Has anyone heard anything in regards to PYB in the 3.8L? I cannot seem to find any solid info on it. A lot of what I have turned up is people using Mobil 1. I know PYB runs excellent in the venerable inline 6 4.0. However, this engine is obviously different.

I would try PYB in my 08 JK but I can never find it cheaper than M1 (5w-20).
I'm never down more than pint (usually less) for my six month (per lifetime warranty) drain interval so I'm sticking with what works. If I ever do come across a good deal on PYB, I'd try it.

Chrysler did drop Mobil in favor of Shell for factory fill sometime early 2009.

The 3.8L has driven millions of soccer moms all over tarnation with the cheapest no-name oil for years.

PYB will be fine and keep the engine perfectly clean. Supertech 5W20 would do the same thing as would any SN rated 5W20.

It's true. Nothing, not commercial or racing abuse, beats a vehicle like a soccer mom.

???

Everywhere I find Mobil 1 its the most expensive oil on the shelf, besides Royal Purple of course.

How is a top tier synthetic such as M1 always cheaper than a conventional? That just doesn't make sense.

A 5 qt. jug of YBP is $16 and some change at Walmart everyday.

Hard to find M1 for that.

Pennzoil's "cleaning power" marketing claim appears to be backed up in the lab.

http://www.pqiamerica.com/Nov2013/5W20consolidateddec30.html

It has got more calcium in its ad package than other popular oils.

That tends to help, along with other additives, to keep your engine cleaner.

Talk about posting false information.

Actual advantage over competitive products is greater than visually shown. Based on ASTM Sequence IIIG piston deposit test using SAE 5W-30. Does not apply to Pennzoil Ultra™ Euro or Pennzoil Ultra™ 0W-40. Pennzoil Ultra™ keeps pistons up to 25% cleaner than Mobil 1; up to 35% cleaner than Valvoline® SynPower®; and up to 40% cleaner than Castrol® EDGE® with SYNTEC®.

The above products are not coal tar.
