe the "stories and old wives tales" bout it causing sludge etc. Thanks in advance for the replies guys.

Either oil is priced at the bargain end of SOPUS's offerings.
Both appear to be good oils and a good value.
I've used both and would use either again.
I've used plenty of Valvoline over the past few years and would not consider it superior to Quaker State, although not inferior either.

QS oil is known to help quiet down noisy engines and is a good product. Run it with confidence thumbsup.

QSAD (green bottle) has lived up to its reputation as a "quiet" oil in Mom's VUE. It came out after 7500 miles looking not much worse than when it went in. I didn't spring for a UOA but I think I will on the second go-round.

Here's a UOA of QSUD in my 2.2 Ecotec:

217,000 trouble-free miles on Windstar V6 with QSUD. Valve train still clean as new and no oil consumption when body rust did it in. Hyundai recommends for our new car. Me too.

Funny thing is Hyundai recommends QS, but my Hyundai dealer uses Castrol GTX for the basic oil change package. All marketing I guess.

QSUD is a regular oil that I use. An excellent oil at an excellent price (well, at least until Walmart jacked up its price).

I've been using QSUD for a while now in three different vehicles - seems great and after the $10 rebate (on 5 qts) it's a killer price.

yea I remember years ago hearing all the bad things about qs back in the day, it was the fram of oils back then,lol, I guess they have really improved it a lot. what is the reason it quiets motors more than other oils of same viscosity? I may try the 5w30 in my truck.
