    It's slippery, lubricates very well, and they sell a lot of it.

    Royal Dutch Shell Oil U.S. = SOPUS = Shell, Quaker State and Pennzoil............... so Shell did the extraction research.

    Look real hard - 5 types of Pennzoil and Shell Rotella on the shelf ..................

    Re: Opinions on oil from natural gas?

    With the amount of natural gas that we have in this country from a oil conservation point of view I think its great. I would like to know more on the process of turning a gas into a lubricant.

    You could start your own little caddy parts store. Nice stock pile I am jealous a little! Synthetic over conventional; How much of a fuel mileage increase would there be? Enough to justify the switch or trivial once the cost is factored in?

    Re: Opinions on oil from natural gas?

    Actually, on the right end, top shelf and wall studs is mostly Olds 455 parts, new and used. 8 more feet of shelf to the right.....What you don't see are two 455 short blocks on the floor - with many tricks.

    We run the Pennzoil Long Life 15W-40 conventional in large marine engines. Good stuff. I have been using PzPlatinum - 5W-20 in the trucks and 5W-30 in the STS - for 8 years now. More good stuff - the Northstar gets over 6,500 miles/quart and I change that oil/filter each March. Neither 4.6 F-150 burns/uses a drop of oil in 7,500 miles.

    Gas mileage differences are unmeasurable. Outside air temp and warmup time makes more of a difference than dino/synthetic oils would. Two minutes of idling in traffic would throw any differences out the window.

    Oil from natural gas ??? Google "pennzoil synthetic oil from natural gas".

    EDIT: I have fooled with AMSOIL, Royal Purple, Valvoline, Havoline, AMOCO, Quaker State, Castrol, Kendall, Wolf's Head, several others over the years. It's all good oil, dino or synthetic, claims and wive's tales notwithstanding.

    We sell the Wolf's Head by the boat load to our shops and walk ins. They don't spend millions in advertising and have plan packaging but the product is solid. For the price it just is sure hard to beat it.

    That Kendall can jogged my memory back to the days when we had to change our oil and lubricate the chassis every 1000 miles. Tires were expected to only last about 10,000 miles (if you were lucky). How times a have changed!

    Remember the green one gallon Castrol tin cans - SAE 30 or SAE 20 ? We sold tons of it at Manhattan Auto in Bethesda.

    Re: Opinions on oil from natural gas?

    This thread has much more meaning now that Iraq (and its oil fields/exports) is about to go down again - and oil closed at over $106 a bbl last night. Thats a tad higher than the price spike of 2011 that drove regular gas prices to $4 a gallon.

    In our infinite wisdom we have blocked the Keystone, slowed production of oil from fracking, slowed oilfield development in the central U.S., yet we continue to send billions in "aid" (read: bribe money) to our "allies" in the Middle East while they soak us with inflated oi pricing.
