With complex, highly stressed engines such as Ford’s Ecoboost now common in cars approaching five years old, there is plenty of demand for the type of high-technology fluids that help keep them healthy.
Millers Oils managing director Steve Woolven said: “By focusing on the premium products that give our fleet, garage and trade customers the most exciting opportunities, we are successfully positioning Millers as the leading provider in this fast-growing sector.”
As vehicles become more complex with increasingly sensitive emissions equipment and highly stressed bearings and turbochargers, any owner fitting an economy oil – or a garage recommending one – is risking a potentially costly component failure.
Technical director Martyn Mann said: “A great example is the use of stop-start systems in modern vehicles.
“An engine fitted with stop-start technology is typically restarted around 500,000 times in its lifetime compared with just 50,000 without the system.
“The low-viscosity oils specified for these high-efficiency engines can drain off bearings and other components, leaving them vulnerable to excessive wear if an inappropriate specification is fitted.”
