yesterday, for the 1st time in my local walmart, I saw Pennzoil syn/blend 15w/40 oil($2.39 per qt) ...and it is SJ rated, I wonder why...?? (even the pennz 20w/50 dino and LongLife 15/40 are SL rated.) the syn/blend 15/40 has a thickness of 16 [email protected], and pour point of -17F... is this good/regular/bad? has anyone used this oil in their cars? any additional info? 2nd: I just saw on Pennz. website about the Synthetic European Formula 5w/40 oil...is this oil availble at all in US? I've never seen it anywhere. sound good on paper: [email protected], and pp of -33F(-37c) Does anybody know how one can find this oil? thanks for comments/info/opinions etc.

There are a bunch of 5w40's not found on shelves. Since I don't use it, I haven't asked any auto part store managers if they can order it. It might be a good weight for some people. You could also check the yellow pages for oil distributors and see if they stock it. No comment on 15w40. Too cold around here to use it. I don't have any oil consumption issues with the thinner oils so far.
