quote:Next time your in Walmart, Check out the Syntec Blend 5 qt jugs... They are $10.77! For the extra 80 cents (used to be 55 cents) I went with the Blend. The last time I bought Castrol GTX in 5 qt jugs (about 2 months ago) it was $6.97. Prices are going to keep going up sadly... Take care, Bill
Originally posted by KJA426: I was just at Wal Mart and noticed that even though they are priced nearly the same by quart, the Castrol five-quart jugs are $9.97 while the Pennzoil is $6.97. Isn't that a little strange?
quote:The $6.97 for a 5 qt jug of Pennzoil is the normal price for at least 6 months here in Utah. There is no close out of "old" SM stock... Every jug I've looked at is SM. Where did you hear that Pennzoil is changing? Johnny? Take care, Bill
Originally posted by Triple_Se7en: Pennzoil has been making changes to their oils because the new synthetric (Platinum) is now full synthetic group IV. So in order to produce a syn-blend with it, they must be changing/tweaking their dino oils formulations. As a result, all old stock is being moved & on sale where it's overstocked.
quote:Sounds cool! Anyone know why they chose something like this for their oil? Better than group III? Cheaper than PAO? Cheaper the Group III? Did I miss that discussion?
Pennzoil Platinum is Ethylene Olefin Copolymer, which is classified as Grp V Other. It is not Grp IV PAO.
