If you normally purchase Aeroshell aviation oil in cases of twelve one-quart bottles, you might have noticed that inventory is limited, if available at all. This is because Aeroshell is phasing out 12-quart cases for many of its lubricants and have switched to 6-quart cases. Once inventory runs out, these larger cases will no longer be available.
Our affected lubricants include the following products:
Nothing else has changed with these products. Formulations, names, and bottle designs all remain the same. For the time being, our inventory of Aeroshell Oil 80, Aeroshell Oil W80, and Aeroshell Oil 65 have not been affected and 12/1-quart cases are still available.
If you require larger quantities of oil, we carry 55-gallon drums. For those located in the Northeastern United States and interested in larger quantities, we offer flat rate freight shipping for any product combinations under 2,000 pounds. Additionally, Phillips 66 X/C continues to sell aviation engine oil in 12/1-quart cases.
If you have any questions regarding this package change, don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer service team.

For those of you not "in-the-know," PSC stands for Petroleum Service Company. Yes, a third of the acronym is dedicated to "Petroleum", but another is dedicated to "Service" (and, obviously, the last third reserved for "Company," which -- while accurate -- doesn't thoroughly illustrate —the —close-knit, small-business-style atmosphere we've got going on here).P is for [...]
There probably aren't too many people who say that their favorite part of travelling is being at the airport. No, airports are busy and crowded and stressful (at least the big ones are, especially during the holidays). I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that no one actually enjoys the lines, the [...]

Commercial airliners are fast. A Boeing 747 can hit speeds of up to 550 mph. Spy jets like an SR-71 Blackbird are even faster. They can travel at over three times the speed of sound, somewhere around 2,700 mph. But how does something like the New Horizons deep-space probe compare?Believe it or not, the probe [...]
