  1. Why do I need a special oil for my hybrid?

Sludge, corrosion and premature oil breakdown can shorten the life of your engine. Valvoline’s hybrid engine oil helps fight against these harmful conditions with a targeted booster package designed for the unique operating conditions of hybrid vehicles.
