The 10W-30 PDS says nothing about either being conventional or a blend. With a pour point at -42C, I find it hard to believe that it's merely a Group I/II base...
Yeah I can't tell either. I figured this is the closest the op will find to the QSAD he likes to use that he can't find.The 10W-30 PDS says nothing about either being conventional or a blend. With a pour point at -42C, I find it hard to believe that it's merely a Group I/II base...
That's how BITOG works, or most any internet forum for that matter. You post a question and goes off on all tangents. No harm no fowl.The first post stated the person wanted Conventional oil PERIOD... Everyone tells him their opinion as to why he should get something thing else.
One reason not to post a question
You would have to cross the border into Mexico to get conventional oil, which is Group I dino solvent-refined mineral oil. They've got plenty of dino 25W-40 etc. there in the stores.If not answered already, I think you can still get true conventional motor oil at Napa, Tractor Supply and Rural King.
Happy happy, joy joy!
According to their site, all Pennzoil is either a synthetic blend or full synthetic now, regardless of viscosity grade. They still say "conventional" in the navigation menu, but that's probably for people like the OP who don't necessarily realize that anything meeting current API specs is going to be a minimum of a synthetic blend.
If everybody did this, there wouldn't be any high dollar boutique oils...Here let me show you the Bob is the oil guy creed.
I do not change my oil with conventional; he who changes his oil with conventional has forgotten the face of his father. I change with synthetic.
I do not change my oil when it turns dark; he who changes his oil when it turns dark has forgotten the face of his father. I change my oil using previously documented UOA’s and manufacturer recommendations (because the engineers know more than you).
I do not buy the best oil; he who buys the best oil has forgotten the face of his father. I buy the oil that meets specification.
