between the oils in the OP, the PNZL is a BIT heavier....

Another vote for the Pennzoil HM... it completely stopped a leak in an old Accord I service.

According to the Mobil Super HM bottle it is a full syn.

I only see blend, and even that is hard to find. Only seen on the back of the jug where they compare their own oils in a diagram. M1 HM is full syn, MS HM says blend.

Is there any indication that the P HM is a blend as well? Seems to me it is PYB with the addition of seal conditioners....which is fine, just curious as I compare/contrast these two.

Yes, PHM is a great conventional.

Them MS product is simply going to outperform the Penzoil. For a GOOD high mileage oil, consider Mobil 1 High Mileage.

I have been using the MSHM for some time and have some of the quart bottles and the say that it is a full syn. on the back in the comparison chart.

The qt. bottles are now a more silver color, more the color of the Mobil Super Synthetic instead of the more gray color they used to be.

The 5qt. jugs have also had a slight label change on the front and back both.

I have 5W-30,10W-30 and 10W-40 qt. bottles of the MSHM on hand(some empty) and they all say "Full Synthetic" on the back, I just checked to make sure.

I have the bottles, the website has not been updated.

Go to WM and look at the bottles. They are silver in color, not the darker gray.And since it is a full syn. the front and back labels have been changed.

The back label plainly says "Full Synthetic" under the MSHM bottle in the copmarison chart. I am holding one of the bottles in my hand right now.

The chart has a "Mobil Super" on the left, the "MSHM" in the middle and "Advanced Full Synthetic" on the right and the MSHM says Full Synthetic.

Yeah that's what I thought too.

http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Lubes/PDS/GLXXENPVLMOMobil_Super_High_Mileage.aspx

Mobil Super High Mileage uses a combination of synthetic and conventional high quality base oils...

They could make the webpage that you linked to a heck of a lot more clear about this.

I'm a little slow on the uptake, so motorguy222, what you're saying is that the Mobil Super High Mileage USED to be made from conventional only?
