I see a ton of people on BITOG raving about it for Ecoboosts.The Magnatec is apparently a very good oil. Some say even better than the Edge. It’s a pretty well known oil on the mustang forums.
I'm about due for a change. I don't put enough miles on any more to change it enough to justify the Ams PC fee. I've always used PP when I don't use Ams, but this statement has me wondering. Now that I only drive basically short trips (mile one way twice a day) if this oil starts out thin should I look elsewhere? I'm not willing to change the viscosity until I'm out of warranty.Pennzoil Platinum is actually a pretty solid oil because its derived from natural gas instead of oil, hence the Gas to liquids advertising.
The only negative I’ve really heard about it is that it tends to be pretty thin from the get-go. In other words the 5w-30 is on the light end of a 30 weight oil.
I guess this is a Shell only technology and don’t share it. Pennzoil, Quaker State, Rotella and a few other brands fall under the Shell name.
Quaker State Ultimate Durability gets a ton of recommendation on BITOG for Ecoboosts. I guess a lot of people have gotten really good oil analysis back specifically in Ecoboosts and its fairly inexpensive.I'm about due for a change.

I have heard the same thing. I would definitely go thicker on it, like maybe run the 40 instead of a 30 weight.According to this, Penzoil Platinum is very overhyped. It gets pretty thin and it’s additive package is alright. Almost seems like a downgrade from Motorcraft SB.
Here is Motorcraft SB which actually seems to be very nice oil. Especially for a SB.
Agreed, TBN was really the only thing that stood out. I would rather still have a thicker oil. Someone like me doing 3-4K intervals wouldn’t necessarily be worried about TBN. Who knows, I’m no expert lol.I have heard the same thing. I would definitely go thicker on it, like maybe run the 40 instead of a 30 weight.
PP does have a higher TBN though, which is what allows an oil to run longer before it needs to be replaced. As the oil ages and has to contend with the acids and whatever gets into it, the TBN will drop.
I believe MC SB is made by Phillips66.
I think I saw it at walmart yesterday and it was like $27, which is not terrible all things considered.Wow Mobil 1 EP High Mileage looks very impressive.
All I can say is oil has greatly improved over the years. At this point it’s who has the best price.
Have to check their rebates on the Mobil. Then it can be a lot cheaper.
Pretty much. And pretty much why I keep recommending Supertech Full-syn for people who don't feel like looking for coupons/rebates. Its an API SP and Dexos1 Gen2 rated oil, it has to be good to meet those standards and cost $16.This thread is going in circles and same things being said over and over ! You people are obsessed with oil !
WOW. JIMINY CRICKET !!!
JUST USE FULL SYNTHETIC AND CHANGE 5000 OR LESS !
Yes it is, and yes its cheaper by a couple of $.Isnt supertech made by Warren? Same as Amazon oil and Kirkland at costco. Last i check costco was by far cheaper than those other ones.
