    Comments about Pennzoil Platinum 5W-20 Full Synthetic Motor Oil (5 Quart):

    I change my Synthetic 5W-20 oil every 7,000 miles, and use a top quality oil filter (Bosch Distance Plus, Fram Ultra, or Mobile 1) to ensure cleaner, longer performing engine oil. This will ensure that my car's engine will out perform, have less mechanical issues, and save me more money in the long run.

      Comments about Pennzoil Platinum 5W-20 Full Synthetic Motor Oil (5 Quart):

      Bought a used 2003 ford escape and wanted to do the oil change on the car for the first time myself for the car since I wanted to have a better look under the car myself. I had a look at what ford is selling under their motorcraft oil and I saw that they are using synthetic oil for the 5w-20. I decided on using pennzoil for the first time since I had no clue as to what the previous owners did and I thought might as well go for the most bang for my buck and said might as well use pennzoil for it. going to see what the oil looks like once I change it in 3 months or 3,000 miles.

              This is considered to be the best stuff for my Mazda 3, so that's what I bought. I'm just switching to synthetic so I noticed a smoother acceleration, but I can't say that I wouldn't get that from any other synthetic.

                    I am a strong believer in synthetic oil as I started using it in rear ends that were creating metal shavings in the oil. Once I changed to synthetic rear end oil, the metal shavins went away. (This was in 15 diferent pieces of equipment). Also, I met an engineer from Chevrolet that was in-charge of finding ways to reduce our dependence on foreign oil by extending oikl change intervals. He told me that if I wqasn't using synthetic oil, I was throwing my money away. He claimed to have run an engine 100K, and then tore it down and could not measure any wear. After my erperience with the rear ends, I belived him and have been using synthetics ever since!

                    • Q:

                      My 2006 Mustang GT recommends 5w-20 synthetic-blend motor oil. I drive this car less than 3,000 mi. per year & when I do it is 80% highway mileage. If I switch to full synthetic oil will I gain any mpg? How often should I change the oil & filter under these conditions? I live in Jefferson, Georgia which normally does not see extreme changes in outdoor temperatures.

                        A:

                        No, switching to Synthetic motor oil from conventional oil will not gain any mpg, however you may gain something in engine efficiency. Most vehicle manufacturers recommend changing the oil once a year or every 7,500 miles in passenger car and light truck gasoline engines. For diesel engines and turbocharged gasoline engines, the usual recommendation is every 3,000 miles or six months. I would recommend that you change the Motor oil and Oil filter every 7,500 miles on your 2006 Ford Mustang.
