Expert Review

Pennzoil conventional oil in the yellow bottle is extremely cheap and easy to find in most major retailers. As one of the most popular conventional oils on the market, this oil is a safe bet. It has a strong additive package which is resistant to sludge, maintains performance, and also holds up well in used oil analysis reports. As with any conventional oil, it’s important to stick to regular oil changes every 3,000-5,000 miles. For the money, you can't go wrong with Pennzoil's Conventional oil.Rating: 5/5

BAWHAAA..HAAA...This is the Only way the yellow Bottle would make the list, It's B.S...I DONT Know a single engine builder or anyone in the Race circle that will touch Pennzoil....I had an engine installed in my 09 Ram 1500/ getting ready to do the 500 mile oil change to keep up on the warranty...I called the installer of the business and asked what brand and weight he wants me to run?. His answer was anything but Pennzoil, and a 10w-30,due to we like in so Cal, and its been Real hot, and 5w-20 will be like water. To do this will void my 6yr warranty. I bought 10w-30 Napa which is(Valvoline) the Best oil on the market! I Have a 67 GTO, Only Valvoline VR-1 20W-50 Racing oil, Or Lucas classic car 20W-50 goes into it.....Both oils are conventional oils due to my cam (lifters) is a solid. Both solid and Hydraulic lifter cams can only run conventional as long as they have high Zinc(ZDDP) Or your cam lobes will go flat. You Can Not run synthetic oil with these cams, due to it's too slick, and the lifter can't spin in the lifter bore making the cam lobe hit the same spot over and over wearing it down. Now if you have a Roller(lifter) cam, anything goes, but most will run the good stuff, minus Pennzoil. I'm not great at typing, so what I was trying to say and type are two different things. If I was talking to you in person, then you would drain out that crap oil and go in a different direction. All the real good Pontiac engine builders stay away from the Yellow bottle. Most good Mopar engine builders do not use Pennzoil....You guys get your pay checks from Pennzoil, but should secretly switch to Valvoline.. don't worry we won't tell sorry about the typos and spelling

Ironic to see PZ listed as a "best" product, when it is in fact that. It's the pet oil of guys who actually know something about it. I see the trolls are out in force for the first two posts. Too bad there isn't such a thing as a bad oil, except maybe PittPenn! Search PQI oil test for some basic data on a lot of brands. AJbtw- google bitog to read along with the best of experts.
