Interesting comparisons between PP & QS.

I haven't been able to find the links to the QS Enhanced or Ultimate Durability Product Data Sheets anywhere. I know they're out there.

No it doesn't.

Example: 5W30 QHP has a lower pour point and higher flash point than 5W30 PP. Lower NOACK too.

FWIW here is the VOA for QH:

That said, I'm currently running the QHP in a 3.0L Accord and plan on 1yr. or 5-10% OLM.

But, with all the recent promo's, I have a small stash of both.

sorry to hear that. i have run it a few times in my GM trucks and it seemed to do pretty well. This last run that i put the QS HP in my suburban after 7K on previous run on HP and it is dark/ almost black now after 2k miles. Making me nervos becuase in my vehicles it is usually pretty clean up too about 3-4 k miles. Ill probably run it 4 or 5 and change it. Maybe the 7k run was too long and it made things a little dirty.

This is a completely healthy engine with no fluid leaks or anything else wrong that would lead to either conditon. The oil in the crankcase at the time was approx 5 months old and about 4K worth of use. The engine is not known for being hard on oil as I said and the vehicle is not abused/beat on either...

That's not good. While the engine should be fine, varnish with only 4k OCI using a synthetic oil is not good. Maybe Wmart had Q torque on clearance for a reason.

To the OP, my vote goes to PP.
