Are They All The Same Motor Oil? Let’s Settle This! Four Levels of Pennzoil Motor Oil Compared

Oil is a mystery to most folks, as we don’t really know what is inside the quart we pick up at the auto parts store, and don’t understand the additives that might make one different than another. It’s real science though and we’ve been in a couple of oil mixing and testing locations for oil producers and can tell you that there is a lot going on. With that said, you can’t tell any of this or understand any of it just by looking at the oil in the quart, or out, without a bunch of science. Or can you?

This video from Project Farm is going to take a look at 4 different Pennzoil oils to see if there is something different about each one.

Video Description:

Let’s find out if Pennzoil’s motor oil (Pennzoil Synthetic Blend, Pennzoil Full Synthetic, Pennzoil Platinum and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum) are basically the oil. All four oils tested sent to an independent oil lab for oil analysis. I tested oils for evaporative loss, lubricity or film strength, cold oil flow both new oil and after exposure to heat. Additionally, in a final test, Pennzoil Ultra Platinum is exposed to 10% gasoline and another sample is exposed to antifreeze to see the impact it has on lubricity or oil performance. I always buy all of the products tested to ensure unbiased test results.
