Oil samples are purchased on a random basis as found in retail outlets. There is no effort to target or avoid any brands. Additional 5W-20 samples will be forthcoming.

I'd like to see PQIA officially test G-OIL's 5W-20 offerings. I just ran and posted two VOAs, so I think they would be rated well.

Take a look and see if they would be worth testing:

These 5w20 oil are not available in Canada. I only have seen Havoline here.
Not that I will use any of them.

That seems to be the unfortunate legacy of Shell taking over Pennzoil-Quaker State. They got two of the most highly recognized oil brands out there, but their own product suffered.

I thought CP dumped the Super 76 line? I haven't seen it on the left coast for years.

Once again Formula Shell looks like a ringer for QSGB, not a bad thing though.

I've seen FS advertised at smoking prices at some farm stores, but unfortunately none of those do business in my area yet. There is one farm store that carries it here at a decent everyday price but they never put it on sale. Yet they run Trop Artic for $1.99 a quart constantly.

So a synthetic whips the conventionals by a wide margin. Uh-oh.

Sure, I too would have liked to see the oils grouped together(syn w/ syn...dino w/ dino) in their catigories but, it's still a very good start into the 5W20 range.

Thanks!

Not even the Shell Stations around here carry Formula Shell. They carry, rather unbelievably, Chevron Supreme and Havoline. Oh, well, QSAD appears to be the same additives, much better Noack, and is plentiful.

Many Essos up here carries PYB and QSGB, so that evens things out. wink

Chevron is found at Husky/Mohawk stations, but at least in western Canada, Husky/Mohawk is the distributor for Chevron products.
