Wow, talk about lighting up an old tread!
I just used this tread to 'change my last pic'...
I've been using Penrite for years with nill problems..
Can't give Valvoline away here either!
Treat em mean and keep em clean!

|vht||Last 2 race engines I had I ran Brad Penn with no problems. I've worked on cars for yrs, and I've never seen any sludge build up with Pennzoil. I have seen it with Valvoline. You can't give Valvaline away around here. If you put alot of road miles on any engine it will stay pretty clean inside, short trips, in town etc, where the engine doesn't warm up good, you'll have sludge.|

|classic_chevy_guy||well all i hear from people that use it is that it comes out in clumps ( thats why i compared it to candles and soap, you know a joke, ha ha ha ), and depending on climate and whatever area you live in i imagine there are different outcomes. we live in north texas, and we probably only sell about a quart of that a month because people come back wondering what the deal is. But again thats hear in north texas, dunno about where you are.|

We realize though that when Appalachian basin crude (which some refer to as Pennsylvania crude) goes through the intial stage of refining the pariffin is removed from the wax distillate component of the crude. This refining split leaves what is called a "neutral", or a lubricating component. The lubricating component is then further distilled and cracked to produce engine oil, grease and gear lubes, depending on the additive packages. The paraffin and wax is stripped out in the refining process. So, it would be hard to make candles out of it.
Appalachian basin crude is still highly desirable for a base stock.
Lots of cars over lots of years have used this base stock engine oil with no issues.

if this thread sucks then stay out of it, apparently all of us others have something to talk about so if you dont like the thread...... dont post in it!!! Part of this entire hotrodders forum is for us car enthusiasts/mechanics to voice our opinions about certain things, in this case oil, talk about new products and old products to put on our cars, provide support to those with good ideas and help others when they need it, and just have a casual conversation every now and then. who are you to judge us by what we are talking about??? The main reason im on this forum is to see what the best personal outcomes people had with their hotrods, similar to mine, see if i can benifit from their experience and knowledge, help if i can, and pass the knowledge and personal experience along.
Your right about pennzoil ap72, the only thing pennzoils good for is making candles, or as a replacement when you run outta soap. Why would they ever make an oil that's wax based???

I've only been a mechanic for a few years now but I can tell you NEVER EVER use Penzoil. I can smell a penzoil engine- too much parafin in the **** and it causes a lot of grime and burt buildup on every damn part of the engine- a pain to work on.
Mobil and Royal Purple are great oils- no doubt about that. If you're like me though you'd rather not spend $25 on an oil change if you don't need to. Valvoline conventional is from all I've seen the best low priced oil out there. I'll sometimes ask a customer what oil they use if its a damn clean engine under the valve cover, and it is always Valvoline. And those cars also are coming in at around 150,000 miles for routine maintenace like timing chains and belts and such never having had an internal problem. In the winter, if you have a harsh one, go for the pricey stuff like Mobil One or Valvoline Synthetic, however if it stays above 50F stick with standard 10W-30 Valvoline. It just makes sense.

|classic_chevy_guy||i was going to put synthetic and non-synthetic in there, but you only have so many options. I guess i should have put valvoline or castrol in as redline, i know redline is better than those, oh well.|

|KNanthrup||mobil, redline, amsoil|

Dead giveaway DOC!
We know who is Italian now.
Bumpstick voted for 0w- most unusual, thought I would be the only one in that bracket! must work for an oil company to know that?
