Oil maker also big on charity
WHILE launching its range of lubricating products in Johannesburg last week, German boss of Liqui Moly pledged R10 from every can of motorbike oil would go towards feeding children in South Africa.
This is on top of the R1 from each purchase of a Liqui Moly product that already goes towards the company’s philanthropic programmes and local motor sport sponsorships.
Locally, Liqui Moly supports the Legends Series for 2015; female drifter Clare Vale; and rally champion Guy Botterill; Super drift, the Enduron class in the Historic series; Franco Scribante and George Avocomides in the Historic series; Pablo Clark Racing with Jaki Scheckter; the WCOC in Western Cape and numerous other teams and riders that will be announced at a later date.
There are now4 000 products in Liqui Moly’s line-up, ranging from engine oils, additives as well as vehicle care and service products.
Modern engine oils are high-tech and very specialised for certain models and certain engine types. Additives protect the engine and save money in wear and tear, plus servicing and repairs. Vehicle care products preserve the value of the vehicle and service products assist when it comes to repairs
General manager in SA Melicia Labuschagne said Liqui Moly has the right engine oil for every vehicle on the planet.
“On the local front we are the exclusive lube supplier to Subaru, Beta, Hyosung, and MV Augusta,” she said . “And even then there are differences; a manufacturer permit means that the oil fulfils certain minimum requirements. Liqui Moly goes beyond these minimum requirements and develops oils that, for example, have a higher cleaning performance than is demanded by the manufacturer.”
The company has a free app on its website to enable mechanics and private owners to choose the right oil for their vehicle. More on www.liqui-moly.co.za.
