My 5 quart jug of Pennzoil Platinum says "...no leading synthetic motor oil provides better wear protection**" then under the ** (two stars) it says "as measured ... using SAE 5W-50" I have never seen 5W-50 Pennzoil. Why claim your 5W-50 is better than "leading synthetic" oils when the oil they used does not exist in the general supply chain. It's a useless claim. I thought Mobil-1 5w-50 was some hot stuff according to some UOA on race motors.

there were tons of PP 5W50 in Canada when i chose to pick up the M1 5W50 instead. I don't know why we've tons of them here when they can sell them easily in the States.
