Oil is no longer a general lubricant, but a highly specialized, liquid replacement part that has to precisely fit the corresponding engine. But finding your way through the crowded field of oil specifications, approvals and brands is not easy. The new oil guide by the German oil and additive specialist LIQUI MOLY at liqui-moly.us is intended to offer help quickly.
“The oil guide is the most popular part of our website,” said Günter Hiermaier, CEO of LIQUI MOLY. “Every day, 5,000 users search for the right oil here: Garage professionals and car drivers alike.”
Just a few clicks are enough to select the make, model and engine, and a list of the right motor oils will result. According to LIQUI MOLY, picking the right oil is so important because motor oil isn’t just motor oil anymore. “Using the wrong oil is like fitting the wrong replacement part. The consequences range from a loss of warranty to increased wear and engine problems right up to total engine failure,” the company noted in announcing the new guide.
The guide also lists the right gearbox oils, brake fluids, radiator antifreeze, power steering oils as well as other operating liquids. And not just for cars, but also for motorbikes, classic cars, commercial vehicles, construction equipment, agricultural vehicles and boats. It is more intuitive to use than its predecessor. Furthermore, a great deal has been improved behind the scenes and the database has been updated, says LIQUI MOLY. It now covers around 80,000 different vehicles.
“Our oil guide is particularly useful, because it covers more than just engine oils and we are also able to offer all of these liquids,” said Hiermaier. “Such a broad range of automotive chemicals makes LIQUI MOLY unique.”
