Wonder if Shell has a refinery in Russia or if Shell is just marketing this oil .

All these specifications pretty much go over my head .

It is a bit thicker than Pennzoil Ultra 5W30 from here but almost everything else is identical.

Maybe this explains the Pennzoil Platinum 5w-30 A3/B4 which doesn't exist in North America but for which there's a phantom data sheet. Someone told someone else to translate a fistful of sheets including what wasn't needed. wink

That Russian Shell helix is labeled as API SL...but the one made for EU is API SN...

So I highly doubt that Russian one is "the same as" yours Pennzoil Euro...

PP Euro 5w30 is SL...here (USA). But I see the viscosity specs are different..so probably not the same stuff

Yes, there's a listing for a Pennzoil 5w-30 A3/B4 in North America, but every level of SOPUS I've spoken to says it doesn't exist here, so one of the Euro Helix products that has no Pennzoil version.

5 ppm Fe seems pretty high for a VOA. Wonder if that is a mistake, or a function of raw materials in RU being different??
