Upgrade to the Complete Protection benefits of Pennzoil Platinum® with PurePlus™ Technology. 

Every motor oil is designed to protect, but with Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus™ Technology, we challenged ourselves to create motor oils that would excel in the five types of engine protection that would be important to you. Pennzoil Platinum® and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus™ Technology protect your engine and are the two best synthetic motor oils from Pennzoil.

#1 – CLEANER PISTONS IN YOUR ENGINE

Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus™ Technology keep pistons cleaner than any leading synthetic oil.1 Nothing keeps your engine as close to factory clean as the Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic line of motor oils with Active Cleansing Agents™.

Pennzoil Platinum® synthetics far exceed the most stringent car manufacturers’ requirements for cleansing and protection.2 They are engineered to keep a car’s engine in pristine condition, just like factory clean.

#2 – BETTER FUEL ECONOMY

Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus™ Technology help to prevent the loss of fuel economy, so you can enjoy more memories on the road. In fact, keeping an engine clean by using Pennzoil Platinum® can help you drive on average an extra 550 miles per year versus a dirty engine.3 In many cars, that’s like getting a free tank of gas or more every year.

#3 – PROTECTS HORSEPOWER

Pennzoil Platinum® and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic motor oils help protect your engine from loss of power. Sludge build-up can cause engines to perform at less than optimal efficiency, reducing horsepower over time. Pennzoil Platinum® motor oils help keep engines clean and therefore help protect against the loss of horsepower. It should come as no surprise that Pennzoil Platinum® line of motor oils are the factory fill for some of the world’s most prestigious performance cars. Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ is even used right off the shelf in racing cars. In fact, Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ is the exact same motor oil used in Team Penske cars that compete in the Verizon IndyCar Series and run in the Indianapolis 500.4

#4 – UNSURPASSED WEAR PROTECTION

No Full Synthetic motor oil provides better wear protection than Pennzoil Platinum® and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™. None. That’s because no other leading motor oil provides better protection from friction than Pennzoil Platinum® motor oils.4 Imagine how much that helps your engine.

#5 – EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE IN EXTREME TEMPERATURES

Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus™ Technology deliver excellent high- and low-temperature performance. Poor-performing oils can become too thin or too thick with extreme temperature changes, which can cause them to flow and protect improperly. PurePlus™ base oil, which is made from natural gas, resists temperature-related viscosity changes and stays thin enough to flow easily at low temperatures and thick enough to protect against wear at high temperatures. Low-temperature performance is critical, as severe engine wear can occur if your oil takes too long to reach vital engine components during start-up. And Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oils protect at extreme high temperatures by resisting oxidation and evaporative loss.

With Pennzoil Platinum® and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic motor oils, there is no need to settle for incomplete protection. And with today’s more sophisticated and higher-revving engines, complete protection has never been more critical.

So drive with the complete confidence you can get from Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic line of motor oils.
