The new range comes in smaller pack sizes

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, Unipart’s customer marketing director, said: “As 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.

“Mobil 1 is a valuable addition to Unipart’s extensive oil range, providing garages with even greater choice and enabling them to meet customers’ precise servicing needs effectively.”

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.

Unipart’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.
