1hr, but how many miles? lol. It was real cheap i remember last time I was there. It is a box of two 5 quart jugs. I saw good review on Bob.

Thing is, still got to get a filter somewhere else.

Before my trip to Flagstaff last weekend, I did an oil change with PP 5W-30 just for the heck of it since I had some on my shelf.

Well I decided to do another oil change this morning. The oil coming out was stupid thin. Bit concerning since it barely has 2K miles on it. Strictly highway. I really don’t see the hype on it? I personally think it’s an overrated oil.

I agree. I’m a long time Pennzoil user but the last couple of times I used it the valve train rattle was a tad scary. I switched to Kendall GT1 full synthetic and then valvoline. Mover any more rattle.

How do you know without testing?

Amsoil 5-30 is money in everything and I have proven with testing, even running 8k DD and performance, it still tests fantastic!

I have no factual evidence at all proving that the oil is doing it’s job or not. But after so many oil changes using a variety of brands, it’s by far the thinnest of the bunch. Even according to Shell the oil is on the light end of a 5w-30.

Might be good for a run down the 1/4 mile.

Picked up 6 quarts of Valvoline EP from Walmart for $33.94. Sources online show specs being a bit thicker than the standard Advanced Full Synthetic.
