Providence Oil is a top-tier Automotive Full Synthetic Motor Oils specially formulated for gasoline-powered light vehicles, such as vans, cars, sports utility vehicles, etc. Providence Oil is manufactured for Rural King, a farm and home store, and a general merchandise store in America. But who exactly makes Providence Oil? If you look at the packaging of Providence Oil, you will notice that there is no manufacturer indicated on its bottle aside from saying that it is manufactured for Rural King distribution. So many are wondering who the manufacturer, or the supplier of the said brand could be.

Providence Oil is private label brand owned by Rural King LLC. It is bottled and blended by Warren Oil. Warren Oil is a trusted oil supplier worldwide. They manufacture a broad range of lubricants, greases, and automotive chemicals, including Lubrigard brand, the Itasca brand, the Coastal brand, and the Gold Band.

There are also some speculations that Providence Oil was previously branded as Harvest King, and Rural King rebranded it as Providence Oil. The packaging of Harvest King and the oil itself is identical to Providence Oil. Let alone it is specially manufactured for Rural King distribution. However, there is no confirmation or any official statement regarding this matter.
