The Australian and New Zealand populations are driving more hybrid vehicles than ever. In Australia, around one in ten and in New Zealand, around one out of every five new passenger cars sold is a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or battery electric vehicle, significantly increasing market share over the past three years.
Not all lubricant requirements for commercial power generators are the same. Their choice depends on a wide range of factors, including the type of generator, operating conditions, and the type of fuel used.
If you drive a newer (est. post 2010) diesel-powered car or ute, then located in the exhaust system will likely be a diesel particulate filter (DPF). Key to the DPF's operation is a large honeycomb-like filter, through which exhaust gases are passed to capture and trap exhaust soot and other nasty particles.
Marine and automotive engine oils are not interchangeable. The two primary reasons for this are water and wear. Consider that corrosion caused by water is a primary concern for marine engines.
The precise 2 stroke oil ratio depends on your manufacturer’s instructions, as each engine can have varied requirements. If you put too much oil, it can generate additional carbon build-up, making it difficult to start the engine.
2 stroke engines use a crankcase to pressurize the air-fuel mixture before transfer to the cylinder. Unlike 4 stroke engines, they cannot be lubricated by oil contained in the crankcase and sump: lubricating oil would be swept up and burnt with the fuel.
Maintaining your truck or fleet has to be one of your top priorities. One of the first maintenance tasks is choosing the correct truck fluids and lubricants. There are several fluids, lubricants and greases that are required for a reliable heavy duty drive.
Owners of trucks and truck fleets face various challenges daily, one of them being the efficient maintenance of their equipment. Moreover, they aim to achieve optimal durability, efficiency, and performance of their heavy duty vehicles that can stand the most adverse conditions.

An engine coolant is a liquid crucial for the operation of any type of engine. The term coolant is used interchangeably with antifreeze. Moreover, coolant is a more common term in warm climate areas, while the term antifreeze is more common in cold climate areas.
Modern agricultural machinery, including tractors, harrows, combine harvesters, balers, fertiliser spreaders, grape harvesting machines, and corn-pickers, are constantly exposed to heavy usage, extreme temperatures, humidity, and harsh working conditions.
