THE HISTORY OF HAVOLINE®

Advanced Refining

If you had a car back before Havoline launched in 1904, it probably would have spent the winter idle in the barn, because cold weather could cause waxy motor oils to thicken into a sluggish mass. Havoline engineers overcame this problem by inventing an exclusive filtration process that helped to rid the oil of its waxiness.

Innovative Additives

As refining advanced, so did additive technologies. In 1946, Havoline introduced its "New and Improved Havoline Motor Oil," which for the first time featured additives that inhibited corrosion, provided detergent and dispersive action, reduced piston ring wear at both low and high temperatures, and protected against engine rust. These innovations have continued, year after year, and rigorous field tests have proven time and again that Havoline products offer unbeaten performance.

Outstanding Technology… Outstanding Performance

For decades, Havoline motor oils have provided outstanding performance. Today’s Havoline lives up to its heritage with its latest exceptional technology: Havoline with Deposit Shield®, an advanced formulation that protects your engine from harmful deposits, helps improve performance, and maximizes fuel economy.
