Millers Oils shares advice for owners of unused cars

Millers Oils has released tips and advice for vehicles owners that are unable to use their car under current lockdown restrictions.

A Millers Oils spokesperson said: “Here at Millers Oils we’re not only passionate about our products but also the industries we work in.

“We have many staff who are passionate about cars and everything to do with them.

“A few of our experts (expertise in loving and caring for their cars) put their heads together and have come up with a guide on things you can do to help look after your car while it’s not being used.”

Tyres

If your car has been parked on the drive, road or garage for some time it is worth slightly inflating your tyres by approximately 3-5 psi above your normal driving pressure.

This will help to avoid tyre flat spots when parked for a considerable length of time.

Just remember to let them back down to recommended level for when you come back to getting it on the road.

Battery

Disconnect the negative battery terminal to stop the battery from draining completely meaning it will be dead the next time you use it.

Just make sure to reconnect it again when ready to hit the road.

Maintenance

Perform general maintenance checks on your vehicle to make sure it is all in working order, check things such as: all bulbs are working correctly, check tyres for legal try tread.

Fuel

Did you know when the fuel is left in the tank the volatile components, octane for petrol, cetane for diesel will start to reduce off.

To help with this you can add a fuel treatment to the tank during the lay up or just before you want to start using it again.

We recommend incorporating Millers Oils diesel or petrol power ecomax into your fuel top up routine.

This will help bring the fuel quality back up helping your engine run as normal once it is up and running on the road again.

Have your say!
