Motorists running risks with engine oil

Recent research has found around 66% of UK motorists do not realise they should change their oil annually.
Motorists running risks with engine oil

The study, organised by Kwik-Fit, indicated that over 21 million drivers are unaware that engine oil will expire, and that relying on old, unclean oil can actually damage their car.

Annual oil level checks are recommended by manufacturers, but it was found that as many as 3.7 million drivers think that a three year gap between oil checks is acceptable.  

Other startling data recorded by the research suggests that a million drivers have never changed their oil, with younger motorists the least likely to make this essential check.

Older drivers are, somewhat predictably, considerably safer, as 68% over the age of 65 ensure that the oil is checked and changed, compared with less than half of motorists ages 18 to 24.

Kwik Fit's director of communications Roger Griggs said: “‘These results are alarming, with many motorists admitting they pay very little attention to what is happening under their car’s bonnet.

“There seems to be a serious lack of knowledge when it comes to oil and this appears to be more common among younger motorists. These findings only confirm that more needs to be done to ensure people are aware of the problems and expense that neglecting regular oil changes can lead to.”
