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.


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.


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.


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


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.


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.
