    Cool, point of this thread is to take used oil analysis in the speed engines and compare it to others. Someone wants to try it cool, but until we start seeing UOA for the engine in this specific thread nothing's gonna change. For example if want to discuss a new oil to market? Cool let's create a fresh thread for that gather data then bring it back here.

    I have been running Pennzoil Platinum Euro 5w40, which has an API SP and ACEA B3/C4 rating.

    To be honest, I just assumed it was the Pennzoil a lot of people recommended.

    It does not have the Dexos certification, but I don't see this oil harming anything on my car (I hope). I should keep my eyes open more when purchasing because I assumed it was the normal Pennzoil Platinum...I never see Pennzoil Ultra Platinum around here in 5w40.

    Anyone run the Euro Platinum blend in their cars?

    This thread requires posting UOA tests. Unfortunately assumptions don't apply here, only test data.

    I found a VOA for Pennzoil Platinum Euro 5w40 on BITOG:

    https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/threads/pp-euro-5w40-sn-plus-formulation-voa.322868/

    Based on the goals of this thread, this oil is good in calcium, sodium and zinc levels, but low on moly.

    To clarify, I wasn't recommending the Platinum Euro...I was more concerned about the lack of Dexos 1 rating, so I was curious if there are any potential issues. It is formulated to resist LSPI conditions.

    Before the pandemic, I had signed up for, but had not committed to sending oils into a lab, but I will so that i can post my own VOA and UOAs.

    Rotella was always good for fuel dilution that's why it became the original go to oil. The downside is that it is terrible about creating black death in the hpfp.

    The lack of molybdenum in that to uoa disqualifies it from being in this thread as well. This thread is for best oil that helps prevent LSPI.

    To anyone reading Rotella has been shown to NOT be one of the best oils, some of the reasons are given by these two gents, want to discuss Rotella further do it in the discussion thread as stated by the OP when he created this thread, or adding oils to this list:
    https://mazdaspeeds.org/index.php?t...a-scratch-n-sniff-discussion.4603/#post-67081

    Any further UOA of Rotella or that it should be the best will be deleted from this thread until UOA and discussion had happened in the above linked thread, I have already gone ahead and deleted the last one UOA of Rotella in this thread again try to avoid confusion as this thread is not the intended discussion thread.

    There is also a dedicated UOA thread here:
    https://mazdaspeeds.org/index.php?threads/uoas-used-oil-reports-lets-see-em.5060/

    See some of the rational quoted below. If you're wondering where that post has gone that they're responding too at time of writing it's been deleted because Rotella is not one of the best oils with the new tech out.
