Something not discussed often is the extreme impact a cam replacement has on a restored car, and if you've flattened a lobe, pulling an engine. We go through painstaking efforts to get every aspect of the build just perfect and build the car around the engine, just like gm did. So, it's not just who you believe, it's getting it RIGHT!
If BP's formula is no longer used, it needs to be validated and exposed.
Not going to just take someone's word for it, so I had a long discussion with a tech from PennGrade and he assured me it's the same formula, same as Kendall developed and same as BradPenn sold for decades.
They sent me this memo as this has been discussed with virtually all their distributers with good reason. I also understand that some execs within PG and Driven have swapped places, and have both shared employees from ARG refineries. It gets even thicker, but I'll save that one.
Here's the memo he shared.....

Subject: PennGrade 1® The Original Green Oil
Over the past few months we have fielded a number of questions from our loyal customer base whether the PennGrade 1® “The Original Green Oil” has changed? The answer is NO! In the months following D-A Lubricant Company’s acquisition of the Brad Penn Finished Lubes division from American Refining Group (ARG), D-A decided to rename The Original Green Oil product and redesign the quart bottle for marketing purposes and product visibility.
With the product’s new name and appearance, various customers, distributors and competitors questioned whether or not there was a change to the PennGrade 1 product. When you are a leader the copycats and competitors are always looking for opportunities to gain market share.
We have put out a paper which can be found at https://penngrade.com/performance-pr...nal-green-oil/
. The purpose of this paper is to let our multi-generational, loyal customers know PennGrade 1® Partial Synthetic High-Performance Oil SAE 20W-50 — The Original Green Oil — as well as the entire PennGrade 1® product line is the same product today as it has been for decades.
It continues to use the unique Pennsylvania Grade base oil cut and the specially-selected high-zinc, high-phosphorus formulation that’s been known and trusted by high-performance engine builders and vehicle owners for decades. While the name and look have changed, the performance you have come to know, and trust has not. The Original Green Oil is still alive and thriving. And our tests prove it.
I strongly encourage you to send a copy of this paper to all your PennGrade 1® Dealers and share with all of your customers. If you or any of your dealers have questions please do not hesitate to contact us. We very much appreciate your confidence in our company and our products, as well as the business you have placed with us.
