The Pennzoil Gold is the first Synthetic Blend labeled oil i've seen with the approval.

Magnatech's PDS needs an update then, only specifies Gen1

Magnatech 5w30

Even the 0w20 still says Gen1

And Pennzoil Gold is still a complete enigma to the folks at PQIA...

Yes $5 to $7 dollars a Jug in most cases. That boils down to do 4 OCI's and one of them is free!

Same specs. After that, it's a matter of choice since everything else is marketing. I'm sure both oils get the job done just fine.

Not at the one near me. It was $20 per jug. ($19.88 to be exact)

I've never seen GTX Magnatec for lower than Pennzoil Gold. The Castrol is typically $20/jug and the Pennzoil $18. Not a deal breaker either way since they meet the same approvals.

I dont understand the point the of the gold synthetic blend Pennzoil. Like someone else said, you can find a fully synthetic Dexos for about the same price or $2 more. The Quaker State full synthetic is $20 (Dexos gen 2 on the label at my Wal-Mart). As is the Castrol Magnatec. SuperTech synthetic is Dexos as well, for $17 a jug.

Yeah at my Wally World there's only Valvoline Synpower with gen 2 status. Funny because Castrol Magnatec sells really well at my store but most of the others are slower. And by a decent margin.
I do think the price point is too high for the synthetic blends. $18 does not make a whole lot of sense when there's Castrol Magnatec right there just under $20. One thing strange is how Valvoline Maxlife Synthetic blend Dexos approved obviously is hardly anymore than the VWB.... Now that is just very strange indeed.
