TOTAL QUARTZ 9000 FUTURE FGC 5W-30

Published:  03 March, 2018

TOTAL QUARTZ 9000 FUTURE FGC 5W-30 is specifically designed for petrol engines using Stop/Start technology, smaller engine sizes, turbocharging and, in some cases, electrification to create a hybrid system. As with the entire TOTAL QUARTZ line-up, 9000 FUTURE uses TOTAL’s Age Resistant Technology (ART). The formula fortifies anti-oxidation properties of the engine oil and therefore offers protection against sludge formation and wear. The 5W-30 oil grade combined with special additives helps to make cold starts easier and the low phosphorus content prevents three-way catalytic converters from damage and reduces NOx, HC emissions and CO2 emissions.

  • Electric future shock  

    The need to adapt to changing vehicle technology is one of the main challenges of our time in the sector. Increasing connectivity and a vastly more complicated conventional vehicle provide a whole raft of obstacles on their own, before you even get to the rise of electric vehicles and hybrids.

    Add to that a more uncertain legislative environment resulting from rules not quite keeping up with the technology coming in, and you’ve got yourself a whole host of issues that the entire industry needs to stay on top of if it is going to continue to offer a sterling service to customers.

    Let’s look at electric vehicles. For Tom Harrison Lord from Fox Agency, the b2b marketing company specialising in the automotive sector,  Automechanika Birmingham offered a troubling glimpse into the future:  “This summer’s Automechanika Birmingham was entertaining and enjoyable as ever, but it also exemplified a worrying trend in the motor industry today. With the advancement of electric vehicles, there are going to be some rapid and stark changes ahead. The automotive aftermarket, however, seems to be burying its head in the sand.”


    Access
    The key, as it has been in the past, is access. In this case, the right to be able to repair vehicles. Think that’s all sorted? Perhaps not:  “The rise of the electric cars and vehicles is something that could hit the automotive aftermarket hard – in particular, independent garages.

    “Many, if not all, electric vehicles invalidate their manufacturer warranty if essential work is carried out on the electrical systems by someone other than the main dealer. What’s more, many cars with batteries, such as the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, have warranties on the electrical components lasting up to ten years.

    “Having no choice but to use the main dealer for a full decade shows just why independent workshops will have fewer vehicles coming through the doors in the years ahead.”
