      Comments about Pennzoil Platinum 5W-30 Full Synthetic Motor Oil (5 Plus Quarts Jug):

      okay Pennzoil makes some of the worst conventional oil you can buy, but don't let that make you prejudiced against them, this is great synthetic oil, possible better and definitely cheaper than mobil 1, just don't forget to get a high capacity bosch filter to handle the long duration period of synthetic oil changes.

        • 5-plus qt size

          Best Uses

            Comments about Pennzoil Platinum 5W-30 Full Synthetic Motor Oil (5 Plus Quarts Jug):

            This 5.1qt jug was just recently used in an oil change special. It's much easier to use just a single jug. The additional oil is appreciated as I sometimes use oversize filters.

            The dual handles help while dispensing the product
