This global change will take effect in South Africa from the 1st of January, 2013 – ensuring that you spend more time in your Land Rover and less time in workshops.
This change in maintenance period is attributed to the following:
Fuels have become less corrosive and cleaner to burn, thus making less damage to your Land Rover's engine parts like the cylinder block, the cylinder head valves, the variable intake manifolds and fuel pumps.
Lubricants have become more efficient, like the lower viscosity 5W30 synthetic oil that we've developed. Combined with the new reverse flow cooling system this ensures that oil reaches operating temperature 14% faster – moving parts now wear out less from friction and engine power isn't cannibalised. Your Land Rover's fuel consumption is also significantly improved while its engine warms up. Land Rover engineering is always improving, inside and out. Our engines now make use of hardier space-age alloys and plastics. Continued improvements in our engine management systems also improve fuel efficiency and reduce the rate of wear and tear of our engines.
