Valvoline History

Valvoline logo

Valvoline motor oil was founded back in 1866 by Dr. John Ellis, one of the pioneers for the refinement of crude oil. He originally hoped that oil would have medicinal properties but failed in that endeavor. The name Valvoline was incorporated in 1873.

Valvoline motor oil was used in the first North American car race held in Chicago, Illinois, in 1895 and by the early 1900s was the recommended oil of car manufacturer Henry Ford.

Valvoline racing teamThe company has sponsored racing events and cars, including the Daytona 500, the Indy 500, NASCAR, and Formula One. Valvoline recently extended their support of Hendrick Motorsports 12 time NASCAR Cup winning champion driver Alex Bowman through 2022.

In 1987, the company introduced its own quick-service oil change locations, providing preventative maintenance for consumers, including oil changes, radiator flushing, batteries, belts, and transmission servicing.

Attention: Sam Mitchell, Jr.
I thought you might like to know how I was cheated at your store at 4053 East Broad St, Columbus, Ohio. I got an oil change, gave the girl my $10 off coupon, and left the store after giving her my charge card to pay. At my next stop I realized that I did not get the $10 off. I went back 10 minutes later and Sam, the manager, said he could not give me a $10 refund or cancel the charge and run it again correctly. As I pulled away, he had gone back to the girl who handled my transaction and it appeared that they were both laughing. I hate being cheated! Starting Monday I will contact the BBB, Angie’s List, and a number of other sites, so other people won’t have to deal with Vavoline Oil. I will also dispute the credit card charge. I don’t know if this is a franchise or corporate store, but I thought you should know how customers are being treated. Gene Shuman 9/6/19
