Oil maker also big on char­ity

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING - AL­WYN VILJOEN

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.
