Valvoline Buying Guide



About Valvoline

Valvoline’s story first began in 1866 when the company’s founder, Dr. John Ellis, formulated the world’s first petroleum-based lubricant, Valvoline oil. Since then, Valvoline has seen over 150 years of high quality automotive lubricant production and played a crucial role in making the modern racing industry what it is today, including sponsoring Valvoline Raceway. Safe to say, their 150 years of experience has not gone unnoticed – today, Valvoline is renowned for their engineering excellence and innovation and the remains one of Australia’s favourite engine oil and lubricant brands.
