A little flavour of what's in store...

When did you last check your engine oil?

We spotted this in a recent email communication and thought it was worth sharing with you...

"An astonishing 17 percent of UK drivers - or 5.13 million - never check their oil level and, as National Oil Check Week 2009 (June 15-19) is announced in a bid to encourage motorists to take better care of their vehicles, car care specialist Comma has re-launched its campaign website, www.checkyouroil.co.uk.

A further 56 percent of the 3,800 surveyed admitted they either don't have the time or simply forget to check it regularly.
With the very real threat of an average £1,413 engine repair bill, motorists' laziness is costing British motorists up to £300 million a year.

National Oil Check Week will be held as motor racing hero Lewis Hamilton prepares for his home Grand Prix at Silverstone on June 21. Mobil 1, technology partner to Hamilton's Vodafone McLaren Mercedes F1 team, has pledged its support for the campaign, along with the UK's leading car accessory chain, Halfords."
