Kendall GT-1 - How does it stack up?

Everyone loves Motorcraft synthetic blend on here. Well Kendall GT-1 is its big Full Synthetic brother. Yet not much is written about it. Since Motorcraft holds up well against YB Pennzoil, Q State, Valvoline etc. It seems reasonable that Conoco Phillips' Full synthetic can hold its own against Pennzoil Platinum, Q-Horse/Torquepower and other hydrocracked synthetics. Wouldn't you say?

Yes, yes I would! C-P makes good oils. BTW, there IS also a MC 'full synthetic' oil, which would be pretty well the same thing as GT-1 synthetic.

It stacks up best when packaged in cases. I supposed if you kept it straight you could stack them pretty high.
Lol. Actually I heard the cardboard that they make the cases with has a higher tear point when compared to Pennzoil Platinum. And I believe it.

It's like the unknown oil that might be great. Conoco Phillips needs to hire the monkees that Castrol used for the Super Bowl commercial. This oil on sale is almost half the price of EDGE so there is at least a chance of selling it.
