Prestigious seal of approval for Millers Oils’ XF Longlife engine oil
Jaguar Land Rover certifies Millers Oils’ high-performance lubricant
Brighouse, Yorkshire - Jaguar Land Rover is the latest premium vehicle manufacturer (VM) to approve Millers Oils’ XF Longlife engine oil for use in its vehicles. The British oil developer’s high-performance lubricant has previously been recognised by Volkswagen, Porsche, BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
“To be certified as suitable for use in some of the best vehicles in the world is a great recognition of the quality of XF Longlife,” says Martyn Mann, Technical Director, Millers Oils. “It also assures customers that our products protect components and support the service intervals specified by the VMs.”
VM-approved oils provide garages and vehicle owners with assurance that the oil is not only of the correct grade but also of a suitable standard for the chosen application. The approval process is rigorous and can take months, with samples of the lubricant subjected to a series of gruelling engine tests to ensure that it meets the high standards required.
“Legislation changes are increasing the pressure on VMs to produce more efficient and technologically advanced vehicles and powertrain technology is at the heart of this challenge,” says Martyn Mann. “Advanced lubricants that maintain performance and protect components to the highest level are increasingly important in both the OE (Original Equipment) and aftermarket sectors and with the recent £500,000 investment at our research and development centre in Yorkshire, Millers Oils’ is even better equipped to meet this demand.”
Notes to Editors
XF Longlife is an engine oil range produced by Millers Oils and it is coincidental that Jaguar Land Rover has a XF model.
About Millers Oils
Millers Oils was founded in 1887 by John Watson Miller, and since then the company has displayed a talent for innovation and industry firsts. It was the first to offer diesel specific engine oil for cars and continues to push boundaries to earn its place as a world leader in the technology of low friction. In January 2012, Millers Oils launched nanotechnology engine oils. When tested against a competitor’s oil of the same viscosity, Nanodrive recorded 40% lower friction at operating temperatures of 110°C, with significantly improved film strength. Millers Oils uses the expertise gained in motorsport and performance car development to ensure it remains a leader in automotive and commercial vehicle oils Millers Oils devotes an equivalent R &D effort to its broad range of industrial lubricants, most recently into hydraulic oil subjected to spot operating temperatures of +130 C in systems fitted with nitrogen accumulators used in offshore drilling operations. The resulting Millers Oils product is now in international use.
