Pennzoil Platinum full synthetic SAE 5W-20 motor oil is uniquely engineered from our revolutionary PurePlus gas-to-liquid technology, which is a patented process that converts pure natural gas into a high quality, full synthetic base oil. Our high-quality base oil is 99.5% pure, contains fewer impurities than base oils made from crude oil, and when combined with our advanced additive technology, creates one of the best formulations in our Pennzoil portfolio. Pennzoil Platinum full synthetic SAE 5W-20 motor oil is licensed and meets the vehicle warranty requirements of GM’s dexos 1 Gen 2 specifications that are set forth to meet today’s modern engine technologies. This means that our Pennzoil Platinum full synthetic products meet the stringent requirements of leading car manufacturers. Why does this matter? Modern engine technologies have evolved over the years and today’s engine parts have reached an unprecedented level of fine manufacturing tolerances which require a high-quality engine oil to help provide complete engine protection. This includes protection against abnormal combustion phenomenon like low-speed pre-ignition observed in modern turbocharged gasoline direct injection (TGDI) engines. Our Pennzoil Full Synthetic products are engineered for modern engines and offer the following benefits without compromise:
Better Fuel Economy
With Pennzoil Platinum full synthetic motor oil, you can drive on average an extra 550 miles vs a dirty engine1
Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic motor oil helps protect against loss of power by helping to protect your engine against wear and deposit formation
Unsurpassed Wear Protection
When it comes to protecting the internal parts of your engine from metal-on-metal contact, no other leading synthetic motor oil provides better wear protection than Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic motor oil 2.
Excellent Temperature Performance
When exposed to extreme cold temperatures, Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic motor oil flows faster, meaning that the motor oil travels quickly to lubricate the various engine parts. When exposed to extreme hot temperatures, Pennzoil Full Synthetic motor oil has a lower tendency to evaporate3. Cleaner Pistons
Offers outstanding piston cleanliness by capturing dirt and contaminants and keeping pistons up to 50% cleaner than required by the toughest industry standards4

Motor oil is made from crude oil and is used to lubricate, clean, and cool engines. Types of motor oil include conventional, synthetic, diesel, bio-based, hybrid (blends of conventional and synthetic), and recycled oils. Motor oil varies in weight and viscosity, as well as additives that some manufacturers add to the oil during the refining process. A numerical code system created by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) grades motor oils according to viscosity--the higher the number between 0 and 60, the more viscous (thicker) the oil is. Most consumer motor oils are graded by two numbers, with the first number indicating cold weather (Winter or "W") performance.
This oil has a weight of SAE 5W-20, meaning it has an SAE viscosity rating of 5 in cold temperatures and a rating of 20 at normal operating temperature. Always check your vehicle's owner's manual to verify that this is the correct weight of motor oil for your vehicle.
Full Synthetic Oil
This oil is a full synthetic oil, meaning crude oil is not used in making it. Synthetic oil can be used in vehicle engines instead of motor oils refined from crude oil, and often provides superior mechanical performance over traditional motor oil, including increased gas mileage and reduced engine wear at extreme temperatures. Its complex method of production means it can often cost more than conventional motor oil.
