Protect the Classics
Classic Shell X-100 Motor Oils are now available for sale in North America and formulated to meet the needs of older engines including classic and vintage vehicles. The entire formulation is tailored as a complete protection system, not just regular or multi-grade oil boosted with a zinc additive.
Key benefits of Shell X-100 Classic Motor Oils include high levels of ZDDP anti-wear additives, superior oil film resilience and anti-wear protection at high load conditions. It provides excellent lubrication and protection of engine components where oil films are thinnest, while controlling deposits and minimal sludge formation with enhanced detergent and dispersant concentrations optimized for performance in older engines to protect against humidity changes during storage which can cause rust. Shell X-100 is a longer lasting lubricant due to high quality Group I mineral oil combined with anti-oxidants that minimize degradation and oil thickening and meets the most relevant engine lubricant specification (API SF/CC). It is currently available in SAE 30 mono grade and SAE 20W-50 multi-grade.

Suck Up Spills
Having been in development for three years, SpillVak has taken the time necessary to understand what their oil and lube customer needs and have developed a family of products that directly answers those needs.
SpillVak is currently available in two different formats; loose and crumbles, and two different formulas for varying viscosities; HV for high viscosity fluids and LV for low viscosity fluids, with the separation point being a viscosity similar to that of brake or power steering fluid.
Further, SpillVak has been working with an independent lab and has recently surpassed EPA leachate standards, meaning SpillVak may be discarded with non-hazardous waste. SpillVak always recommends that customers check with their local municipalities to ensure compliance with all applicable laws.

No Seeps, No Leaks
Oil leaks on older, high-mileage vehicles are usually the result of aging seals and gaskets that are losing the ability to keep oil from seeping out of the engine. Unfortunately for the owners of these vehicles, finding the cause of the leak and then replacing the bad seal or gasket is a time-consuming and expensive job. For customers who can’t afford a mechanical repair, Bar’s Leaks has an inexpensive solution. New Bar’s Leaks Professional Main Seal Motor Oil Leak Repair is a high-tech synthetic blend of seal restorer additives and polymers to stop all engine oil leaks.
Oil leaks commonly occur as engine seals harden and shrink from the plasticizers being removed over time, and as the miles add up. Extended storage can also cause drying and hardening of seals, leading to shrinking, cracking and consequently leaking. Other oil stop leaks on the market can stop some leaks, but not all of them. Some may even degrade the motor oil.
Bar’s Leaks Main Seal Motor Oil Leak Repair works in two ways to solve engine oil leaks originating at the rear or front main seal, as well as camshaft, crankshaft and timing cover seals. It has a specially engineered seal-rejuvenating additive that restores seal size, flexibility and elasticity lost due to engine heat, age and high mileage. The packaging contains an advanced seal polymer additive that works by building a polymeric film around the seal to help prevent excess oil from bypassing the seal during normal engine operation.
Bar’s Leaks Main Seal Motor Oil Leak Repair is safe to use in all gasoline, diesel, turbocharged and racing engines. It works with all types of motor oil, including regular petroleum, high mileage, synthetic blends and fully synthetic. A 1 quart bottle treats oil capacity from 5 to 7 quarts and can easily replace a quart of oil when needed or during an oil change.

Heat It Up
EnergyLogic specializes in building cost-effective, energy-efficient economic waste oil heaters. These have the highest redeemable heat rise temper
atures available, ranging from approximately 110–120 degrees compared to the standard 60 degrees. They burn the widest range of fuels (including synthetic oils), varying from 5–90W. Complete combustion is achieved through a patented flame retention head that allows the heaters to minimize ash and leftover contaminants, producing cleaner burning oil.
The heaters are designed with a unique swing-away burner and ash removal port for simple maintenance and longer periods between cleanings. They take 30 minutes or less to clean. One large stainless steel heat exchanger enables this product to withstand high temperatures of about 1,500 degrees, as well as other heat degradation issues, for decades.
Heaters are made in many sizes to accommodate a growing market and variety of customer needs. EnergyLogic also has the largest selection of heater accessories compared to other models. Combined, these features create a clean-burning, cost-effective waste oil heater.

Guaranteed for all vehicles, Prestone recently released its antifreeze/coolant with patented Cor-Guard corrosion inhibitors that protect against corrosion, deliver longer engine life and keep cooling systems running more efficiently.
Prestone’s Cor-Guard formula reduces the risk of breakdowns and keeps engines free from the damaging effects of worn-out antifreeze. Corrosion is
the enemy of any cooling system, robbing engines of performance and causing premature failure. Prestone offers a unique solution to this issue through this patented corrosion inhibitor package, preventing corrosion from forming on water pumps and radiators.
This formula is a result of seven years of research and development at the Prestone Innovation Center. It improves existing technology while maintaining the versatility to work in any car and light-duty truck.
Prestone’s Cor-Guard formula is available in two products: Prestone Concentrate Antifreeze/Coolant and Prestone 50/50 Prediluted
Antifreeze/Coolant. Prestone Concentrate Antifreeze/Coolant should only be used to fill radiators after a thorough flush and clean. Alternatively, Prestone 50/50 Prediluted Antifreeze/Coolant is a quick and convenient way to top off a car’s cooling system with the protection of Prestone’s Cor-Guard formula. It can be added to any existing fluid to optimize the cooling system.
