Using new resins, the com- pany has created a coating with a darker fnish and less porosity so there is virtually no chance of moisture migration, providing better corro- sion resistance, a better gravelometer rating and improved sprayability, according to the supplier.

Just turn the lever to drain oil, and the lever locks closed to prevent accidental openings, according to the company. The valve comes with optional hose ends that allow easy hose con- nections to drain oil away from the engine. Global Sales Group www.EZoildrain.com Motor oils can extend component life, improve fuel performance Duralec Super motor oils are made for EPA 2007 and 2010 emissions-equipped diesel engines requiring the use of emis- sions-compliant oil. The motor oils are formulated to maximize component life, extend drain intervals and improve fuel per- formance, company offcials said. The synthetic formulation has high temperature breakdown resistance and low temperature pumpability to minimize cold induced startup wear, according to the company. Royal Purple www.royalpurple.com
