Is Lucas better than Pennzoil? Let's find out!

  • Published: 06 May 2019
  • Lucas vs Pennzoil and Motul vs 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.

    I use Penn ultra.  Why, because lab tests have shown that it is very good on a number of fronts particularly the evaporative tests, which to my mind your engine is less likely to clog up the emissions side of a veh engine, which in itself pollutes the air more when not working properly.  Thank you for a great tutorial & your time.

    Next time you do these 1 lubricant vs another add the high performance oils like the Castrol EDGE. Are they actually better than the standard synthetic oils or conventional oils? It would be cool if there was a full on oil showdown. One video where all the major oil types are tried out and compared.

     I really enjoy your videos!!!

      Hey PF I was always told you cant use conventional oil if you ever used synthetic because it would sludge up. Is that true? If so can you somehow make a video showing and explaining in full detail?

      Great videos! Please do a best motorcycle oil video including Rotella t4 15w40 and t6 in both 5w40 and 15w40. They are used by a lot of motorcyclists as they are both wet clutch JASO-MA approved.

      Guarantee you get a ton of views on that one! Thanks!

      It's worth noting that the oil you chose as the loser (Lucas) actually has better wear protection than the oil you decided as the winner (Pennzoil).

      I used to swear by Motul 300v when I had my Subaru Impreza WRX, I’m guessing it’s quite a bit different to the Eco version as it’s an Ester based race oil.

      Would be cool to see the best of each brands face off.

        Is there a difference between pennzoil platinum and pennzoil ultra platinum?

        • orgsrt4505
          orgsrt4505  4 months back

          @Project Farm because on this video you have pennzoil platinum and on the final vs amsoil you have ultra platinum.

          Yes, there's a huge difference in additive package.

            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.
