2014-02-18 13:15:00 - Improved classic range and consumer advice service to be launched at this year’s Race Retro
Yorkshire, England – Specialist oil developer and producer Millers Oils will introduce a new, High Performance Classic 20w50NT oil at Race Retro, Stoneleigh Park, February 21-23. The fully synthetic, low friction engine oil has been developed especially for high-performance classic vehicles providing better wear protection and increased efficiency over traditional oils. The company will also launch its new support service which will offer classic car owners advice on the oil requirements of their specific vehicles.
“Many classic car owners don’t realise that most post-war cars run just as well, if not better, on modern synthetic oils as they do on mineral oils,” says Nevil Hall, Joint Managing Director, Millers Oils. “We have the task of helping people to understand the durability
gains and other benefits that synthetic oils can provide. Race Retro provides an ideal opportunity to increase awareness of the crucial role modern oil development can play in extending the lifetime of classic engines.”
Reduced ZDDP additive levels work alongside Millers Oils’ proven nanotechnology package, providing both an exceptionally low friction engine oil and excellent oil film durability. This gives the dual benefit of improved friction through both the nanotechnology and the reduction of ZDDP. For instance, Millers Oils’ conventional CFS 10w60 has 1,200 ZDDP parts per million, whereas its CFS 10w60 NT has 1,000 ppm. However, the Nanodrive technology still offers exceptional anti-wear protection for older engines, something increasingly absent from modern oils.
The 20w50NT oil utilises nanotechnology in order to reduce overall running costs and extend component life by reducing friction by up to 63%, which in turn provides a reduction in wear by up to 38% compared to other synthetic oils of the same grade. These benefits all add up to enable classic owners to get the most out of their car, while also protecting their engine. The recent restructure of the Millers Oils classic range includes favourable price adjustments, allowing enthusiasts to get the best lubricants at an affordable price, further reducing overall running costs.
“As a classic car owner and enthusiast, it’s wonderful to watch interest in classics grow so strongly, but I’m passionate that cars are used as their makers intended, while still maintaining their value,” says Hall. “When investing heavily in a classic car, why wouldn’t you use the most advanced oil to maintain it? By developing and producing innovative oils for the classic market, we aim to enable owners to protect their investments, while at the same time enjoying them to the fullest extent.”
The company’s new advice service enables consumers to check what oil is best for their car by connecting directly to technical support staff at Millers Oils. This service will be available from February 21st via the email: firstname.lastname@example.org
