Has anyone seen or done a VOA for Pennzoil Gold? I know PQIA does these, but I have not seen any for Pennzoil's synthetic blends, only for YB and P/PP. There is a PDS out there, which I have, but it is several years old, and does not give very much data.

I'd be interested in a VOA of either Pennzoil Gold, or Pennzoil Synthetic Blend, as I have seen bottles with that label as well.

It has been frustratingly elusive here. Quite a few have used it, a few said that they'd do a UOA/VOA but one has never appeared.

Would be great if the PQIA would do a line up of Dexos offerings including the Penn syn blend.

BITOGer wemay kindly posted some PDS info for dexos1 Gen 2 Gold 5W30 that SOPUS shared with him, have not seen this updated in the Shell online library yet.

Some of the numbers shown are really outstanding for a blend, at least IMHO. SOPUS didn't give us NOACK, but it has to be below 13% for dexos1 Gen 2.

Yep, the specs look good. As for price, it is a little cheaper than the Motorcraft Synthetic Blend (Walmart).

The only problem with the Gold pricewise is that there is no rebate for it.
PP is substantially cheaper per jug at WM if you actually get the rebate.
