150 years of innovation
In 1866 an overheating steam engine was cooled with the first Valvoline lubricant. When the Model T was mass-produced in 1920, each one was filled with Valvoline motor oil before it left the plant. For over 150 years Valvoline™ has been innovating and pushing the limits of engine performance. Discover the heritage behind the products and services we proudly offer today.
