Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 5W-30 Full Synthetic Motor Oil
  • I used this oil on 2015 WRX Limited for over 30k miles 6 oil changes total. Great oil.
  • The only thing noticeable is that the inside of my engine is clean when I removed the valve cover after using this oil for the past several oil changes.
  • Put in my Infiniti G37. The engine felt really smooth and quiet. Got the Pennzoil rebate as well. Highly recommend!
  • Love it. Best oil around. I feel confident that my engine is running on top tier stuff. I stopped going to the mechanics for oil changes, simply because I dont know if they really are using the good stuff and I'm just getting uncharged like an idiot.
  • This is great oil and will serve many owners well. Unfortunately, I have found it is not Dexos1 2nd gen certified or licensed. It contains too much calcium as part of the pureplus tech and thus exceeds the maximum allowable in the spec and thus fails the SPI/LSPI test.
Mobil 1 Extended Performance 5W-30 Advanced full synthetic formula
  • This is definitely my "go to" oil. My car has been on Mobil 1's synthetic oil since its first oil change.
  • This oil is super slick - you can immediately notice the smooth engine sound difference.
  • Best oil I've ever used. I used to change this out every 7k to 10k miles. But as I started noticing the oil I was pouring out still felt, looked and smelled great. I've allowed myself to go longer distances between changes.
  • Not sure I'll ever do 15,000 miles between oil changes, just too old school for those kind of intervals but I will let this stay in the car for 7-8K miles without worry.
  • Found the Mobil 1 5w30 noisy in my 2010 4.0 mountaineer. Ran for 300 miles engine was still noisy. Drained out and replaced with Quaker state ultimate durability 5w30 and engine was dead quite. Not imagery noisy was real.

What customers say about "Features"
Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 5W-30 Full Synthetic Motor Oil
  • Probably the only oil i use in my aging 2008 Nissan Altima 3.5L. Keeps the engine running smoothly. This oil is becoming harder and harder to come by. My local Wally World no longer carries it, so i am glad amazon carries it at one hell of a price.
  • Been using this in my 2015 Nissan Titan since 5000 miles now I am at 26,000 PUP 5w30. Engine running well, oil always looks like still has 5000 left when air change it but under warranty.
  • Using this oil in a 3.5 twin turbo F150. Only drive it about 5K miles a year with half of that towing. Because of the mileage driven I only change the oil once a year. Oil never leaves the top of the dipstick. IMO this is the best oil on the market.
  • Been using Pennz Platinum/Platinum Plus for years and it's a great oil. Can easily handle the 8k-10k OCI I do on the 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser and other vehicles I've owned and use it on.
  • Use this in a Nissan Sentra Se-R Spec V and it does very well in the hot desert.

  • The oil filter on my Tacoma allows for a pretty clean filter swap, so if I take a long 4x4 trip, I'll always replace the filter a couple days after. But it's not likely necessary for the average vehicle. Great Stuff
  • I have been using this oil since I bougth my Toyota Tacoma 2006 and changing oil as suggested every 15 thou miles or before,of course I order premium oil filter as well.
  • I've been using this in my cars for years, and changing the oil every 10,000 miles, and it seems to work very well. My current vehicle, a 2008 Toyota Sienna has 232,000 miles on it, and doesn't burn a drop of oil.
  • 3000 miles oil dark black and thin, get cheaper middle range product just as good.
  • Not good as it was, this oil evaporate, almost 2 quarts missing on my oil change ( 30,000 good condition car).
