Why is there not more talk about this oil, its available at most walmarts, looks like a pretty stout oil.the technical data sheets indicate pour point at -51c on all grades which is pretty interesting, its also api sn gf5 resource co serving, wish there was a noack % but pennzoil took them all off for some reason.

I've never seen the PP HM in Canada. I've seen it at Walmart in America.

I'm pondering PHM and PPHM as I work to slow clean my 2002 H6 Subaru. It's the timing chain engine, with unknown service history for the 100K miles prior to me buying it this year. It looks slightly sludgy under the oil cap.

Have a Wix filter going on, not sure if I'll use PHM or PPHM for my slow clean/seal conditioning runs of 5000 miles or so. I'm on my first run of PHM on my other car to see if it'll slow a rear main weep.

I'm using PPHM 5w-20 in my F-150 right now. I got it for free back when Gena from Pennzoil was offering that limited program of UOA's before and after using Pennzoil. I've still got a lot of mileage left in it before I change it. So far, so good.

I'm planning to run PPHM with a FRAM Ultra at my next OCI in the Odyssey. There's a rebate going on and I'm interested in using a HM full syn as I approach 100k miles. The van has been running bulk oil 5W-20 syn blend from my dealer with NAPA ProSelect filters.

I'll let you know if anything exciting happens!

I emailed the rep on the bitog and asked about VOA. She advised that they do NOT provide that inf0rmation. Valvoline is good to go..

What did you ask for? I don't understand. You mean like the information given on a Blackstone VOA?

YES. VOA. I didn't see it listed on PQIA. Granted I know there is much more to oil

Ahh I see. Well no manufacturer provides that sort of information so Pennzoil isn't unique in saying they won't.

I would agree; they certainly won't divulge that. They'll say it's proprietary, but that's really too easy of an answer because we can run our own VOAs. However, formulations change all the time. Even a data sheet will say that this is typical of current production, and does not constitute a specification.

I don't think any oil company wants to have telephone support people reading off concentrations of various elements, only to have them change within a few months, or get into a shouting match with someone whose VOA is slightly different and doesn't understand the concept of error bars, much less lab variation.


Plain, simple Garak.
