What does it represent? I've seen commercials where they pour from two bottles and then they superimpose that "V" while they are pouring.

The colors, It seems as if they were taken from their parent company (Ashland) and Perhaps from Standard Oil way back when?

Look at this picture, they all share the same color, Standard/Ashland/Amoco. Is this color scheme planned this way, or is this some random thing?

Don't you draw pentagrams on your sump pan for good luck too?

I think the V stands for Vrooooom! Meaning if you use Valvoline your car will go fast.

Found my answer.


The "V" stands for "pouring" and the blue(cold) and the Red(hot) means it protects/flows in hot and cold climates.

No thanks for the help, page 23 google image search.

you're joking right?
You are looking at possible corporate lineage for the use of THOSE Colors?
When those Logos were made/used,those were all Strongly AMERICAN companies.
they are all using the same color palate as AMERICA.

RED, WHITE, and BLUE.

Why? you ask...'MERICA! that's why.

Valvoline? Thought it might have been value line as a price conscious oil for everyday folk. Kinda like Supertech.

The V forms a Vector and a piramid in the angle. Corporate symbolism stuff. If you wanna know more, utube Jordan Maxwell vids on the subject. That's a talk form, you know?

Maybe it just stands for Valvoline...and its red white and blue because that's better than commie red and yellow?

It does smell like victory though...much like napalm

My guess is it's because "Valvoline" sounds much better than "Aloline."
