Since 1979, the privately-held Red Line Synthetic Oil Corporation has grown
to manufacture over 80 quality products, including motor oils, gear oils,
assembly lubes, fuel additives, and its popular WaterWetter cooling additive
for the automotive, motorcycle, marine, and industrial markets. Based in
Benicia, California, the company earned a reputation with racers and enthusiasts
alike for creating products that perform and protect better than any on
the market, regardless of price.
Originally founded by president Tim Kerrigan and Peter
Filice (retired) to produce lubricants for the racing
industry, Red Line Oil now distributes a diverse line
of products in North America, Europe, Australia, and
Developing and marketing among the most sophisticated
lubricants in the world, Red Line’s products
are designed to literally outperform for the task at
hand. In 1986, the addition of Cornell-degreed Roy
Howell as chief chemist brought Red Line Synthetic
Oil Corporation into a league of its own, with a knowledge
of available technologies, an ability to respond to
technical challenges, and the ability to satisfy the
needs of the performance industry.
Red Line Oil’s team of chemists and blenders
formulate fully-synthetic oils and chemically-advanced
additives using only the world’s finest base
stocks. This makes Red Line Oil the premium product
on the shelf. It’s not designed to be the cheapest—it’s
built to be the best. Rather than cutting costs by
blending into polyalphaolefin base stock for its motor
oil, Red Line Oil only uses superior poly ester-based
products—resulting in lubricants that are extremely
stable at high temperatures while providing superior
film strength at lower viscosities where more power
can be produced.
The world’s top racing teams and most discriminating
enthusiasts use Red Line Oil products exclusively.

chances are its Red Line Oil on the inside.
