i would sell this if i could find a distributor...pennzoil is great stuff

*edit* I checked the folks who distribute shell, they dont bring pennzoil. They never got permission from Shell to bring it. Shell owns pennzoil btw.

Mobil 1 used to be real synthetic years ago. They aren't anymore but loyal or uninformed customers still buy it. There are many users who don't need a better high performance true synthetic oil and this works well for them though.

I say just as the oil body is graded the word synthetic should be graded too.

Currently I use Amsoil 20w50 in a Toyota GTE JZ engine.

400k doesn't make a diff if engine was cared for. I would try 15/40 and see if it burns and then move up from there. I have a client who has an nze with over 500k and uses 10/30 with no burn off and changes every 10k km.

Those 'things' are the viscosity ratings of the motor oil. How fast an oil can flow. The higher the numbers, the thicker the oil and slower the flow.

34 yrs lol
That would be a 20/50. Tolerances in that engine won't be tight as a modern engine unless rebuilt as such.
