Shell’s Pennzoil brand is known for creating the first synthetic motor oil made from natural gas.
In the 1970s, Shell began investigating sources of energy other than crude oil, one of them being natural gas, to make fuel and lubricants.
The process of turning natural gas into oil is highly complex and has many stages, yet it offers superior benefits when compared to crude oil. Natural gas is very clean, and is free of many of the contaminants found in crude oil. When manufactured through
their patented process, the result is a synthetic base oil that is purer and performs better than traditional base oils made from crude.
In addition to synthetic motor oil, there are three other common varieties of motor oil:
This symbol has three parts: the top half of the circle, which indicates the API service rating, the center of the circle, which displays the SAE viscosity, and the lower half of the circle, which tells you the oil’s energy-conserving properties.
In addition to this, the ILSAC “starburst” can also be found on the motor oil bottle. This symbol appears on engine oils recommended for gasoline engines that have met API and certain fuel economy tests—the requirements of the International
Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC).
Introduced in 2020, the GF-6 will provide improved protection, better fuel economy and help to reduce emissions for modern engines. Pennzoil motor oils have met these requirements for API SP and ILSAC GF-6, and this can now be seen on the packaging that
will be on retailer shelves soon. To learn more about these exciting updates, visit Pennzoil’s website.
