The Women’s Choice Award® has named Pennzoil the 2018 America’s Most Recommended™ Auto Engine Oil based on a national survey distributed to tens of thousands of women across America who were asked to select the brands that they would highly recommend to their family and friends.

This award identifies and awards the brands, products, and services that are most highly recommended and trusted by women.

“To be recognized with the Women's Choice Award is an incredible honor for Pennzoil” said Bobbie Cumpston, North American Marketing Manager for Pennzoil. “We pride ourselves on having the most trusted motor oil in America and are glad to see that resonating with this key demographic."

No other motor oil beats Pennzoil® motor oils in engine sludge and wear protection.1

Pennzoil uses advanced techniques and technology to create innovative products that you can trust to provide complete protection for your engine. One of the ways we do this is by using our revolutionary PurePlus® Technology.

PurePlus® Technology is a 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. This means we begin with a cleaner foundation which will in turn keep your engine cleaner.

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.

All of Pennzoil’s products are designed for complete protection you can trust including not just our synthetic, but also our blend, high-mileage, and conventional motor oils. We are proud that our dedication to delivering excellent products has been recognized by the Women’s Choice Award.

“More than ever before, women have tremendous power to elevate the brands that have earned their confidence and trust,” said Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Awards. “Our seal is validation that women can expect excellence from Pennzoil.”
