Over a Century of Quality

For over 150 years, Valvoline has served the needs of car owners with quality motor oils and automotive products. We carefully formulate and race test our products, always keeping in mind the words of Valvoline founder Dr. John Ellis: "Quality is never an accident."

Today, Valvoline is a leading supplier of automotive and industrial products in more than 100 countries. But as much as the industry has changed since Ellis’ time, one thing has remained the same: Valvoline’s commitment to quality.

The following information will help you better understand the basics of motor oil so you can make a more informed purchase decision. The more you know about motor oil, the better you will be able to protect one of your most significant investments — your vehicle.

The Valvoline Family of Brands

Valvoline introduced motor oil in 1866, and we’ve been reinventing it ever since. We’re proud of our products, but we take equal pride in our people. The Valvoline name has been built over 150 years. As roadways stretched across the country and America’s fascination with the automobile grew, Valvoline was under the hood, a trusted motor oil in garages throughout the nation. Today we carry on that legacy by continually searching for new breakthroughs in motor oil, informed by the lab, the garage and an unrivaled amount of hands-on experience.

Valvoline™ is a leading innovator and supplier of quality, high-performing automotive and industrial products in more than 100 countries. Best known for its lubricants, Valvoline also markets ZEREX™ antifreeze/coolant, Valvoline Professional Series™ Chemicals, Valvoline Filters, and Valvoline Wipers.
