Chevron Products Company, a Chevron U.S.A. Inc. division, maker of the Havoline brand of advanced passenger car motor oils, has announced the launch of Havoline PRO-RS renewable full synthetic motor oil. This is its first renewable motor oil product and ultra-premium addition to the Havoline portfolio. The product is made with 25% sustainably sourced plant-based oils manufactured by Novvi LLC.
Havoline PRO-RS uses Chevron's Ecostrength technology, a process to develop high-performance synthetic lubricants using renewable plant-based feedstocks. Havoline PRO-RS has all the performance attributes of a premium, full synthetic motor oil, including cleaning power and wear protection. This product also enhances certain environmental performance attributes like emission control and lower carbon intensity compared to full synthetic motor oil.
Havoline PRO-RS delivers superior fuel economy retention, which can save on fuel costs and helps to maintain the oil's fuel economy longer than other petroleum-based full synthetic motor oils that degrade over time. Havoline PRO-RS also provides thermal protection to maintain the oils' original viscosity to protect against oil breakdown.
Havoline previously launched two different motor oil package styles that use recyclable cardboard to reduce plastic waste. PitPack is a 6-gal. package used in fast lube and mechanic shops, while Havoline Smart Change is a 6-qt. package found on the retail shelves and online at Walmart. Havoline PRO-RS will be sold in both package styles.
Havoline PRO-RS will initially be available November 1 to professional installers in the United States and Canada, including owners and operators within Chevron's network of Havoline xpress lube and Chevron xpress lube locations. Havoline PRO-RS will be available for purchase by U.S. consumers in the 6-qt. Smart Change package on Walmart.com and at other retail locations in early 2022.
