Beware Of Where You Buy Engine Oil by ping2ping: 10:20pm On Aug 10, 2014
People are very bad and desperate these days.
Some unpatriotic Nigerian move around mechanic workshops to collect different types of engine oil gallons. They refill them with locally made oil, put coloration and atimes fragrance, cork and sell to unsuspecting buyers. This is just inhuman.

A man came to a mechanic work to service his 3 cars. He already bought Mobile 1 from a filling station for the servicing. 1 month after seriving, one of suv had engine knock. When the mechanic checked the oil level, there was no oil in d engine and no leakage. On further investigation, it was discovered that the mobile 1 was refill.

These people colude with filling station attendants to sell these unwholsom engine oil. Please be careful not to spend your hard earned money to buy something that will destroy your engine.

Do not allow mechanic to buy oil for you. Buy only from trusted dealer outlets. Never buy enine oil from open markets.

It calls for vigilance

Somebody actually showed a fake AP Super-V engine oil and also Conoil. The Conoil was from the filling station while the AP was in the open market.

na wa for naija....People run to the petrol station to avoid fake from the open market. Now the petrol station are selling fakes too. The dumb mechanic changed the oil initially too should have known it was fake oil. oh well

Then people should start taking their cars to the dealers(e.g honda place, elizade, stallion e.t.c) for service or buy the oil and filter from the dealer then.
