Morris Lubricants sells more than 800 products, each tweaked and perfected for specific engines and cars.

Morris Lubricants automotive product manager Adrian Hill said it was vital to educate motorists about using the right oil in each vehicle.

He said: “People get in the habit of buying the same oil every time without ever really thinking about it.

“We need to educate people about using the right type of oil and the difference that can make to the way the engine performs.

“We are constantly developing new products to meet the needs of today’s cars and we are very proud of these new releases.”
