European Car Formula Evolves

The European Car Formula Synthetic Motor Oil labels are being revised slightly, removing the focus from SAPS levels and placing it on something easier for customers to understand: emissions system protection. The European Car Formula products will be referred to as the following:

Labels reflecting the changes will begin appearing as inventory of European Car Formula products with current labels is depleted.

In addition, five-liter packaging is discontinued and available while supplies last. Affected European Car Formula products are available in gallons effective Dec. 1.

· Chrysler MS-11106
· dexos2™

The new formulation will be available in quarts and drums once the current formulation sells out. Forecasts predict the current formulation to last through January. Watch the Dealer Zone for an announcement of availability. The new formulation is available in gallons effective Dec. 1.

European Car Formula 5W-40 Classic ESP Synthetic Motor Oil (EFM) now carries the following additional manufacturer approvals:

· MB-Approval 229.5
· Porsche A40

AMSOIL Launches New Lead-Handling Process

On Dec. 1 AMSOIL launched a new process to nurture leads who request information about AMSOIL. This process affects all customer and Dealer leads and was carefully designed to improve conversions and maintain the prospect-Dealer relationship.

The new process uses automated marketing software to nurture leads and pass them onto T-1 Certified Dealers when they convert to paying customers or AMSOIL Dealers. It’s important to note that leads who indicate a specific Dealer when they make contact with AMSOIL will be handed off to the Dealer they reference once they convert. Dealers will be able to see Dealer lead information, but we ask that Dealers keep in mind that leads are automatically receiving nurturing emails from AMSOIL and that additional emails may be considered spam, potentially causing Dealers to lose Dealer leads.

For an explanation of the new lead-handling process, see the October AMSOIL Magazine. More information will be available in the December AMSOIL Magazine.
