I looked at some SHELL oil that was on sale,
the2-1/2 gallon container was marked, in small
print, "Product of Pennziol". I'd never put that
Pennzoil in anything. Used to be that, when you took an engine apart, you could always tell the ones that used Pennzoil, as they were full of
Black sludge !

Years ago, when I got my first car, the engine was pretty well sludged up. I asked one of the older mechanics in the dealership what I should do to clean it up. He told me to change the oil, and use Pennzoil. Then change it every 2000 to 3000 miles until it got cleaned up. I did as he told me, and it worked like a charm. He also told me that he never lost an engine to Pennzoil. Now, many years later, I can honestly say that I have never lost an engine to Pennzoil. I have only ever lost TWO engines. First was in a 1962 Oldsmobile - a 394cid V-8. I was using Quaker State for some reason. The second was a 1964 Dodge with a 170cid slant six. Bought the car with a rod knocking, drove it for nearly a year that way, and it finally let go. I had been told (years ago) that Wolf's Head was made in the same refinery as Pennzoil. Over the years, the consensus has been that the oils refined from Pennsylvania crude oil have better lubricating qualities for engines that other oils. Also, years ago, I worked in a Buick dealership that used Kendall oils exclusively. I also remember a lot of Buicks coming in on the hook with a rod through the side of the block in those days. Could there be a connection? As a last note - I never did like Castrol. And to top it off, I found their advertising to be extremely OFFENSIVE!!! Showing that idiot running around smacking people across the back of the legs with a dipstick was not only a bad example, but the one that wants to try it on me will get a broken jaw!!! No point to teaching bad habits to the new generation of mechanics. They will have it hard enough as it is.
