Anyone use Parts Plus synthetic motor oil? 5w20?

Its manufactured by Ashland. I know these guys make the Valvoline products.

I'd guess it's the same as NAPA synthetic...which is a slightly watered down Synpower according to some on here.

Thanks I am just checking. I can get it for around 3.00 a qt. at my local supplier. Retail is around 4.00 a qt. I am comparing this to the motorcraft.

I am getting curious about the Pennzoil synthetics now with the new gf5 ratings.

At $3.00 a quart you can't go wrong.
I wouldn't extend my OCI beyond 7500 miles with any oil but I'm sure this oil is good for that distance.
