Texaco

Texaco was the name of an American oil company that has merged into ChevronTexaco. It began as the Texas Fuel Company, founded in 1901 Beaumont, Texas upon didscovery of the very first major gusher by Antony Lucich-Lucas. For many years, Texaco was the only company selling gasoline in all 50 states, but this is no longer true. Its logo features a white star in a red circle, leading to the long-running advertising jingles "You can trust your car to the man who wears the star." and "Star of the American Road."

Texaco is associated with the Havoline brand of motor oil and other automotive products. It is one of the sponsors of NASCAR.

Texaco's patented gasoline additive is called CleanSystem3.
