A Clean, Pure Synthetic

At Pennzoil, we’re always pushing motor oil technology to help cars run at their best. So we’ve been hard at work developing the next great innovation in motor oil.

Combining innovation and technology, we start with something different: natural gas. PurePlus Technology™ is a patented, revolutionary process that converts pure natural gas into high-quality, full synthetic base oil used in the Pennzoil Platinum® line of lubricants. Because our base oil is made from natural gas, it's crystal clear, with fewer of the impurities found in crude oil—the start for many other traditional and synthetic motor oils. To that pure, clear base, we add our unique high performance additives to create Pennzoil Platinum® and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic Motor Oils, our most modern and innovative synthetic oils.

Pennzoil Platinum® with PurePlus Technology™ is a range of full synthetic motor oils designed for complete engine protection, without compromise. Our fully formulated premium oils help keep pistons cleaner than any other leading synthetic1, deliver better fuel economy2, protect against horsepower loss, provide unsurpassed wear protection3, and deliver excellent performance in extreme temperatures. So when you choose a motor oil, go with the brand delivering complete protection and advancing the motor oil industry.
