Maybe this is why Ultra has been disappearing and lot of sales on Platinum.
Just from the Msds it sure looks like pure GTL with mineral oil as just an additive carrier.

I would bet this will be Dexos approved also. I maybe wrong but in light of all the recent developments (the NOAK of PYB) it seems Shell might be really upping the ante with their Pennzoil brand.
The question on my mind is how will Mobil answer these new super oils.

Shell's top-tier oil in Europe (and elsewhere?) is called "Shell Helix Ultra", which is probably the source of the name. But it was really never differentiated from Platinum, and for North American Consumers "Helix Utra" means absolutely nothing.

You'd think they could have advertised GTL base stocks, low volatility, etc. to explain its wonderfulness, but they must've concluded we're too clueless to care.

So PYB is the new PP, but labeled Dino, and they have a single premium synthetic to cover the 0w emerging market. Makes sense.

There used to be a PP 15W50 and 5W50. I wonder if the new Pennzoil synth will be available in a 50 weight,or if QS will be their only one?

I think Castrol would sue them for that. eek

Castrol Edge with Titanium is not the same as Castrol Titanium. The brand name is Castrol Edge; the word titanium denotes part of the additive package or some other descriptor. I think SOPUS could have used it and Castrol could not have said a word.

Blend your own -- mix the 0w20 and 0w40.
