Pennzoil for your E-series.

I'm taking my car in for a service on Friday and am supplying my own oil as I want to use something decent. I've heard quite a few positive comments about Pennzoil.

Anyone use it in their E-series (pref. EBII-ED)? What viscosity(?) is best and all that other jargon?!

Cheers.

Pennzoil is good stuff, as is Penrite, and Penrite is made in OZ.

Re: Pennzoil for your E-series.

I've never heard anything bad about Penrite. HPR30 would be the one I'd use.

Re: Pennzoil for your E-series.

I used penrite hpr 30 and removed it after 2700 k's, it was crap, real bad on my lifters. ticked like a super bitch. I went back to mobil 1 (with sythinol or whatever toss wank that is), and slowly my lifters are retuening to normal. Next i shall be trying shell helix synthetic as its like 20 bucks cheaper and is supposedly better.

pls ignore my bad ass spelling.

Re: Pennzoil for your E-series.

I used to run Pennzoil in my car and had no complaints. These days I use Castrol GTX2 for a few reasons. 1. The engine seems to like it. 2. You can buy it almost anywhere and 3. It's pretty cheap compared to other oils.

Re: Pennzoil for your E-series.

I used to use shell helix, now I use shell helix plus. Never had a problem with either of them, so I stick to what works for my car.
