Pennzoil emailed me a pdf file containing the Pennzoil Platinum Product Data Sheet. I remember a few BITOG members stating that they could not locate this on Pennzoil's site. Here it is, copied and pasted(I couldn't find a way to attach a pdf file on here): PENNZOIL Ò PLATINUMÔ FULL SYNTHETIC MOTOR OIL DESCRIPTION PennzoilÒ PlatinumÔ full synthetic engine oil with superior Active Cleansing Agents continuously attacks potential and stubborn deposits to help keep the engine clean. It also contains special protective additives for our superior engine protection that exceeds USA and European industry standards like ILSAC GF-5, API SN and ACEA performance. PennzoilÒ PlatinumÔ is designed to provide our superior cleansing under the most severe driving style or conditions to maximize engine responsiveness. FEATURES & BENIFITS • Superior Active Cleansing Agents. • Keeps pistons 40% cleaner than the toughest Industry Standards1 • Cleans out engine sludge better than our conventional and synthetic blend oils2 • Better for severe driving conditions than our conventional or synthetic blend oils3 • No other leading full synthetic oil provides better wear protection4 • Backed by the Pennzoil lubrication limited warranty. • Exceeds the most stringent car manufacturers requirements for cleanliness and protection5 – including GM dexos 1. 1 Based on ILSAC GF-5 and SEQ IIIG piston deposits using 5W-30. 2 Based on severe sludge clean up test using 5W-30. 3 Examples of severe driving conditions are stop-and-g driving, frequent short trips, extreme hot or cold temperatures, excessive ideal, driving with heavy loads, driving in dusty conditions. 4 Based on Sequence IVA wear test using 5W-30. 5Based on ILSAC GF-5, Ford, Chrysler and GM specifications. APPLICATIONS Applications include: SAE 0W-20 – Recommended in some hybrid vehicle applications and a limited number of low temperature applications and all vehicles calling for 0W-20 GF-5 motor oils. SAE 5W-20 – Many current and recent OEM recommendations including many 2001 and later Ford and Honda, and later Chrysler, Nissan and Toyota applications. SAE 5W-30 – Many of the remaining US and Japanese vehicle recommendations including General Motors, Suzuki, Subaru, Hyundai. SAE 10W-30 – Several specialty and truck applications for different manufacturers. This was the predominant grade of oil in the mid-1990s and is still recommended for some higher temperature applications. SAE 5W-50 – May be recommended for some performance and older vehicles and in some higher temperature applications. Always consult your owner's manual for the correct viscosity choice and specification grade of oil required. Viscosity recommendations often allow a range of viscosities based on local temperatures. SPECIFICATIONS & APPROVALS PennzoilÒ PlatinumÔ exceeds the requirements of the following industry specifications : • North American warranty requirements for U.S., European and Japanese cars and light trucks with gasoline and gasoline turbo-charged engines where API SN and earlier API categories are specified (all grades). • ILSAC GF-5 Resource Conserving performance standard (0W-20, 5W-20, 5W-30 & 10W-30). • Meets the most advanced emissions and fuel economy standards in the US gasoline powered engines. • Meets Chrysler MS 6395 (5W-20, 5W-30, 10W-30) • Meets Ford WSS M2C945-A (5W-20) and WSS-M2C946-A (5W-30) • Meets GM 6094M specification (SAE 5W-20, 5W-30 and SAE 10W-30) • Meets GM 4718M specification for Corvette and Cadillac (5W-30 and 10W-30). • Meets GM dexos 1 specification for all GM vehicles (5W-30). • Meets Acura HTO-06 for turbo-charged applications (5W-30) • Meets demanding ACEA requirements July 2010 TYPICAL PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES PENNZOIL® PLATINUMÔ FULL SYNTHETIC MOTOR OIL TEST METHOD TYPICAL RESULTS Viscosity Grade. 0W-20 5W-20 5W-30 10W-30 5W-50 API Service SN SN SN SN SN ILSAC GF-5 GF-5 GF-5 GF-5 - ACEA A1-02 A1-02 A1/B1-08 A1/B1-08* A3-02 Gravity, °API ASTM D-287 34.8 34.38 33.8 33.3 33.7 Specific Gravity @ 60°F(15.6°C) ASTM D-287 0.851 0.852 0.856 0.859 0.857 Viscosity @ 40°C, cSt ASTM D-445 42.6 46.84 57.5 63.4 106 @ 100°C, cSt ASTM D-445 8.39 8.48 10.3 10.5 17.8 Viscosity Index ASTM D-2270 175 160 169 154 186 Flash Point , °C ASTM D-93 224 224 224 224 224 Pour Point, °C ASTM D-97 -48 -45 -39 -33 -42 MRV viscosity, cP (°C) ASTD D-4684 17,500 (-40) 9,700 (-35) 14,800 (-35) 10,900 (-30) 24,000 (-35) CCS Viscosity, cP (°C ) ASTM D-5293 4840 (-35) 4,250 (-35) 5,150 (-35) 4,570 (-30) 4980 (-30) HT/HS Viscosity, cP ASTM D-4683 2.6 2.6 3.1 3.15 4.1 Noack Volatility, % ASTM D-5800 14 13.2 12.5 9.7 13.0 *Meets engine protection requirements.

Yes. We carry it as an oil distributor, but I have not seen it anywhere else.
