    I'm planning on using this for my next oil change.
    Always great results using Pennzoil.
    Made from Natural Gas--Probably the best you can buy.
    And Cheap at Wal Mart , 25 bucks.

    I've used all different brands of oil and
    have had zero problems.
    I change my oil 3 to 5,000 miles.
    I want my oil to be pretty CLEAN.
    I want my engine clean inside but I
    have an IVTEC and clean oil is
    important for proper lubrication and operation.

    That's funny. What the hell does it mean? How do they make a liquid out of a gas, especially one that comes out of a cows butt? Do they actually start out with a base stock of cow diarrhea?


    edit... I do realize that there are more ways to mine natural gas other than using a cows digestive system, It is still funny to me though. I think I would rather stick to some oil that doesn't brag about being made out of natural gas, unless someone can shed some light on why that's such a great thing.

    Pennz Plat/Ultra Plat has been proven to be a fantastic synthetic oil. It's all I've used on vehicles for the past 4-5 years.

    Meh; while there are endless arguments about it over on the BobIsTheOilGuy forums, if you change it on-time, and don't get some dusty crap off the bottom shelf of Billy-Bob's Cheap Gas, it really doesn't make much difference. I go to to Wal-Mart and buy the cheapest stuff in the appropriate grade. The house-brand over at W-M, "SuperTech" is actually fairly well-regarded by "oil enthusiasts". It's made by a company (Warren Distribution) that is responsible for most "house-brand" oils at large chains. (AAP/Carquest, O'Reilly, even Amazon)

    I will buy a name-brand if there's a good rebate out there (there are commonly $10-$12 / jug rebates available on name-brand oils.)

    Meh i go to the gas station and dip into their recycling bin and use a worn tee shirt......


    Yes Wallyworld is a great place to go and because they are bigger then a Mom & Pop store why the oil is offered a little less then others. Get whatever Brand that your heart desires... Coffee time

    Here we go, again. https://www.crvownersclub.com/forums...pic-humor.html





    I use Ultra Platinum in one of our other cars because it meets the manufacturers specs for that car (look at the fine print on the back). Those specs pre-dated the SN+ designation.

    If you would have read my post you would have clearly seen that I do understand what natural gas is. Natural gas = CH4, also know as Methane, also known as the main component that comes out of cows butts when they fart. It is a huge contributor to global warming (if you believe in that sort of thing), and also a wonderful thing to make synthetic engine oil out of, apparently.
