Liqui-Moly is one of Europe’s leading brands of high quality lubricants and oil & fuel additives. Founded in Germany over 50 years ago, Liqui-Moly pioneered the use of Molybdenum
Disulfide (MoS2, a molecule with ultra low friction) for automotive
applications. This development set the standard globally in low
friction oil additives. Our
breakthrough formulations are developed, tested and certified to the
exacting standards you would expect of a leading German manufacturer.
Claims of performance are
easy to make but rarely proven by TUV Certificationindependent
evaluation. The German Technical Supervision Association (TUV) is one
of the most respected testing centres in the world. TUV has thoroughly
tested numerous Liqui-Moly products and the effectiveness has been
verified and certified accordingly.
Wear and Tear
For every kilometre you
drive you pay with a tiny piece of the engine through wear and tear
and this is the major reason why we change our vehicle’s engine oil
Below Its Best
The colour of the oil that goes into your engine is not the same colour that is drained out during an oil change.
This is a direct result of the wear caused by moving metal parts and
the oxidation from the combustion cycle mixing with the lubricating oil.
Combined with normal production line irregularities and longer
intervals between engine servicing, this all adds up to an engine
functioning below its best.
Based on normal driving
habits, an engines ‘sweet spot’ or optimum performance and efficiency,
starts from the end of the run-in period (around 3,000 km’s) through
to the engines first service (generally 10,000 to 15,000 km’s). After
that period, engine wear and fuel contamination have occurred even if
you don’t actually notice the deterioration.
With all these factors in
play, you come to realise that there is always scope for improvement,
even if the car is new or still being serviced by a dealer or
