Shell Helix has partnered with Renault Uganda to conduct a free auto clinic for motorists. The two-day event which is being held at Shell Bugolobi will see motorists learn more about the latest engine technology as well as lubricants.
Addressing media, Alex Tusingwire, the Shell Brand Manager Lubricants, noted that the knowledge level on lubricants among motorists is limited and the auto-clinic will go a long way in reducing this gap.
“Many motorists do not know the role oil plays in their engines or the oil that is suitable for their car engine,” Tusingwire said. “We want to educate motorists about the different oil grades and what is suitable for their engines as well as benefits that oil lends to the engine and the value of using the right oil.”
The auto clinic will be conducted in a series of six events which will be held every fortnight at different shell fuel stations around Kampala with Kabalagala and Ntinda being next.
The auto clinics will also double as service clinics where motorists will receive advice from experts after inspecting their engines and the overall car health.
“The technology today has enabled global car manufacturers to make small but powerful engines. Such engines require the best oil and fuel for optimal performance.” Kaganzi said.
Paul Kaganzi is the Shell Ambassador and automotive mechanic who has experience in automotive.
