Oil Can Henry's is an oil-change shop based in Tualatin, Oregon, United States. Prior to being bought by Ashland Inc. in 2015, the company operated as a franchisor, and had locations in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California, Arizona, Colorado and Minnesota. After the acquisition, the shops were re-branded as Valvoline Instant Oil Change locations.
One feature of these shops is that they do not have waiting rooms; instead, customers watch the service from their car using a monitor that shows cameras from around the car. Employees are known for their uniforms that feature a bow tie and a newsboy cap. The company motto is "The One You Can Trust".
Oil Can Henry's was founded in 1978 by Marshall Stevens, a Tigard, Oregon, real estate developer. In 1988, the Shepanek family and friends purchased the company for $340,000, while Stevens continued to own franchises. Then named OCH International, the company began selling franchises in 1989. Sales at the company grew to $15 million in 1996.
The company was the nation's 18th largest oil change company in 1997. That year Oil Can Henry's signed a deal with Valvoline that included loan guarantees, payments to franchisees to help cover start-up costs, and a discount on oil. By April 2007, the company had grown to 67 locations, with ten of those as company-owned shops. Stevens had to sell 12 of 14 of his locations in 1991 due to financial problems.
Oil Can Henry's and its customers donated a total of $71,000 to the National Military Family Association in late 2014.
Oil Can Henry's and its franchisees donated $91,000 to the National Military Family Association in November, 2015. 
The company has locations in six different western states: Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Arizona, and Colorado. The majority of the shops are located in Oregon and Washington. Oil Can Henry's also offers a variety of other vehicle maintenance services in addition to oil changes.
