You know how ever since you first were learning to drive your dad told you that you needed to have the oil changed in your car about every 5000 miles? Remember how every time you didn’t do it (and that was a lot) you felt guilty and like you were ruining your car? Well, as it turns out you may have been on to something, the oil in your car isn’t always bad, and doesn’t always need changing at 5000 miles, but how can you know for sure?
Welcome Lubricheck, after all, why spend time feeling guilty or dodging your dad (not to mention wasting time and spending money you don’t have)on unnecessary oil changes, when now you can easily test your oil anytime, at your convenience. Lubricheck will tell you in less than a minute, the quality of your motor’s oil before you make a trip to the shop. You’ll know for sure whether you need to change your oil, or not.
I think saving the Earth from thousands of unnecessary oil changes (and the resulting oil disposals) is not only a money saving benefit to us, but makes pretty good ecological sense as well. Lubricheck is able to measure the acidity of your oil, (as the oil degrades, acidity increases). Acidic oil can ‘pit’ the metal surfaces inside your engine and in such a situation you would require an oil change. Lubricheck can also detect contaminants in your oil, like metal particles, water or coolant. Luricheck is not only a tool that helps you save on oil changes, it actually can give you insight as to the “health” of your car.
Lubricheck is soon to be available for under 40 bucks, so visit the website at lubricheck.com to learn more about Lubricheck and its associated record keeping apps (Lubritrack) and to be updated on its release date. Would you feel comfortable not changing your engines oil?
