It seems as though Redline made some changes to their website. Looks a lot flashier and modern than it did before. If I'm late to the party just ignore me, but I swear it didn't look like it does now a few weeks ago. I like what they've done to it. What do you guys think of it?

They claim OE series is III/PAO.

Top of the line still blended with POE in unknown %.

CPs influence. Id like to see a VOA of the OE.

Another one bites the dust . . .

Hope the additive solubility agent is either Grp II or ester or the metal cling polarity of a III/PAO blend won't be great.

Sad when a company get bought out by a corporation. Just like when RP got bought out,that was the end of Synerlec (unless you buy their more expensive HRS or XPR).

Two more wonderful indie companies gone bye bye.

Yep they bought a name. This is just another reason why I will never be loyal to one product or one brand anymore. As soon as I find that a product I was using was tweaked in a way that I'm not happy with, I'm done with them. That looks like it might be the case here.

Ugh. As usual, new site design is worse than the old one.

I didn't realize they got bought out. That's pretty [censored]. Atleast we still have Amsoil

Time to buy every old bottle of it you can find, and add it to the stash.

Why would a website redesign equal the company being bought out? I don't see the connection.

Looks like they are just adding group 3 oil to their line. The group 5 ester oil is still the same. They were bought out some time ago, not recently I believe.

They were bought by Phillips 66 about a year ago.

When opening the web site in chrome, I see the web site security certificate shows Phillips 66 Company US (it has for 6 months or more)

From Google-
What a security certificate is
When you go to a site that uses HTTPS (connection security), the website's server uses a certificate to prove the website's identity to browsers, like Chrome. Anyone can create a certificate claiming to be whatever website they want.

To help you stay on safe on the web, Chrome requires websites to use certificates from trusted organizations.

Well that's fantastic! Google says we can trust Phillips 66, so that's settled then. The great products they've always made will continue!

Great! So, no re-formulation took place.. rather, a new line added. This is helpful. Thank you so much!

Also, as to confirmation of the change in ownership.

You'd think that the new owners would have insisted that they switch to using bottles you can actually pour out of. Those cone-shaped things are brutal.
