decided to try this. hoping i get the oil soon approaching first oil change soon. probably going to sound like a dump question but i have never done an oil test on anything before... what exactly does the oil test tell you?

also, my main concern with pennzoil is sludge, I've heard rumors from lots of people, mostly older generations from 25 years ago... that pennzoil caused sludge and this or that etc. will an oil test tell you the quality of the oil say after 5-6k when you change it to know if theres any risk of sludge?

does anyone know how long this pure plus oil from natural gas has been around?

I can't say how long it has been around in engine oil, I don't think it has been that long but I could be wrong. Maybe longer in some different engine types like airplanes or something. I think these Penzoils are the first otc to use it as a base, but that is just a guess. Think about it, why to go to that effort when oil just comes from the ground? Most companies would just hydrocrack it then toss some calcium and stuff and call it a day. It is puzzling why Penzoil did this, but it is to the users benefit. Super clean base oil, and if you have any concerns I would let those go, it is the best stuff around next to the Esters.

As far as any oil causing sludge, that is very rare. Most sludge is a result of running oil too long, poor pcv, poor engine design, poor oil flow, hot spots. I have nothing to gain by saying so, I don't use Penzoil at the moment, but they make the best otc products right now. All of the oil guys first choice is Penzoil. It has been polled many times and Penzoil comes out on top with guys who are in the muck with their oil, like me. Interesting for some reason Valvoline is usually second, my guess is second would be M1. Ok I'm ramblling.
R.L.K. and hawk like this.

So I looked up the process, it is actually easier to use GTL then to filter and crack it. But regardless, it is a very clean base and is easier to get to 20 weight then ground oil, it is thinner by nature.

I'm running it now and offered Gena a UOA as a testimonial if you will of how it works in a Hemi. I was told this program is only for new users looking to switch. Too bad, as it's cheap advertising for them for a satisfied customer to take the time to say how well a product works.

Sorry Nutshell: Here was her response from my message I sent her...

Hi Lonnie - Thank you for following up. Unfortunately, we are only reaching out to members of the BITOG community at this time. To clarify, we are looking for people who are not currently using Pennzoil, so they have the opportunity to compare Pennzoil Synthetics against our competitors. If members of the Ram Forum would like to participate, they can reach out to us on BITOG as several have done already. Thank you again for spreading the word, sharing your experience with us, and participating in the program! Best, Gena

For those who ARE interested... Visit BITOG and message her... Make sure to stress you are not currently using Pennzoil...

Pretty ignorant to not go after Rams seeing the partnership with Chrysler and Penzoil. If they tossed a couple cases our way it would have went miles. If I was running there PR, I would make the offer to say 5 members from every different site. It would get a lot more mileage, because BITOG already knows the value of Penzoil, lol. Anyhow, regardless of Penzoil not reaching out to us, the stuff is still on top of the heap as far as the OTC stuff. BTW, Redline aint reaching out either, this forum is ripe for the taking if any oil companies are watching. Hopefully it would be Redline, Motul, Amsoil or Penzoil, but I aint gonna beg.
