I`m still on Windows 98 and I can`t open too many websites anymore. can someone tell me the pour point for PP 5w30 is? I know 10w30 pour point is -34f. Help would be VERY appreciated.

And I will be getting a new computer soon with window 7, I`m thinking a Toshiba laptop.

I read recently where Asus and Toshiba made the most reliable laptops (and laptops are more durable than netbooks).

The one thing that I thought was strange is the pour point for PP 5w30 is the same as PYB 5w30 (-39C).

Good catch all Johnny, if he had not stated what the reason he needed the information every tom dick, and harry would chime in telling him to look it up, etc etc, and he explains the reason he asked due to inadequate computer technology then well... good job Johnny Mobil 1

I am a very big fan of Pennzoil products but....if I was doing 5K OCI's or less I would use PYB (over PP) and save some $$$$$$. The only reason to use PP in most applications is to extend OCI's to 7 or 8K IMO. In other words PYB is EXCELLENT in its own right.

I just put it in the Equinox tonight. We will see how it does. I had been running M1 since 3000 miles. Everyone says good things about on here so I am going to try it.
