I just ordered 5 jugs of ultra platinum from walmart.com with 2 day free shipping for 25 each. Regular platinum and the high mileage variation are 22.40 in store. Which is the better deal? Also ive used all 3 and the ultra platinum is darker meaning more additives?

Whatever is cheaper. Color doesn't tell you what is has more or less of.

It's a great oil if you don't need D1G2. I've got a shelf full of jugs of it.

Did you used to be on here under another name?
Something seems very familiar.
Maybe it's just me.

BING BING BING....We have a winner!!!


I sure made the mistake I ordered 2 of the Ultra think Pennzoil had their stuff together with gen 2 on the Ultra....WRONG!! I have a new 2018 Hyundai Kona Limited coming Monday Tuesday. and can't use it. So I bought Mobil 1 Extended 5w-30 for my break-in. The minute I get home I will dump the oil/filter that Hyundai has in it. Said to be semi-synthetic from my research, and add a Fram Ultra.

My after break-in will be either Amsoil 0w-30 SS or Mobil 1 5w-30 Extended with 1 Qt Redline 0w-40. I will be dumping at 800 miles on the first Mobil 1 Ext then 3,000 miles next run.

The Pennzoil Ultra will have to be left for the wife's Rav4.

It is currently overrun.

But the "darker means more additives" is a good one, gotta admit that.

You are doing yourself no favors by dumping the factory fill.
There is nothing wrong with the factory oil for a few thousand miles.
I'm sure you have your reasons, please respond if you don't mind.

Mania, that is a ridiculous break in plan. Seems like you won't break anything in except your wallet. Totally unnecessary, total overkill. Keep the FF in there at least 3,500 miles. I also don't agree with mixing in the Redline, keep it simple and just go with a major brand 5w30, synthetic of course. Good luck.

Think I agree? In all that is:
PP/PUP & Amsoil not OEM approved for the 2018 and does M1 have approvals ?
