Unipart Branded Motor Oil has been a major element of Unipart Brand development over the last 30 years, with Formula 1 sponsorship and TV adverts featuring Nikki Lauda and John Watson being shown over 25 years ago.
In those days, a 20w50 Oil covered almost all vehicles on the roads in the UK-a situation that has changed radically since.
Now, almost every manufacturer specifies its own formulation of Oil.
The consequences for the Independent Garage owner are significant. The days when a Bulk Oil tanker arrives and delivers a single grade of Oil are fast disappearing, in favour of smaller volumes of a multiple of different grades and formulations.
It may be tempting to provide a less expensive and less sophisticated Oil for a car to keep the customer’s bill to a minimum, but the consequences for the garage may be severe.
With the cars of today, using the correct Oil has never been more important, because incorrect oil can cause:
- Poor fuel economy
- Higher Emissions (MOT Failure)
- EGR Valve blockage
- Turbo charger failure
- Catalyst Failure
- Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Failure
Turbocharger and DPF failure in particular can cost you thousands, so every garage needs to protect their customer and themselves by using the correctly specified Oil.
