Pennzoil has new Euro oils listed under Pennzoil Platinum. Anyone know anything about these? 0W-40, 5W-30 and 5W-40.

I think all we know about them at this point is that their availability is zilch. Nowhere to be found.

I don't think I've even seen a PDS for them yet.

Yup. They've been listed there for quite a few months now, ever since PurePlus was introduced. No word on when if ever they'll appear in the wild.

They are the ones that are going to be available at BMW dealerships to replace the Castrol they currently sell there.

The Pennz Euro 0w-40 probably isn't any better/worse than M1 0w-40 you can get in Walmart for cheap.

Also, I find it strange Pennz 0w-40 isn't listing LL-01 yet.

Pennzoil 0w-40 is a Chrysler SRT crowd oil. Its NOACK is so high, it can't meet some of the more stringent Euro specs such as MB 229.5, for example.

Oh, ok. You didn't say Euro in the sentence I quoted, so i thought you switched to talking about the non-Euro stuff. smile

Essentially they are a rebrand of the Shell Helix Ultra oils available over here

pureplus is their new GTL base oil

None of those are showing BMW LL-04, MB 229.51, or VW 504.00 either. I would have thought that at least the 5W-30 would have had those approvals. Interesting.

There are mistakes on that list. Possibly somebody just did a copy-paste by mistake. For example, there is no way the 5w-30 has Porsche A40 approval.

Platinum Euro L is "low SAPS". It's only available as 5w30 IIRC. You can get it on Amazon.

And PurePlus itself is a Shell's rebrand for Qatar GTL a.k.a QHVI. Comes in three different grades 3, 4 and 8. Available from a 3rd party supplier Vopak at Hamburg, Hong Kong and Houston.

Maybe you don't understand what rebrand is, technically a rebrand has to, at least, be a different word. Both Shell and Pennzoil call it PurePlus (notice it's still the same words) thus making it not a rebrand.

Shell make the GTL so again it cannot be a rebrand, it is just their marketing term for it.

What I was actually saying is the Pennzoil Euro oil is essentially rebranded Shell oil.

Also the Pearl GTL plant is a PSA between Shell and Qatar Petroleum, let me Wikipedia that for you

All I meant to say was GTL base oil that is produced at Pearl plant in Qatar is QHVI with all it's different grades. This is the name it's known for and distributed with to customers. For Shell's own marketing they have come up with a name PurePlus. Without going into semantics of 'rebranding', in my work place rebranding is something that is sold with two different names or brands. Don't know at which point QHVI transforms into PurePlus but at Vopak terminals it's still called QHVI.
