I hope Pennzoil is not watering down there products after they built up a nice fan base .

How was fuel mileage compared to previous OC and why the additives? What went in for next OCI? I had found Valvoline Advanced to be the finest 5W30 I've ran when I had the noisy NIssan QR25DE NO Comparison. Though I would guess wear rates would be similar. And, No additives wanted or needed. An I was never happy with Valvoline Synpower Prior to this new formulation. So no Fanboy -ism involved in my perceptions. Just a HInt smile

And apparently, it has no Moly in it, given the analysis. ! I would Forget that junk. Just find a good oil - like I mentioned in the post above. smile

No difference is gas mileage or anything else. Using the same combo in our RX330 and same thing -- no change in fuel economy, just smooth, quiet engine. I am the anti-BITOG, I like to use additives. Have used them for years along with Pennzoil and took a Camry to 351,000 miles before rust handed it to charity. I have used Tufoil for years, but wanted to try Moly #132 for a few changes -- so I will continue to use them. This oil change is the same -- PPHM, Schaeffers and a Mobil-1 filter (even though the particle count wasn't great, I picked up 10 filters for $2.50 a piece, so I have a lot to go through). I would actually prefer to run Schaeffers 7000 5W30, but the overall cost (product and shipping) is tough to justify with the price of Pennzoil 5 quart jugs at WalMart.

Thanks to the love of MoS2 on here I lunched a new Honda VTEC engine in 2012. I was stupid, there was a lot of chatter at the time and tried it - against my left brain saying , " NO! NOoooo! " Lost O.P, got rod knock. And this is the Honda block use in formula 4 Racing. WARNING: DO NOT USE LIQUIMOLY in a pressure lubed engine with full-flo filtration.
