What is a “nice” SN 20 ? Just bought a jug of STP SN+ for $16 full price … and will use with BG109 in an attempt to calm 🤫 down a high mileage 2007 Chrysler 300 (flush/dump oil) … so, hope it’s just lifter rattle …

I didn’t say a nice SN 20. I like the fact this is a thinner 5w30 with a good add pack. Pretty simple.

Not a blanket statement. It’s too thin. It’s too expensive. It’s an endangered species.

It looks good. It appears PU will be sticking around for a while longer.

Looks like PUP's additive package has finally caught up with every other SN+ oils. Lower Ca, and boosted Mg. Elemental analysis is not that much different from regular Platinum now.

.. or any other SN+ oil.

Yep I think it will be around for the future as well; they would t have bothered making it SN+ if the plan wasn’t clear for at least a couple years...

Anybody want to bet on how long it will be before it has the d1G2 and B1 specs?

Email from Pennzoil

I can't speak to the d1g2 spec, but I did ask Pennzoil about the B1 spec and posted the reply in the thread linked above.

Here's my post from that thread.

The Pennzoil Ultra Platinum does not meet this Ford spec and at this time there is no communication stating it will be. Pennzoil Gold And Pennzoil Platinum 5w-30 currently meet and exceed this specification.

So despite the SN Plus rating, it doesn't (and won't) meet Ford's new specification they changed to when they switched to SN Plus... ??? duh

I don't think the viscosity is too much of a problem. It has its uses. I'd really love to see some HTHS numbers on it though. I'll be running it for 6K - 7K miles in my Gen2 3.5L Ecoboost. I'll post a UOA of that after the run. That won't be for some time though. At least 6 or 7 months from now. I'm only 1K miles into my current oil.

As for the price, I got it for $24 per jug at a local Walmart with free delivery. Not the cheapest out there for sure, but I certainly wouldn't call it unreasonable. We'll see though.

Thanks for the VOA. PUP appears to be an oil for suckers. Every way you slice it PP is just as good if not better due to it having d1g2 and Ford B1.

Sorry OP don’t mean to be harsh! I just don’t see the appeal/value.

I bought 2 jugs on clearance for 18.xx ea., that was my appeal. The Sportage currently has no complaints.

This is prob why the price is only 24-25 $ for a jug. They've lowered the Moly,etc
