I'm debating "trying" PP 0w20 but may try M1 0w20.

What says the BITOG faithful. Would go 7,500 then UOA to see if 10k is doable

Use Mobil1 if you enjoy high iron UOA's.

You don't like Pennzoil because they denied your rebate submittals. So go with the other one.

Plus a few weeks ago you started this thread:

Changing the 09' Camry's oil tomorrow. Will use oversize STP XL-3600 oil filter. Oils I have on hand are:

Castrol GTX "super clean" 5w20, was $16.27-$3.00 manufacturer coupon I used today at Wal Mart

Valvoline Synpower 0w20
Valvoline 5w30 Synpower
Mobil 1 5w30: I gave to the brother for his Saab suv

Thanks gentlemen in advance


It seems like every month you ask us what we would do.

I'd buy based upon which jug size and price is right for you, but I think you guys get 5 quarts no matter what. Mobil makes us suffer up here with weird jug sizes, at least for my sump sizes. wink

M1 AFE looks to have a better basestock blend with better cold end numbers and lower NOACK, according to the PQIA VOA numbers. The MSDS also shows significant Grp IV content.
Either would be a perfectly good oil in real world use and I've used plenty of both in various grades.
Wait until August and the M1 MIR should be back, making it even cheaper than PP with the current MIR.

If you only plan on going 7,500 miles on the oil, I'd say either of those is overkill, IMHO.

Easy there Matt wink

I don't hate PP as I actually called 4 times and finally got my QSGB rebate. I did in fact nab a jug of PP 0w20 today and so far my rebate is processing.

Does anyone know for a fact the PP NOACK?

If it's a toss up, how about supporting the American company?

PS: XOM honored my rebate submissions, one from WalMart and one from Costco (surprise).

I'm not totally sure I understand about the American company; Valvoline comes to mind though
