CLASSIC PROTECTION

Classic Valvemaster – the fuel additive that saves kit classic cars from ethanol-rich petrol especially with the advent of E10 petrol in the UK from September 1.

When it comes to liquid engineering, internal combustion engines rely on quality oil and quality fuel to run efficiently. Over the years, however, tightening emissions regulations have forced changes within the petrol industry and altered the formula of standard fuel.

Leaded petrol disappeared from UK forecourts at the turn of the millennium, E5 biofuel was standardised in 2019, and in September 2021 the recipe of standard grade unleaded petrol is changing to double the content More >

Merlin Motorsport chock full of Laminova Heat Exchangers – these are an alternative and very effective way of cooling your engine oil. In basic terms, the Laminova is a billet aluminium housing that is connected to the oil lines and the coolant (water) lines.

The oil circulates around the outside of the housing and core while the water passes through the centre of the core. The oil temperature is usually greater than the water temperature, so the water draws the heat from the oil.

The Laminova has many advantages: they are more compact than using a conventional air-to-oil cooler meaning it can More >
