Valvoline Introduces New Modern Engine Full Synthetic Motor Oil

The company says the new product is specifically engineered to protect against carbon build-up in gasoline direct injection, turbo and other engines manufactured since 2012.

Valvoline Inc. has introduces Valvoline Modern Engine Full Synthetic Motor Oil. The company says the new product is specifically engineered to protect against carbon build-up in gasoline direct injection (GDI), turbo and other engines manufactured since 2012.

“For over 150 years, Valvoline has been at the helm of product innovation, meeting consumer needs with smart science and solutions. Our team is leading the industry with the launch of Valvoline Modern Engine,” said Heidi Matheys, Valvoline chief marketing officer. “As part of our full synthetic portfolio, Modern Engine will combat potential carbon build-up in newer engines – an issue that degrades vehicle performance. Most consumers are unaware that the issue even exists, even though it has the potential to impact roughly 100 million newer vehicles on the road today.”

Engines in vehicles 2012 and newer are built smaller and more efficient than ever. As a result, they run hotter, and are more susceptible to developing low speed pre-ignition (LSPI) knocking due to abnormal combustion, as well as fuel and oil related carbon build-up. These issues could lead to power and fuel economy loss – and ultimately, engine breakdown.

Valvoline has been pushing to combat carbon build-up in newer engines, introducing a new carbon build-up cleaning solution, Easy GDI Fuel System Service with Power Dispersal Technology, in 2017. Now, Valvoline has a way to remove carbon build-up but also protect today’s modern engines – ultimately helping to prevent carbon build-up on intake valves, pistons and turbo-chargers.

“Valvoline Modern Engine captures key learnings from extensive research on how motor oil formulation – namely oil properties and additive composition – not only influence but can actually help prevent the formation of carbon deposits in the newest engine models,” said Fran Lockwood, Valvoline chief technology officer. “With this innovative new product, we are seeing a significant reduction of carbon build-up. Our research indicates that modern engine provides 30 percent better protection against carbon build-up than industry standards.”
