Thanks for the VOA!

Looks like the add pack hasn't changed, yet the TBN reads almost a whole point lower. Weird.

Aside from TBN, looks to be the same [censored] in a different bottle. Hope it is true for the rest of the platinum line-up.

You should do it on Blackstone because they sponsor this website

Looks good. I wonder if the additive pack is meant to last the longer drain intervals.

I'm tempted to pick some up for a winter run. Walmart has it for $7/qt and SOPUS also has a rebate going on.

I like the 0W-40 version better...

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Pennzoil-Platium-Euro-0w40-Sn-5-Quart/163165881

I did a VOA on the old style bottle about two years ago...

$2 a quart rebate

I've got the previous PP 5w-40 Euro bottles from 2014. Viscosity was 13.8 then. Had decreased to 13.5 then to 13.3.

Don't get confused by the 0w-40 VOA's mixed in above. Those tend to be considerably lower on the viscosity...especially the SRT version.

I have 7 bottles of the stout 5w-40 Euro mix from Autozone clearance 2 yrs ago - $2/qt. If someone wants them.....
