I was searching the shell EPC to see if I could find any new pds on PYB due to the recent PQIA results with the super low NOACK. They had new MSDS listed but no TDS for an oil called Pennzoil Ultra Platinum Motor oil. It lists GTL as the base oil as well (fisher-tropsch derived). The dates are 12/22/13 so there are less than a month old! Looks like they are combining the PP and PU line up or they are going to be putting the same product in different bottles. They have 0w20, 0w40, 5w20, 5w30, 10w30 weights. Thoughts??

At first I thought this was an early April Fool's joke.

Good find! Surprises me but it actually makes sense marketing wise IMO.

Does this mean that this forum will start calling the Pennzoil faithful "Puppies"?

This is quite likely to be the Sopus product to meet GF-6. They will be ready for the market. JMO

I have always thought the marketing on Ultra was poorly executed. They could have named Ultra something like Titanium (like the progression in credit cards which consumers are quite familiar with) to indicate it was a better or higher quality oil than Platinum.

Here's a thread on that very subject from last July:

Maybe I should have registered the name with the US Patent & Trademark Office?

I sure hope they don't introduce another oil that is above "Ultra-Platinum". What's next...Diamond? Ultra-Ultra?
