#2306295 - 07/04/11 10:49 PM Q.S. Ultimate Durability VS Pennzoil Platinum

I am considering using Quaker State Ultimate Durability in my 1996 Toyota Tacoma 2.4L on my next run. Is there any measurable difference or benefit to Pennzoil Platinum over the Quaker State? Are the additive packs the same and just paying more for the Pennzoil name? Is there any difference in the conventional oil versions as well?

Though owned by the same company, they are separate divisions with their own products. They are similar in quality, with Pennzoil considered a notch above QS.

I like PP, but in my cars, QSUD just runs smoother in them...


My vote goes to QSUD.

In the 5W30 PP has Honda's certification of HTO-06 which makes it more high temperature stable for turbo operation.

Which the does nothing for the Toyota 4 cyl that the OP is asking about.

To the OP: Personally any(conventional or syn) of the QS/Pennzoil offerings will protect your Toyota just as well as the other for the 5k or 6 months that is the recommended OCI.

Take care, Bill

I switched about a year ago from PP to QSUD and I haven't noticed any difference except paying about $5 less per oil change....

I was planning on QSUD when I went to WalMart today for oil. But they were out of 5w30. So I went for Rotella T6 5w40...also sold out. PYB 5w30? Sold out. QS conventional? In stock. PP? In stock. Never ran the PP before so I went with that for a change of pace.

I'll probably go back to PP if it gets too close in price..

Go with the QSUD. It is basically the same stuff, just a better deal.

I've been using PP in my vehicles for about four years. But I took a look at the specs for both oils.

Pennzoil Platinum

Quaker State Ultimate Durability

In my flavor of 5W-30, the QSUD, seemed in my opinion, to have slightly better specs. In reality they were negligible, but with QSUD being the better bargain, my 2011 Silverado just got it's first oil change with QSUD last week.
