Was at the parts store and i noticed they still have pennzoil platinum that is just sn rated. I tried finding some voas for the sn version but couldnt find any. How much different is the add pack from the sn+

One oil change on one car will never know the difference.

SN+ is only important if you have a T-GDI engine susceptible to LSPI

The difference is mainly in the amounts of calcium and magnesium detergents. Calcium was reduced and magnesium was increased as testing showed that calcium above certain amounts could cause LSPI. As mentioned already that condition could occur in Turbo GDI motors.

for some time the PP SN+ was shipped with labels showing SN.. so it still might be SN+

Check the date code on the bottle... usually near or on bottom.

Ya know, that really wasn’t necessary. The guy is brand new (only 3 posts) and was asking a legitimate question.

Sometimes it’s better to not reply at all, capiche?

Some say SL is easier on seals ... Not all the new stuff may necessarily be good for all engines! They may target one issue to help/resolve and will mess up something else.

The oil companies couldn’t display the d1G2 approval until a specific date yet the oil could meet that spec. Check the bottle for the dexos license number. If it starts with a D then it’s d1G2.

Also if moly is added to a calcium or sodium detergent only motor oil it decreases LPSI events.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

That's kind of dumb seal capability is part of the API certification process.
