Maybe this isn't to consolidate the PP and PU lines at all to remove confusion. Maybe they're introducing an intermediate between PP and PU. wink We could be getting it now, but just don't know it. Shell doesn't like to waste old labels and bottles, either.

Hi everyone We are currently working through the details of a big launch and announcement to be revealed this spring. The new offering from Pennzoil is one that will be sure to change the motor oil landscape as we know it and we hope it will excite everyone in the industry. Thanks for all the words of encouragement and support thus far. The BITOG community will be one of the first groups to know the details as we anticipate to officially launch this spring. - The Pennzoil Team

It's funny, because these just showed up on the shelf at my AAP:





Guess they are holding the retail shelf space and reducing stocks? Before this month, I had never seen either of these oils here.

Interesting that the 0W-20 Pour point is Typical -42C / -44F
While the 5W-20 and 5W-30 are Typical -51C / -60 F


Edited by MikeySoft (01/15/14 11:26 AM)
Edit Reason: Added 5W-20 pour point

They're probably changing the name so we would stop referring to them as PU and PP. LOL

Is the PUE showing up in AAP's and AZ's SM or SN?

The labels still say "SM" from what I've read. What's actually inside the bottle, who knows?

The 5w-40 was SM, but the 0w-40 was SN.

Off the top of my head Volvo is the only make I know of that specs a Resource Conserving 0w30 in their cars (ACEA A5/B5), so basically no, nobody specs it. It's great in 5w30 applications for those of us that live in cold places.

IMHO this change was overdue. Too many product lines. Maybe now I'll be able to buy SOPUS's top line product locally again.

That would be awesome. I've seen labs asking $450 to do this test.
