Valvoline, a brand of Ashland Inc. announced the addition of two new NextGen motor oil products for commercial and industrial customers. NextGen Premium Blue SAE 15W-40 and NextGen All Fleet Plus SAE 15W-40 products will be available in bulk and drum sizes from Valvoline and other distributors starting as early as November.

The new oil formulas are made from 50 percent recycled oil and deliver 100 percent Valvoline engine protection. NextGen motor oil is great for engines and better for the environment, exceeding industry specifications with reduced environmental impact because recycling takes fewer resources than refining crude oil. NextGen Premium Blue and NextGen All Fleet Plus join the successful launch of NextGen passenger car oils that already have more than one million users since introduction this summer.

NextGen motor oil is the culmination of years of continued research, technology and innovation from Valvoline scientists coupled with advancement in the oil re-refining process. Used oil is now refined with the same processes as crude oil.  Since used oil actually contains fewer contaminants and more usable molecules than crude oil, the result is new, high quality base oil. NextGen takes advantage of the highest quality recycled oil and improves it with Valvoline's award-winning additives to make NextGen exceed industry specifications and match the high quality of other Valvoline oils. The re-refining process takes a lesser toll on our natural resources, making NextGen "better than new" oil.
