quote:Many of you are probably well aware of this, but I didn't realize that they "invented most of the componets used in today's motor oils." Here is my question. Do other oil companies such as BP, Pennzoil etc use Lubrizol's additves as well, or are they like ExxonMobil and create there own. I know Amsoil works very close with Lubrizol and that Mobil uses there own additives, but if Lubrizol invented most of them, where does that leave ExxonMobil as a player in this market? Do they make similar additves, buy from them etc.?? [ August 15, 2003, 09:15 PM: Message edited by: buster ]
The Lubrizol Corporation is the world leader in designing, manufacturing and supplying performance additives, or components, for passenger car motor oils. We invented most of the components used in today's motor oils and our components are compatible with the widest range of the world's base oils.
