Will be doing an OC on the Accord and would like to get some opinions on PPPP HM 5W20 since there's a rebate going on. How does it compare to M1 HM? I know M1 HM has a pretty stout additive package. Does the SN rating (versus M1's SL) make a significant difference in the oil's performance? I usually do 6500-7500 mile runs and will be using a Fram TG filter.

why run a GTL paraffin when you can run an olefin. M1 0w20 EP for 8-10K? Im making the jump from "who knows what" Subaru dealer bulk(PEAK actually) to M1 for a longer interval. I want to do 3 oci per year instead of 4 on the forester since the wife drives about 24K miles per year.

For your application, I'd go Mobil 1 High Mileage.

I don't believe Pennzoil Platinum high mileage has been around very long. I think it's a brand new oil

If it were my Accord, I would go with whichever oil is on sale. Honda engines are particular about certain things, but oil is not one of them. Pair whichever 20 grade oil you choose with a Fram TG7317 and go be a family man.

Pennzoil is on a $2/qt rebate for the rest of the year. Mobil 1 just ended theirs on May 31st. Though, it shouldn't be too long before that comes back again.
