During the current lockdown, Motul will be giving people the chance to really get to know their oil and lubricant products, the nuances of different specs and their benefits. 

The series of Facebook Live videos will be hosted by Hippocrates (Taki) Bogiages, Motul’s Business Technical Manager for Southern and Eastern Africa and Indian Ocean. There will be an initial series of six videos, each shown at 11h00 on alternate weekdays during April.

Taki is absolutely the right person to present this series of insightful and fascinating talks – not only does he hold a BSc in Chemistry, but he’s studying for his Honours Degree. He is also a member of the pro Pepson Plastics Motul Husqvarna race team. For Taki, choosing and using the right oils and lubricants is not just a career, but a passion. 

Aimed at workshop owners and technicians, pro racers, weekend warriors and indeed anyone with an interest in the more technical aspects and benefits of using the right Motul products, each video will look at the specifications of oils and lubricants and how to get the best out of them. 

“I’m delighted to have this opportunity to share my knowledge with the wider motoring community,” commented Taki. “The lockdown is a worrying and frustrating time for us all, but it’s also an opportunity to learn and to bond over our shared interests,” he added. 

“Everyone at Motul is excited to launch our first “Know Your Oil” initiative and help more people gain the knowledge and confidence they need to make better oil and lubricant choices,” commented Mercia Jansen, Motul Area Manager for Southern and Eastern Africa. “We’re also encouraging people to post any questions for Taki under each video post and Taki will respond to as many as he can, both during and after the video,” she added. 

The rest of the series of videos will be as follows: 
Monday 6 April – Engine oil standards API and ACEA
Wednesday 8 April – MC Care Range
Friday 10 April – MCO engine oil standards
Monday 13 April – The ins and outs of brake fluids, Dot 3 and 4 through to RBF700
All the videos (these and the previous ones) will be uploaded to Motul’s Facebook page where they will also be available to watch again after the Live viewing. Questions for Taki should be tagged with #KnowYourOil and #PoweredByMotul.
