I asked them about this a few months back. Essentially they are very close as both use GTL base oils. I can't confirm this but I believe the Pennzoil line has better cleaning ability and high temperature protection. They differentiate these two lines by emphasizing wear protection for QS and cleanliness with PP (although both do both lol).

Rotella has historically been aimed at the truck market.

And whenever I check for oil advice here, I always remind myself that Canadian trolls that joined this month are probably a reincarnie. With small hands.

All are great products and I buy on price. Out of the three you could buy on the color of the bottle and the actual performance of products are nearly identical.


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

I’ve posted this sheet several times and it might be a bit old. They’re all SOPUS products and the data is from posted VOAs from this site. Enjoy.
