    New information on PZ Ultra composition

    Can someone detail to me the seemingly vast superiority of PAO over Shell's XHVI basestock? Other then something along the lines of "OMG CUZ IT'S FAKE SYNTHETIC" because I'm really curious.

    Which AMSOIL to use????

    Quote: Look at Red Line, esters galore and yet they still include an additive package loaded with anti wear goodies. Different esters, used for different reasons. Oh man.

    Any problem with mixing PP and YB? Blend ideas?

    Pennzoil does make a synth blend. The base stocks and additive packs of YB and PP are designed for those specific oils. You won't hurt anything, but you won't help anything, either.

    Considering Brad Penn 0W-30 for the winter.

    Pulled the trigger on a case. Going to run a shorter OCI now and then extend it through the winter. If I see any severe change in performance good or bad, I'll post it.
