Proven Quick Valve™ gives commercial vehicle fleets an easier oil change
Commercial vehicle maintenance just got easier as Quick Valve UK announces an enhancement
to their range of oil drain valves. The Quick Valve™ simply replaces the standard sump
plug and allows for a cleaner, quicker and easier oil change.
Quick Valve UK Ltd is the sole European after-market valve distributor of the Fumoto oil drain valve. The company is proud to announce the launch of its larger size valves across the UK and Europe. This means their product is now suitable for fitting to most vans, lorries, buses, coaches, tractors, heavy duty trucks and plant.
Fitting one of the valves to a vehicle is easy as Technical Director, Richard Griffiths, explains: “The valve screws in place of the traditional sump plug. It then takes the struggle and mess out of changing your engine oil as, unlike a sump plug which is removed every oil change, the valve stays in place to simplify servicing; you don’t even need to use any tools. Simply follow a four-step process of: unlocking the retaining lever; rotating the lever; allowing the oil to drain; closing the lever. It’s as easy as that.”
No mess, no hassle and no tools are required. Less workshop time means a serviced vehicle can return to the road much quicker, eliminating the traditional hassles associated with messy oil changes and stripped sump threads. The valves already have a proven track record in the commercial vehicle market having been used extensively across the USA where they are fitted at factory level to a variety of vehicles manufactured by Ford, Caterpillar and Freightliner in addition to being fitted as an after-sales accessory.
Managing Director, Mark O’Hanlon, explains: “The oil drain valves are the patented design of Fumoto Engineering of Japan; over 7 million valves have been sold worldwide. They are suitable for being fitted to most vehicles and the valves even have the proud distinction of having been granted ‘genuine part’ status by leading vehicle manufacturers Nissan, Mitsubishi, Toyota, Isuzu, Subaru and Mazda. This is a huge testimony to the reliability and durability of the product.”
The Quick Valve™ provides a practical solution to a longstanding problem and can be purchased from Quick Valve UK Ltd, a mail order company based in the UK, from as little as £16.64 (excluding VAT) from the company’s website: www.quickvalve.co.uk.
