RELEASES

Consumables like for example oils, brake fluids, etc., are subject among others to requirements of the engine and/or motor vehicle manufacturers. These standards are confirmed in the form of releases by the automobile manufacturers after having tested the respective consumables. Thus the users have clear indications as to which types of oils and/or consumables have basically been tested for this type of vehicle and have been released.
