True or False. Use manufacturer defined lubricant or void your warrantee?

We’ve all been told over and over again that you must use the lubricant specified by equipment manufacturers or you will void your warrantee. You may be surprised to learn that the answer here is false. You are not required to use the lubricant specified by the manufacturer in order to maintain your warrantee. The truth is that your warrantee will remain intact if you use an equivalent product, no matter the brand.

This issue has been a contentious one in the past. So much so that a consumer protection law had to be passed in 1975 to settle it. The law is called the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act. Among other things, this consumer protection law states, “Warranties cannot be voided by manufacturers, when using a product with the same specification”.

When you work with Lentus we want to make sure you get high quality lubricants from well-known brands that will excel when it comes to performance. We also want to ensure that your lubricating products are as cost effective as possible. Lucas Oil products provided by Lentus deliver in all of these categories.

Additionally, just to be sure your warrantee remains in place, if you provide Lentus with a sample of your specified lubricant we will deliver it to the Lucas Oil Labs to determine the exact specifications of your sample. Once determined, Lucas can re-create the components of your lubricant and provide it to you moving forward. Lucas will provide you with the cost-effective, high quality, American made lubricants you need.
