While you may have learned basic lessons about vehicle maintenance, the same lessons likely weren’t taught in regards to grease and lubricants. This article has some great information to help you choose the right grease for the job. It is no surprise that the majority of motorists don’t know about engine or vehicle grease, given that it’s largely a product used when a mechanic provides regular maintenance. However, this doesn’t mean that its use is limited to mechanic workshops or that you can’t take over the maintenance task yourself.

Choosing the Right Grease Matters

If you are interested to learn more about what grease is and the type which you should be using in your vehicle, along with where to find the best grease for the job, Progressive Products has just the post for you!

Grease and Lubricant for Racing Vehicles

The first place to start is with the vehicles which rely on grease the most - racing vehicles. Why? For these vehicle owners, the emphasis is placed entirely on speed, causing a significant amount of friction to occur through various parts of the vehicle’s engine and body as the vehicle races around the track, be it paved or dirt. Of course, if you learned anything from your science lessons in school it was that the more friction which occurs between two objects, the slower those objects travel. Products like AMSOIL's DOMINATOR® Synthetic Racing Grease are designed to address this high level of friction through the selection and inclusion of purpose designed additives. When in action, products like these reduce friction by providing a film between each object, promoting smooth operation. Click here to buy AMSOIL’s DOMINATOR® Synthetic Racing Grease or to learn more about this and the range of high-quality AMSOIL products available for your vehicle. If you aren’t sure which is the right product for you, don’t hesitate to call Progressive Products at (425) 483-2582.

Trailer and the Vehicles They Carry

If you are lucky enough to own an ATV or similar vehicle then the chances are that you also own a trailer to tow it around. Of course, just like all vehicles, if you don’t keep it in good shape then it isn’t going to be much help when the time comes for you to use it. With this in mind, consider its use and use the right grease. In the example, of a trailer, if you are using it to tow a boat then consider the amount of water contact that it will have as you lower the boat into the water. While it may only be for a few minutes, this can be all that it takes for debris and salt in the water to make its way into your ball bearings and joints and cause some serious damage. For this use case, the best product would be on like  AMSOIL's Synthetic Water Resistant Grease which has been designed to seal metal surfaces and provide protection against corrosion. Of course, the primary purpose of this grease is to prevent wash out, and that’s exactly what it excels at.

Trucks

If you own or even operate a fleet of trucks then you that every bit of downtime can affect how efficient your fleet can operate. One of the biggest challenges for a fleet owner is extending the time between maintenance, working to keep vehicles on the road for longer. For this, products like AMSOIL’s Synthetic Polymeric Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease, NLGI #1 is a great choice. Taking advantage of exclusive synthetic polymeric technology, this product stays exactly where it needs to be for longer under heavy use.
