TV Show Investigates The Fake Oil Market Of Pakistan While PSO Fined For Poor Diesel Quality

Engine oil is an important component of your engine that makes sure your engine runs smooth and trouble free. It is like the blood flowing through different parts of the engine. Motor oil not only reduces the friction between the moving parts of the engine, but it also dissipates the heat. A good engine oil is crucial in cases where you need air to cool down the engines, for example, single cylinder motorcycle engines. Therefore it is paramount that you get the best available engine oil for your vehicle. And it’s not just about the best available option; it is also about buying an authentic and real product.

    The article somehow puts forth the idea that quality of engine oil is important only in air-cooled engines.

    And then the article recommends buying an authentic product and avoiding forgeries, but falls short on the ‘HOW’? How to recognize the forgeries? Where to go to buy the authentic oil?
