The Ulm, Germany-based oil and additive specialist Liqui Moly says it has completely revised its app that provides information on the right motor oil for a particular vehicle. The Liqui Moly app is available free of charge for iOS and Android.
Liqui Moly says the centerpiece of the new app is the oil guide. Users can enter the brand, model and engine type of their vehicle, and the guide indicates which oil to select. The company says the app prevents users from putting the wrong oil in the vehicle, which would be like using the wrong spare part and can result in severe engine damage. The app also provides details of the other operating liquids the vehicle requires, such as oil for the transmission, power steering, brake fluid and antifreeze.
Liqui Moly says the large number of oil specifications now make it difficult for people to keep track of. “This is why the app is so useful for any motorist who is at a loss when confronted with a long shelf of different oils or an apparently endless choice of options to click on in an online shop,” says Harry Hartkorn, the head of application technology with Liqui Moly. “And for professionals it clears up any uncertainties – whether in the garage or when selling products to drivers.”
The app also shows where Liqui Moly products are available, provides background information on oils and additives and also features the latest news from the company. It has been newly developed, and the company says it is now more streamlined and intuitive to use than the predecessor version. It is available free of charge in English, German, French, Spanish, Dutch, Norwegian, Finnish, Swedish, Portuguese, Russian and Italian from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
