Wonderful series and perhaps, good enough starting point?

Both are too expensive for my needs but an interesting video none the less.

Notice how this tester found that Walmart & Amazon were just as good as Mobil 1? Interesting.

Pennzoil Ultra for the win considering you can get it for $25 for a 5qt jug! Loved watching this series!

iirc, i have seen some questionable videos from that guy ... meaning that they are not a real scientific tests. I think they are just for fun kind of videos. Don't take it super serious. I mean the test and not talking about the oil.

What is on YouTube is not laboratory testing.

I agree...

And this is all junk... A dumb timken type test which means nothing..... then a dumb pour test which means nothing either... Nothing.

Fun to watch... Ok.. I can buy that...


Valid... No. It's garbage.

It's not ENTIRELY "un-scientific"

It holds a fair amount of entertainment value.

He tries to be much more objective than Scotty Kilmer by a million miles

I can't watch Scotty, he makes me dizzy - he bounces around too much. He either has balance issues or a drinking problem.🤔😂

There are numerous posts about his videos on here. Nothing has changed since the last 20 times, they are still worthless.

More posts about stuff that has already been hashed to death.

The guy does this to make money from hits on his YOUTUBE channel..

LOTS of money. 400-500 dollars a day. Just like Kilmer. May take in more cash with silly online videos baiting than through their professional job.

I called him (Pf) out a few times and he put a "disclaimer" about the test not being valid.

Evolved into the same old worthless parlour tricks huckster from a century ago.

But, assuredly mildly entertaining for the first couple of watches.

Yes guys, if you are a huckster, the populace is well primed and un-primered for your game.

I see ( the video) so I believe!

I have a hard time comprehending the lack of education "out there".

I hear pert plus shampoo does really good in the timken test.

Maybe I should use that in my turbo gdi engine instead of D1G2.
