I provide some maintenance for Old World's ethylene glycol unit. I have no idea where they get their oil, but I know that they make Herculiner roll on bed liners as well as Peak antifreeze and some other stuff. I know they treat the employees well, not sure how good they are at making oil. If I run across one of the management people I'll ask about the oil.

Viscometric properties for Peak's 5W30 formula are superior to that of Pennzoil conventional. Both 5W30 formulas share a pour point of -39C, but Peak 5W30 has a higher viscosity index and better performance in the NOACK Volatility. From this limited data, I'd say it's a pretty decent oil, and if you can find it, their 5W20 formula looks pretty good too.

You can check out published data for their other forumlas here .

Pennzoil YB 5W-30 / Peak 5W-30
Flash Point: 216 / 206
Pour Point: -39 / -39
Viscosity @ 40C, cSt: 63.9 / 55
Viscosity @ 100C, cSt: 10.5 / 9.94
Viscosity Index: 158 / 169
NOACK Noack volatility, %: 14.5 / 14.5
HT/HS Viscosity, cP: 3.0 / NA

I'd take PYB.
