Amazon updated the images for Pennzoil ultra 0w-20 SP GF-6A with a “carbon neutral” marketing line in green.

The listing still states SN so not sure which version you’ll obtain for 24.97 without S&S which bumps down to 21.xx [Linked Image]

What does Carbon Neutral mean? Is there such a thing as non-harmful soot inside my engine - or inside my exhaust system? I demand Carbon Evaporation instead.
Now where's this Race Pennzoil speaks of? Who races legally on our highways and city streets?

I wonder if "carbon neutral" pertains to the processing the oil from crude.

Yes, it does, but I wish it meant “infinite MPGs” when using it. Perpetual motion motor oil!

I have yet to see UP in a Walmart, O’Reilly, or other store. Is there some sort of shortage?

That’s nothing new, ExxonMobil has stated something similar on their products for a long time. It is just an educational statement for a typical Walmart or Autozone shopper who might walk up and think an oil with a 0W winter rating is thinner or a “0 weight” oil.

I've never used PUP but it used to be available at Walmart a long time ago but then it stopped appearing on the shelves, today even PP is getting harder to find there, they did have 1 jug of PP HM 5w30 but that grade wasn't available in the regular version. I haven't been to Walmart in sometime because honestly I hate going there and when I do it's usually to purchase oil because no one can compete with their prices, the last time I checked the shelves there were a lot of empty spaces as they were in the process of rearranging that I've read on here. I don't know if it's just that PP 5w30 is so popular or if they just are not keeping it in stock but the price for PP had skyrocketed... and now I just look at their website and it has come back down again and the price is now in line with what it used to cost so go figure.

Hopefully in the process it streamlines the product line! Look forward to hearing about it!

When can we expect the info? I’m in the process of looking to find an oil, and just stick with it. Would be curious about this “new” innovation.

Per the back of the bottle, carbon neutral means Pennzoil is offsetting the carbon emissions related to the lifecycle of the product with "Nature Based Carbon Credits". Per Shell's website, "Nature-based solutions, or natural climate solutions, are projects which protect, transform or restore land. In this way, nature absorbs more CO2 emissions from the atmosphere." An example would be a forestry project / reforestation

Maybe that jargon means the fuel savings from an engine running "SP" formulation 0W-20 offset the hydrocarbons used in the oil??

What I find interesting, is this oil is nowhere to be found. I went to another auto store today, and all there was is normal platinum.
