Valvoline Motor Oil Historical Information
1866 - Valvoline was founded by Dr. John Ellis who formulated a petroleum-based lubricant in 1866 and trademarked the Valvoline name in 1873. Unable to find any healing powers in crude oil, Dr. John Ellis changes course and develops a petroleum lubricant for steam engines running at high temperatures.
1939 - Valvoline develops a single grade oil, called X-18, that eliminates the need for 18 other specific car lubricants.
1945 - Leading up to the end of WWII, Valvoline is widely used to lubricate allied vehicles. If it’s good enough for an army fleet, you can use it in your family car.
1954 - With the economy in high gear, hot rods all the rage and people driving more often, automakers shift to the powerful overhead valve v8 engine. Valvoline responds with its all-climate oil, so people don’t have to switch oils for each season.
1965 - With America’s obsession with the speed and power of muscle cars, Valvoline introduces an oil specifically designed for racing, now called VR1.
