Pennzoil Ultra Platinum cleans 65 percent better not 25 percent as in your post.
Your 4th post in >2 years and it's an advert followed by an attempted correction that doesn't even get that right. Bravo. It says it KEEPS pistons UP TO 65% cleaner than the industry standard. So no, it doesn't clean 65% better, that's not what the advert claims.

What the up-to means is reduction allowances for those that beat the crappola out of their engines - for those that abuse their engines extending OCIs too long. We are not supposed to drive like the 82 year-old grandmother. But not like 30 year-old Mario Andretti either. Happy New Year OVERKILL.

It simply means "up to"; it means exactly what it says, that in standardized testing, the results (of that testing) were up to 65% better than required to pass, that's it. I'm not sure how you've managed to derive whatever that word salad you've delivered is claiming when the verbiage is quite clear, but others appear to be having issues as well so.... shrug LOL Happy New Year as well.

Up-to means "as-far-as" also. Both determinations engulf the whole arena of drivers today, as-in standardized. We-all maintain different standards under the hood. We all drive different standards. Some law-abiding / some not. Even this one OVERKILL..... We-all (SOPUS) change our recipes when needed, but maintain the standards required. That's why recipes change daily and ''up-to'' / ''as-far-as" changes daily too.

You are grossly over-thinking the statement and reading into it something that is clearly not there. It reads:

Which simply means that in their testing against the industry standard that the results were up to 65% cleaner than required. That's it.

So correct me if I'm wrong. PP10-30= a thin oil? Would such an oil be safe for Ohio winters in a 5-30 application?

It would be OK. I think, personally, I'd go with a 5W or 0W up there. What vehicle?

I agree. You can't put to much stock into a jug of 10-30 PP and a jug of mobil1, 5-30 AP in the back of my f250 all day in freezing temps. But I just went out and shook the jugs and the PP is definitely less viscous.

The response to this should be interesting. You should do a You Tube video.

I put the Ultra Platinum in my wife's 2013 Equinox back at the end of October and less than three months later and around 2500 miles and I had to add a quart of oil to it. First time using the Ultra Platinum and that was the first time I've had to add oil between changes with that car. I've been using the Platinum in my 2015 Suburban the past few changes and never had that issue.

That engine is a notorious oil user. Probably just a coincidence that it started with the Ultra. How many accumulated miles are on it?

I have experienced the same situation with 5W-20 Pennzoil Platinum. It was fine in my wife's 2016 Jeep Latitude. In my car, a 2008 Honda CR-V with 220,000 miles, there was quite a bit of consumption; 1.5 qts over a 4,500 OCI. I have since used Mobil 1, Castrol Edge and current fill of Quaker State Ultimate Durability and consumption is slightly less than 1/2 quart per 4500 OCI with all of those. I always assumed it might have something to do with Pennzoil's GTL formulation but that is just a guess. I would say to try a different oil at next change and see if your consumption improves.
