I used to run the red bottle conventional religiously. Great deal when on sale.

Then a neighbor gifted me 5 bottles of PYB.

After doing that oil change, the engine has been running smoother than it ever has. The oil was changed about 2500kms ago, and still it's quieter. With the MM red bottle, it was only quiet for a few weeks after the change, then it was noisy again.

I know this isn't a scientific study, but to me, that's all I needed to change my choice going forward.

just my 2cents

Interesting, so you think the MM stuff was shearing down? I guess with rebranded oil, shell probably tries to cheap out as much as they can and still meet specs initially atleast.

Possible, and maybe the NOACK is within a hair of it's limit....not sure and I am too cheap to submit a VOA for analysis.

But my butt dyno tells me that after 4,500 km, my Infiniti likes this stuff.

Looks like the house brand oil is no longer manufactured by Shell. Jugs no longer match and there were some threads that it may be Citgo now. But, for my leased 2015 Rogue, I run whatever oil I find on sale and 5L jugs at $11.99 are a fantastic deal.

The synthetic is now made by CITGO. Absolutely shameful, but that's for another day to discuss.....

As for the conventional, I was at CT today and the red jugs have a date stamp of July 23, 2017, so we know it continues to be made by Shell, at least for now.
