I'd go with the cheaper one, since there is no reliable data on which one will help me reach 200,000 miles. Every time we see any data presented others will detract from it and say it doesn't represent real life conditions. They are both good. Go with the deals.
If someone didn't tell you it now has PP in it you or the engine wont notice the difference. The mind on the other hand plays strange games though, you may or may not hear noises that were never there before, all sorts of stuff, you may get little visitors that only speak to you.
Get the Pennzoil Platinum
- My vehicle is older ('07 tC) and the Toyota 2AZ-FE is a lot smoother and quieter on PP oil. (I used to exclusively use Mobil 1 and the car has used it for 75% of its life since bought new)
- It's cheaper than Mobil 1 majority of the time.
- For a car that probably going to be just a daily driver then go for the cheaper of the two. (Other cheaper brands to consider as well)
Funny, with all the learning to be had on this board, Brand fanaticism still rules.
To the op, your engine cannot tell the difference between brands. Run the one you prefer or whatever is cheaper as long as it meets specs for your car.
With over 10,000 posts I thought you could come up with something better than this
Explain why? Prove to me that M1 is better or worse that pennzoil, Amsoil Castrol etc. I will be waiting . Facts please Marketing claims won't impress me.
My point is, this is a motor oil discussion forum. If you feel all oils are the same, then why are you even here and why have you made so many posts? You know this site is all about the discussion of all things oil, so if you're just going to say oil is oil, then that's not helping anyone at all.
