What exactly makes quaker state cheaper than pennzoil? Even other non shell brands cant compete with the price. Supertech and qs are priced very close.

Yes that's correct the big difference though is you can get a rebate on QSUD! But not on Supertech.

Where did they cut back on qs products to keep the price low?

In 2015/2016 when some of the newest QSUD was tested, it came out with as much moly, boron as the Pennzoils. Interesting that QSUD 5w-20 and 5w-30 tested out near the very top of all oils in 540Rat's methodology. While that doesn't mean a ton, it put the QSUD above the Pennzoil Platinum and on par with Mobil 1.
