  1. Hi all, just a quick heads up from Opies here. Sunday 2nd October marks the last race meeting of 2016 at Knockhill. As sad as it may be that the season is coming to a close, the final round of the Scottish Championship Car Racing Series is always a great event and goes out with a bang. Titles will be decided and awards will be won. It promises to be another fantastic installment of Car Racing at Knockhill, and Opie Oils have got a pair of tickets up for grabs! These tickets will provide you and a guest with entry to the event itself and hospitality with the legendary David Sleigh Racing Team. You will meet the team and hang out with them for the day, lunch will be provided within their race awning. It's a great opportunity to meet the professionals and see how they work. Not to mention being track side all day while the drivers pass at speeds in excess of 120mph. Sound like fun? Well, if you fancy being in with a chance to win these tickets, it's a pretty straight forward process - all you have to do is drop us a PM titled "Final Knockhill". In the message, please include your full name, address, telephone number and email address - this will ensure we can get in touch as quickly as possible after the winner has been selected. Please only apply if you are able to attend, as it would be a shame for them to go to waste.

  2. With summer coming to a close, autumn is just around the corner. Of course, once autumn is out of the way, we've got winter to look forward to, and we all know what the greatest danger to our vehicle over winter is...RUST! Opie Oils can help you keep the rust and corrosion at bay, thanks to our new star product, ACF-50 Anti Corrosion Formula and Corrosion Block. If you've got a car, motorbike or boat that you want to keep in pristine condition, then you may want to have a look below... ACF-50 Anti-Corrosion Formula ACF-50, Anti-Corrosion Formula, is a state of the art, anti-corrosion/lubricant compound, that has been specifically designed for the Aero Space Industry. It can be described as an ultra thin fluid film compound which must be applied on an annual basis. ACF-50 actively penetrates through the corrosion deposits to the base of the cell where it emulsifies and encapsulates the electrolyte, lifting it away from the metal surface. ACF-50 then dispels this moisture and provides an atmospheric barrier which prevents any further moisture contact, thereby keeping the cell inactive. This compound continues to actively penetrate and "creep" into the tightest of seams, lap joints, micro cracks and around rivet heads, dissipating the moisture, even salt water, in these corrosion prone areas. These unique abilities of ACF-50 remain effective for 12 months, gradually disappearing as it is chemically consumed. - Approved for use on Electronics - Non-Flamable, non-toxic - Contains NO solids - Remains "ACTIVE" for up to 12 months - Film thickness is 0.00026 - A blend of ultra-pure base stocks and speciality corrosion inhibitors and surfactants You can find further information and pricing HERE. Don't forget to use your forum discount to get an additional 10% off your order! All in all, this is a fantastic product that we are proud to stock - designed as an "all round" corrosion inhibitor that adapts to whatever task you throw at it. Available in a 13oz aerosol, 1 quart bottle (with refillable pump spray), 4 litre container and even a 20 litre drum which is perfect for the workshop. After a slightly thicker "grease" for your electrical contacts or wheel bearings on your trailer? Have a look below for the next great product from the same guys. Corrosion Block Anti-Corrosion Formula Grease It's no secret that equipment downtime, repair and replacement are expensive. It is also no secret that regular scheduled preventive maintenance is cheaper than the repair or replacement of expensive equipment. Available in a 57g tube and a 454g tub, you can view it HERE. In these days of dwindling maintenance budgets and closer scrutiny of operating costs and procedures, you can show a real saving through preventive control of corrosion. Corrosion Block can be described as a clean, clear, ultra-thin fluid which leaves a non-greasy atmospheric barrier to protect the base metal on interior surfaces. Corrosion Block leaves no gummy residue because it contains no wax, resin, tar, asphalt, silicone or telfon. Corrosion Block anti-corrosion compound is a state-of-the-art material developed for the marine industry. Corrosion Block has three superior features: 1. Superior Anti-Corrosion compound - Kills corrosion in progress - Prevents new corrosion cells from forming for 12-18 months 2. Works as an excellent penetrant 3. Performs as a light lubricant very effectively You're probably thinking "that's great, but can it isolate the corrosion byproduct from my beloved electrical circuits?" Well, yes. yes it can. As well as offering the mentioned benefits, it also has many electrical uses. Corrosion Block has the ability to remove moisture, combined with its excellent penetrating and strong dielectric properties, have brought a number of electronics 'back from the dead' with just one application. The Corrosion Block removes the moisture from the corrosion byproduct, then isolates the corrosion byproduct from the electrical circuit. Corrosion Block can be used in many different electrical and electronic applications without fear of damage. Corrosion block will not harm paint or plastic surfaces. We're sure you'll find this new range of anti-corrosion products to your liking - at Opies, we don't stock a product unless we have complete confidence in it, so it's got our seal of approval. If you fancy a look at the full range of our rust preventatives and anti-corrosion treatments, you can find them all HERE. That's about it from us for today. As always, should you need any advice, please feel free to give us a call on 01209 202 949 or drop us an email to sales@opieoils.co.uk and we'll be happy to help. We're in the office Monday to Friday, 8:30 - 5:30. Until next time! -Oilman

  8. Hi all VP Racing Fuels are a big deal over in the States - A household name and recognized by many as the world leader in race fuel technology, with a catalogue of nearly 70 fuel blends and a growing roster of VP-fueled champions across the entire spectrum of motorsports. As you can imagine, once their reputation began to spread internationally, we were pretty keen to get their products on the shelf at Opies. We were especially interested in their potent range of fuel additives, designed from the ground up to get the most from your engine. VP Racing Fuels was founded by Steve Burns, who initially exhibited his aptitude for R&D in the early 1970’s as a young racer in San Antonio, Texas. Steve was convinced the race fuel manufacturers of the day were falling short in their quest for optimum horsepower. To address this shortcoming, he began experimenting with exotic blends of fuel. Over time, this led to the development of their fuel enhancers and additives, or "madditives" as they are better known. Whether you are after an all-in-one diesel conditioner, octane boost for your race car or even an entire fuel system cleaner that will cover you for 5000 miles, there will be an additive that is designed to exceed your expectations. Have a look through the list below for the new products in this range, simply click on the product of interest for all details. Prices shown include your 10% forum discount code, which can usually be found in the signature. - VP Madditive Fuel Stabiliser with Ethanol Shield: Eliminates the problems caused by ethanol fuel while reducing heat and extending engine life.

VP’s Fuel System Cleaner increases fuel mileage, restores performance, and virtually eliminates knocks and pings. The advanced formula reduces harmful emissions in all street and off-road uses. 16 ounces treats up to 20 gallons. 16 oz bottle - £10.75 - VP Madditive Power Boost: Restore the power your engine once had. Cleans fuel system and removes deposits from the combustion chamber. Power Boost gives you a “seat-of-the-pants” jolt that makes driving fun again, while reducing the need for higher-octane gasoline. 16 ounces treats up to 18 gallons. 16 oz bottle - £9.85 - VP Madditive Diesel "All In One" Treatment: Get more out of your diesel engine with Diesel All-In-One Fuel Conditioner.

  13. I generally wouldn't use a flushing product unless the engine is a really mess with a lot of sludge. The detergents in a basic oil should clean it out fairly well and be a lot more gentle on the engine. Cheers Tim
  14. Hi It's fine to use a mineral oil to flush it, it's not in there long enough to be an issue. If it was me, I'd put it in, get it warm, leave it overnight to give the detergents time to work, then get it warm the day after and drain it. Cheers Tim
