quote:You don't know what you are talking about. This is absolutely FALSE. Johnny, who works for Pennzoil and posts here has clearly stated that Penn and QS are two different oils. They are not even blended at the same plants, and the base oils are different and from different sources.
Originally posted by SpitIX: Pennzoil and Quaker State oils in the same viscosities are identical. That is, the refinery packages the same oil in two different colored bottles.

As long as Shell continues to operate Pennzoil as a separate oil company, you can bet that Pennzoil oil will be something different from QS and Shell oils.
Originally posted by csp203: I would pick pennzoil now, but in the future they will most likley be the same (ie chevron/havoline). Remember Shell or any oil company is about making money. I would guess with SM/GF coming up they are not going to develop 4 different oils (shell,quaker state, pens, wolfs head). What ever it costs to create a oil, and multiply that by 4, shareholders no like! I don't work for shell and any oil company, but I would imagine they (shell, pens, Quaker) ATLEAST will begin to share more, and in the end be very close to each other. Quaker and pens on the high end, shell and wolfs head on the low end.

Divided by 3k miles = $.0002/mile, or twenty cents per thousand miles. Gonna have to give this one careful consideration! Or dig in the couch for that lost change.
