About Valvoline

HANDS-ON EXPERTISE Since its founding, Valvoline™ and its scientists have been innovating, creating and reinventing formulas for racing, high-mileage, synthetic and recycled motor oils. It is this commitment to innovation that shows in our products that help keep vehicles safely rolling down roads all over the world. LEADERS IN TECHNOLOGY For more than 150 years Valvoline™ has been on the leading edge of motor oil technology. From creating the X-18 motor oil in 1939 to creating MaxLife™ high-mileage motor oil in 2000, Valvoline™ has always strived to innovate and provide daily drivers and automotive enthusiasts with quality motor oil and engine lubricants. Valvoline is proud to have been the only motor oil company that could perform all 5 required gasoline tests for the current API and ILSAC gasoline categories in-house at our Ashland, Kentucky, engine test lab. These advanced engine test technologies allowed Valvoline more freedom and flexibility to innovate. As we upgrade these tests to the new tests for the next generation API and ILSAC specification, we continue our longstanding tradition of true hands-on innovation. 150 YEARS OF QUALITY LUBRICANTS When the Model T was first mass-produced in 1920, each one was filled with Valvoline™ motor oil before it left the plant. Over the last 100 years as engine technology has evolved, so has motor oil technology, and Valvoline™ has been innovating all the way. Valvoline™ can provide high-quality motor oils because we don’t refine our own base oils from crude. This allows us the flexibility to search the market for the finest base oils available for our motor oils and other lubricants. That quality is evident in each bottle marked with the Valvoline™ brand.
