Unipart Automotive has signed an agreement with Mobil to supply the Mobil 1 synthetic engine oil, through its distributor network from August 2010.
Wendy Williamson, Unipartâ€™s customer marketing director, said: â€œAs the technology of the modern petrol and diesel engine leads to longer service intervals, Unipart has played its part to reflect the changing requirements of the aftermarket sector.
â€œMobil 1 is a valuable addition to Unipartâ€™s extensive oil range, providing garages with even greater choice and enabling them to meet customersâ€™ precise servicing needs effectively.â€
The range will come in 20-litre, five-litre and one-litre sizes, while barrels of 208-litre Mobil 1 will be delivered directly to the customer.
Unipartâ€™s oil portfolio includes 31 grades and covers fully synthetic, semi-synthetic and mineral oils with an additional range of long-life products.
Larger workshops can specify 205-litre barrels or obtain bulk quantities from 400 litres up.
Mobil 1 branded products already meet the new ACEA 2008 specification requirements, and the remainder of the Unipart and Mobil range will comply by implementation in December 2010.
