Pennzoil vs Lucas & Motul vs Penrite! Let's find out!

  • Published on: 06 May 2019
  • Pennzoil tested against Lucas and Motul tested against Penrite.

    I purchased the Pennzoil, Lucas, and Motul oil and 2 very generous viewers sent the Penrite oil to me, since I wasn't able to locate a place that sells it locally. I am not sponsored by Pennzoil, Lucas, Motul, Penrite, or by any product manufacturer. So, thank you very much for requesting this video! In the previous episodes, Amsoil won over Royal Purple, Amazon won over Liqui Moli, Red Line won over Super Tech, and Schaeffer's won over Mobil 1.

    The testing methods outlined in this video are my own and not performed using expensive oil lab testing equipment or following the ASTM, SAE or API testing standards. The three tests outlined in the video include tests for viscosity at varying temperatures, film strength, and evaporative testing. In my opinion, the testing approaches used in this video provide consumers with valuable information on choosing the right motor oil for their specific application. Hope you enjoy the video and thank you very much for supporting the channel by watching the commercials and through Patreon support.

    There is a mistake here and in later videos. This video uses Pennzoil Platinum while the videos after this one uses Pennzoil Ultra Platinum! The ultra platinum does not have to b better than the platinum. In fact, there are people claiming the current formulation of the platinum is better than the ultra platinum. I suggest a match between the Pennzoil Platinum and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum to determine which one is better. Of course, if Pennzoil Platinum beats Pennzoil Ultra Platinum, then please do a rematch between Amsoil and Pennzoil Platinum. Otherwise, the matches cannot be called fair, right?

    Real lubricity test would be after cooking oil while still hot, lubricity is industrial measured at operating temp, cold test is good for cold start condition but doesn't test the true lubricity of the oil which is achieved between 180° and 250° (350+ on PAO based synthetic) above 200 is where you really test the manufacturer additive package


    Damn that Motul evap test was crazy impressive ! Only lost by .001 grams which could be within margin of error.

    I have really enjoyed this series and have learned a lot by watching. What would you think of doing a similar series on gear oil for differentials and transmissions? Some axle parts manufacturers are recommending conventional oils over synthetics to keep the warranty. Which ones are good and which are snake oil?

    Why weren't the oils all the same spec? SN GF5 vs SL A5/B5 isn't comparing apples with apples.

    I'd love to see him do a Coolant Additive test comparing some of the best additives. Amsoil Dominator Coolant Boost, Redline Water Watter, Royal Purple Purple Ice, Hyper Cool, Lucas Super Coolant, VP Racing Madditve Cool Down and whatever else is hiding out there.

    Curious to see what the results of Motul X-Clean and X-Cess would be... I know their 8100 series has a bunch of variations

    I always used Motul 2-stroke oil in my motorbikes and outboards ,be interesting to see how good it is to other 2-stroke oils, it might not be as good as I thought

    The Motul oil, I think it's a older bottle, because the newest version of Eco-lite has the Dexos specification

    i think pennzoil ultra platinum would have been a better test.

    If the cold oil flow was measured in time then all the oils could be compared objectively like like the wear and evaporative figures.

    Fucken hell.The Aussie penrite is the best oil.So lucky I have access to it here in Australia

    Wrong choice of Motul friend, you must be using the same 8100 series but X-Clean, X-Cess, X-Max for a comparable oil model like pen rite you chose to use. You should redo this for more accurate comparison; that would be something Id like to see considering the controls you use. Keep up the hard work and thanks for the good content!

    Haha, was just getting ready to ask if you had ever tested cooked oil on the lubricity Test when you said you were going to. Great work and I’m excited to see the change👍

    Have you done a test on which is the best transmission additive or conditioner? If not want to test Lucas and Seafoam, etc.

    Thanks for sharing all your great videos! For a number of years, Gas engine motor oil has had a rating of SN on it. Now they are changing the rating to SN plus. It would be interesting to see if there are any detectable differences between the 2, given the same brand and weight. Another test for motor oil you may want to consider would be one for foaming. This could be done in a blender to see which brand has the most control over foaming. Last a test to see which motor oil cleans the best inside and engine. This could be done by making up a mixture of dirt and grease and then applying it to a bolt and let it sit and dry for a few days. Then place it in a clean container of oil and let it sit for a few days and see how clean it comes out. You may even want to figure out a way to shake the bolt or move the bolt in the oil to make the test more like it was in an engine.
