PQIA ISSUES CONSUMER ALERTS ON SUPER XXX and LIBERTY GOLD PLUS SMO

The Petroleum Quality Institute of America (PQIA) reported on January 7, 2013 that there are two brands of engine oils in the mid-west that consumers should avoid at any price.

These brands include Super XXX marketed by New World Sales in Midlothian, IL, and Liberty Gold Plus SMO sold by Pinnacle Brands, Chicago, IL. Whereas these products may be plentiful in convenience stores and priced a few cents lower than others on the shelf, PQIA says “they will likely cost you plenty in engine repairs if you use them.” Of primary concern pqiavidxxxis that the products tested have viscosities nearly 75% below their labeled specification. And in PQIA’s words, this oil sounds more like water when you shake the bottle than it does oil. To drive home that point, PQIA posted a video of the bottles being shaken.

CHECK OUT THE VIDEO ON THE PQIA WEBSITE – THE SOUND IS VERY TELLING.

More videos and the details of these brands are posted on PQIA’s website: www.pqiamerica.com
