I would lean PP just because I don't want to get on the M1 bandwagon.

I have this same question. I have a new Subaru Forester non Turbo. I changed with Mag1 0w20 the first time at 3k, but am contemplating PP or Quaker state.

Valvoline is my favorite and have a stash of 30 quarts of 5w30 synpower that I got for $2.99, but I haven't seen any deals on it lately to get some 0w20. I have a hard time paying more than $4 a quart for oil.

The 0w-20 weight and viscosity oils DO NOT BURN A DROP! How shear stable is this oil and better than the 30 weights.

I have used both in my Tundra and honestly can't tell a difference between them. I buy them both when they are on sale and have rebates going on. Just got the Pennzoil rebate back, now waiting on the M1 rebate to come in.
