  • Warren Oil Signs on as Platinum Sponsor of the Petroleum Quality Institute of America (PQIA)

    Metuchen, NJ - February 23, 2010 - The Petroleum Quality Institute of America announced today that Warren Oil has become its first lubricant manufacturer sponsor.

    Irvin Warren, President of Warren Oil says, "Warren Oil is proud to be the first PQIA sponsor and we strongly support its mission." In addition, Warren says, "PQIA is exactly what the lubricants business needs - independent data that shines light on the truth about the lubricant brands in the marketplace and helps separate the good from the bad." And instead of hiding such data behind closed doors, Warren says, "Warren Oil applauds PQIA for making brand specific data readily available on its website to consumers."By doing so, Warren adds, "Consumers now have what they need to help them make the right choices.

    PQIA President Thomas F. Glenn says it welcomes Warren Oil's sponsorship. Further Glenn says, "We were pleased to hear that in addition to Warren Oil's support, Warren welcomed testing of its lubricants." In fact, Glenn says, "Warren Oil encouraged PQIA to proactively test its products rather than waiting for them to come up in PQIA'S random selection." For this reason, Glenn says, "You can be sure there will be at least one Warren Oil lubricant tested in the next round." The first round of testing conducted by PQIA examined 10 major brands of 5W-30 engine oil. According to Glenn, "For these tests, the majors look good."
