Is the Pennzoil Synthetic oil better than the Valvoline also on sale at Walmart?

add another item to get $10 off $40 with this coupon:
canadian-tire-10-off-40-select-gta-locations-2262622/
Coupon fine print says "not valid in conjunction with any other offer, coupon or discount"

I wonder if they would not accept this coupon because the oil is already at a discount due to the sale price. Maybe it only works if you're buying regular priced items?

Oil is oil. Unless your a race car driver, it doesn't really matter what you use. What matters is your frequency when you change it more so. Buy whatever name brand is on sale, and change it religiously every 6-8K. My car calls for oil changes every 16K as per manufacturer recommendations, yeah thats a no from me. Every 6K I change.

Maxlife? Don't use a motor oil with seal conditioners unless you need to (and don't switch back). Comparison? Homework - to make it simple, look the cold pour point. 5W30: Maxlife: <= -36C, Penn Plat Hi-Mi: -51C. Lower is better. This difference is large enough you may actually notice it when cold starting.

The rebate form mentions ONE $10 rebate for buying a particular 5L product.
In order to get $40 rebate, we have to buy different types of oil to get it?

No. You select that line, but you can submit up to 4 of the same (or different) 5L products. I've done that the past 2 yrs without a problem. I would recommend marking the quantity on your scan though, so they easily know how many you're submitting.

Yea, because I guess you know much more than the engineers at the auto companies.
Oil is not oil … there are different grades/specs. If you mean there are no differences between brands, then ok … I won't argue that (don't care). Best advice is not to just change it regularly, but rather to use what the manufacturer recommends and to follow their change interval recommendation.

You can believe what you want from auto companies. But I speak with examples as I work in the auto industry. Manufacturer recommended is 20K for oil change. Vehicle came in with 16K on it as engine was done. Engine tear down revealed, oil was pure sludge inside. Could be a rare case sure. Doesn't happen all the time. Seen from a friend that works at a different manufacturer, with the recommended 16K oil change interval and engines were done. Same deal, inside was sludge. But the choice is your own. I'm a car guy so I do mine every 6.

And yes I'm referring to the is this oil better than this oil debate.

I tend to agree, although good synthetic oil can last until 10-12K with a good synthetic filter.

Most of the tests done on oil by the major companies are done in lab conditions, where the motor run continuously for 16-20K, which is no wonder they last for so long. If your normal driving involves stop and go, dusty areas, extreme weather (hot summer cold winter and changes in humidity), well, that number is going to drop drastically. Most manufacturers will have recommendations for ideal and severe conditions, and rarely do daily drivers meet the condition for those ideal conditions.

Motor oil is a science but it's not rocket science. Even most manufactures will say its ok to use different grades of oil in an emergency and your car wont blow up or anything. For a few years back I was only putting maybe 5K on my car in a whole year and my mechanic told me it's still best to change it every year due to humidity and pollutant buildup in the oil. Regular oil change like you say is more important than putting the most expensive/exotic stuff

I've never bought the oil. How much do you guys pay for oil change when you bring your oil? What about filter? do you buy yourself?

Same. I don’t listen to what the manufacturer says about oil changes. 16,000-20,000?! Too high for me.

Engine oils cheap, engines are expensive. You choose.

Used the 10 off 40 to buy the Mobil1 and filter that was on sale last week. Can't see how they would exclude items they have on sale, this is aimed towards other promos they could be having such as getting 10x CtMoney back, promo cards such as spend 100 get 20 off next purchase etc. This would be pretty hot as one jug +filter is just over 40 and then you would get 20$ back from the Pennzoil promo and this 10 off 40.
