I don't think it necessarily people hating Pennzoil, some just don't prefer a particular brand. Many years ago, my Dad bought a couple of cases of 30w Quaker State for about 50 cents a quart. Times were hard, and he was looking to save money any way he could. Living on a farm, we had a lot of stuff to change oil in. Three engines fouled plugs very shortly after putting this oil in. We changed and cleaned plugs and put Gulfpride Multi-G back in, and no more problems. Read somewhere after that where lots of folks had complaints about some grades of QS oil then. Do I think Quaker State markets inferior oil today? no, I'm sure their oil is just as good as any one elses. Do I buy Quaker State oil? no, I haven't bought any in over 30 years. Even after all of that time, I just buy another brand.
