Have recent oil shortages really plunged the automotive aftermarket into the dark days of the 1970s (bell bottom overalls, anyone?), or is there more to be optimistic about as the true worth of engine oil is finally acknowledged? This month, the PMM podcast takes you on a journey to find out all about oil – the secret ingredient making cars more efficient than ever. In the episode, Mike Bewsey, Chairman of the Verification of Lubrication Specifications, demystifies some of the jargon surrounding oils and explains why they’re getting so complicated. Meanwhile, Witham Group’s Nigel Bottom offers some interesting insights into the automotive lubricants industry.  

News & Products Editor Freya Coleman brings you the latest updates on the ongoing battle over MOTs, whilst Editor of PMF, Tom Henman sits down for a chat with a Scottish motor factor to discuss parts shortages and the importance of supporting local businesses.  

Thanks go to this month’s sponsor, Delphi Technologies – happy listening!
