Oil from natural gas

Shell has released a first-of-its-kind synthetic motor oil made from natural gas. Pennzoil Platinum and Ultra Platinum are made using PurePlus Technology, which converts natural gas into oil. The company says the oil keeps pistons up to 40 percent cleaner than the industry standard.
