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."
The Petroleum Quality Institute of America
(PQIA) is an independent resource for
information and insights on the quality and
performance of lubricants in the marketplace.
The institute tests and publishes brand
specific data on its website at
