Is Pennzoil Platinum still the best buy for an over the counter durable oil?

Simply stated: YES!

PP is an excellent oil at a great price.

I see a lot of people on here saying QSUD is the best bargain synthetic, I think its like $20 at walmart. I can't speak professionally just saying it is cheaper than PP from what I've seen and supposed to be pretty stout

Seems like the SOPUS products are the best bang for your buck.

Quite honestly, I think Quaker State Ultimate Durability is the better oil and better bargain.

Pennzoil Platinum is a great value...particularly if it's bought on sale...I use it.

PP is the best thing since sliced bread!
QSUD is a close second, but pails in comparison to platinum's amazing awesomeness

PP was the new GC.

I used it once when I bought it on rebate.

Going back to QS.

Lots of good options if you shop sales. PP is one of them. I bought a couple 5qt jugs of Castrol Edge for $21 each last week.

Its good oil. 'Best buy' depends on what its priced against, and what the price difference is. Also depends on how significant that difference is to you.

Last summer my WM was selling it at prices that undercut (by a lot) every other synthetic they sold, making it hands down the best buy and I stocked a bit of it.

On my most recent trip to the WM oil aisle (a curiosity only one as I'm not looking to increase my stash any right now), it would have been a much tougher choice as it was priced within a few bucks (over or under) several other synthetics that were all rolled back. These were from the brands WM usually does a dino rollback on: Valvoline, QS, Castrol, and Pennzoil.

I held off for now, though it was tough to resist picking up some QS UD to try out next winter, as the price was good and its an oil I'd like to try out (I have a preference between QS and Pennzoils that is close enough for a coin toss, or slight difference in price, to decide).

QSUD meets all the same specs as PP and it's $5 cheaper. platinum advertises its cleaning abilities while QSUD goes for high temperature protection and reduced oil breakdown. so unless you feel like your engine is dirty or sludged i would say QSUD is a better bet and may even be the better oil.

I've been using it exclusively in my wife's malibu for 3 years now with a 6 month 10 k oci, and see no reason to stop using it. I have also used it in my cherokee and off and on in my new vehicle. I have also used mobil 1, Edge, QS syn, Valvoline syn and amsoil. Aside from the Amsoil the PP keeps my engine the quietest and smoothest. I was planning to try the new Amsoil OE but decided to stick with the PP. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
