As one of our partners, you are familiar that ”The Proof is in the Pennzoil” is more than just a slogan – it is grounded in our position as the most trusted motor oil in America*, being the first synthetic motor oil made from natural gas and the resulting unbeatable engine protection of Pennzoil Synthetics which are recommended by some of the world’s leading car manufacturers.

Pennzoil does more than just offer a great product; we provide you with unique capabilities to drive business traffic, consumer loyalty and profits through technological innovations which offer an excellent brand experience.
