What does PUP stand for? Why would penzoil switch up a fairly new product so soon?

PUP is up on the Autozone and Walmart websites. No pricing or availability yet.

How do I tell the difference between the PU SM and SN version?

I bought PU a few weeks ago when my oil change was due and got the regular PU at Autozone. How do I know which "version" I got?

If it was the regular PU, not PUP, should I go buy up as much of it as I can before it's gone? Might hit up a Walmart this weekend.

Jeff

Actually, based on technical sheets, PUP has higher Noack than PU, so that's why people are on the hunt to buy out the last remaining stock of PU before PUP takes over.


Do you remember what the NOACK was on the PUP? I can't find the data sheets anywhere online. I can't even find the PUP website

I believe the PU NOACK is in the 6 range from what I last saw.

Not sure I understand your concern. One says "API SM" and the other says "API SN" on the label.

As usual, SOPUS is slow to update the Pennzoil.com website. They did create a site for Pure Plus (includes both new Platinum and Ultra Platinum), but there isn't much there at present...

Well that makes it easy. I wasn't sure if there was something technical you had to look for and didn't think it would say it right on the bottle.

From the little google searching I did it seems I can't go wrong with either SN or SM PU but SN would be the better of the two, correct?

Do you have the new PP technical sheet too? Can't find that one either.

I'm thinking the PDS for PUP must have a few errors. It just doesn't make sense for PP to be "better"..

Better?

PDS is just a few numbers on a sheet of paper. It doesn't really tell you how the ad pack is structured, and how the oil will perform in your engine.
