Millers Oils have launched an innovative new product during a special event at the home of British Racing.
The Rastrick specialist oil developer and producer introduced its Flowcontrol bottle at Silverstone.
The container, with its easy-pour mechanism, revolutionises bottle design by enabling the user to control oil flow without the use of a funnel, preventing contamination and spills.
The design follows Millers Oils’ recognition of the difficulties and issues consumers face when topping up and changing oil at home.
“An independent test has shown that 80 per cent of cars that go into garages are low on oil,” said Mark Berry, business development manager.
“Many consumers may have concerns about topping up oil at home because it can be complicated and messy.
“The new easy-pour bottle allows owners to control the flow of oil, preventing spillage, over-filling and the risk of contamination that can occur when using funnels to distribute oil, reducing the risk of damage to components.”
Owners often use one funnel for various purposes at home, such as topping up engine oil in multiple cars or filling the lawnmower.
This can lead to contamination of the oil which can cause expensive component damage.
The Flowcontrol bottle combats this and enables consumers to top-up or change engine oil at home, with ease and confidence.
