Well I used it in my old Toyota Carolla got some 5w-20 on sale with a rebate it ran just fine and the final cost with the rebate was $4 a Jug. I'd use it again for $4 a Jug.I believe Pennzoil is excellent oil. But I have frankly rarely used it.
Please only comment if you personally use or have used Pennzoil Platinum full synthetic in the last few years, and your personal observations and results. I will probably end up with most of this to use myself, and want to feel confident in using it.
The reason I ask is that I have a relatively large stash of 5w20, 5w30, and 0w40 (from a large oil purchase, thousands of quarts among many brands) and I have been selling all/any of my oil off. My observation is that nobody, and I mean nobody, wants to buy Pennzoil. Some actually refuse it. It's remarkable, really. Mobil1 is the overwhelmingly demanded oil; next is Valvoline, then Castrol... few are interested in Quaker State (a SOPUS product) and nobody wants Pennzoil. Odd, really.
So what are your RECENT Platinum FS experiences good or bad?
Well you must have a secret I'm only 1 for 3 on Pennzoil rebates.I have used 5W30 for about 10 years, and always have gotten rebates. I also will get M1 when there is a rebate. Nothing wrong with it. There was one time when there was a code on the caps for the rebate, and I got opened oil which I returned. People in the supply chain stole the codes. M1 has a foil seal, but PP does not.
I've noticed rebates are very fast these days, like IRS tax refunds. It's all electronic. The only catch? The $25 was in the form of an e gift card. So I took 2 amazon gift card codes, which to me is like cash since I am an amazon customer. Took like 9 days total since submission. In my entire life, even when rebates were by US mail? I've only not gotten 1--from Compaq Computer, remember them? I filed a complaint with consumer affairs in TX, who said we don't handle that.Well you must have a secret I'm only 1 for 3 on Pennzoil rebates.
Pennzoil isn’t my first or second choice and I’m not sure why because it’s perfectly good oil. I think it’s because when I think of Pennzoil I am reminded of Jiffy Lube and a bad experience I had with them years ago. Or maybe it’s the color of the bottle, yellow is my least favorite color.
However, I couldn’t resist a recent “sale” at Walmart and I picked up 6 jugs of PP for a couple bucks each. I just used one in my 2019 Kia Soul and so far so good.
