The new Pennzoil Platinum API SP 5w-30 is actually a 5w-20. Its 100C viscosity is only 8.6. I wish I would have known that before doing an oil change and putting 6 quarts in my Colorado 3.6 V6 today.

It's summer, why not use 10W40?
You may get a thinner 10W40 then you will have a real W30 based on your logic.

Can you give us a link where you read that?

I just looked at the website. The 5w20 is listed also as 8.6. So it's definitely a misprint on the 5w30. All the sets of numbers for both the 5w20 and 5w30 are listed the same.

They will fix the website soon. Someone will report it quickly.

Even though I run 5w30 in a car calling for 5w20, doubt if I'd be dropping that if it's SP.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I feel better now knowing that it almost absolutely has to be a misprint.

Misprints on the spec sheet are classic Pennzoil

I would not dump it over a minor viscosity issue. Platinum is an awesome oil, and one time use of a slightly thinner oil won't hurt anything.

If you have to dump it, clean the drain pan good, catch it, rebottle, and save it for the winter.

It is an error in the data sheet. I put it in my calculator, and it resulted in a negative VII content.

>> Automated calculator for the A_Harman index, VII content, and base-oil viscosity <<

That said, for a given HTHS, you want the lowest KV100 for best wear protection because it will have the thickest base oil (HTFS = BO DV150 in my calculator) and least VII, which will make it the closest to a monograde.
