Interesting read.
What I found most interesting is pennzoil saying in no uncertain terms that there is no such thing as a group 3+ Nor any + when grading base stocks.
So take that to all those who told me I was wrong when I wrote that there was no such thing as a + base stock.

It appears early on they implied to have a 0W30, then later said they didn't.

Yeah. Here they've said categorically that there won't be a 0w-30. Too bad.
Once I get through my stash looks like I'll be getting more American jugs of M1.

More 0W20 if a thin 0W30 is desired, more 0W40 to get a thick 0W30. smile

While I love this new oil hype and get giddy, I'll probably try it, but honestly... after my stash is over, I'll probably just go back to M1.

Plan on using the Caterham Blend in the future depending on who makes the best 0W-20 and 0W-40 (Mobil or Pennzoil).

And if the CEO decides to have a 0w30 tomorrow then you will get it down the road.

So they say shelf life is 4 years, I still have 25 quarts of PP that I got at oreilys clearance that are dated 2011, I better start using them up first. I thought shelf life would be longer than 4 years, maybe this STASH thing isn't too good of an idea.

Well, some BITOGers may not like their answers, but I give SOPUS two thumbs up for producing the GTL- based lineup and making it available (eventually) to us oil obsessed car geeks.

And the same two thumbs up for allowing us to submit questions about their new product(s).
