Oil blended by a company that calls itself "AN" with an ISO 9001:2000
certified plant, under authority of Pennzoil America and distributed by
UMW.

Claim to meet service classification API:SM/CF

but the question is, does it really follow the formula from US? because what we saw in US that the Pennzoil Platinum are only fully synthetic. but here, even a semi-synt can label itself as "pennzoil platinum"....

and also, in the US there was no semi-synt as platinum, maybe malaysia here self develop a new semi-synt range or formula, then sell it under the name of pennzoil platinum???

in US, we can easily get the data sheet/ typical propeties to do comparison with other brand, and ofcuz US Pennzoil are providing this data sheet on their own website, but what we can see here is only some "marketing *so called data sheet*"... why they dont provide the data sheet here? even Mobil or Castrol will provide it in Malaysia.

actually, what we thought are... are this two oil different formula, even not good as original US pennzoil? or they just do it theyself develop their own oil and label it as Pennzoil...?

however, pennzoil (the US one) really a good oil and higher reputation in US, but how about malaysia's?

just my 2sen, correct me if im wrong.

It is manufactured under license from Pennzoil and UMW sub it to AN to do the blending.
If formulas are followed and relevant tests are done to confirm end results than there should not be a problem.
How confident we are that this is done is what is worrisome.

i see, i hope so.
wonder why not many people talking about this UMW Pennzoil since the price are cheaper than other big oil company brand. how is the quality if compare with mobil or castrol?
i would like to hear some opinion, anyone use this before?

I have used the Platinum 10w-40 semisyn for my Cefiro and GT 15W-50 mineral for the WAJA.
Like most oil I use, I can not tell any difference using it, now I am back to Shell Helix HX7 because I get it free with my Bonuslink points.
Penzoil in Malaysia claims they have this time release properties which will keep the engine clean.
BUT do take note that claims like that is not on their oil for the American market because they will get in trouble with their FTA because it cannot be substantiated technically.
The situation is similar to the Castrol Magnatec claim of molecular attraction, Castrol do not claim that in their American market.

That means if there are no authority checking on this, they are bluffing the whole world? ohmy.gif ohmy.gif

all those words came out from salesman mouth can't believe 100% 1

cause all the pros become superb & all the cons become pros,

also all the technical term used become irrelevant cause its application became "bend"

Donno about the local version, but over in US, Pennzoil's mineral oil is considered to be among the best in class. The Pennzoil Platinum FS is also highly regarded, and is one of only a handful of oils that meet the Honda/Acura HTO-06 spec for their RDX 2.3 VTEC turbo SUV.

I think the ori US PP can be gotten from Ace Hardware - 10w-30 1 quart for RM42 i think...anybody tried it before? they also have a 10w-30 mineral for high mileage vehicles...RM21 i think...claims it can reduce oil consumption...
