Chevron unveils motor oil dispensing system

Chevron says its new PitPack motor oil dispensing system helps technicians more efficiently store and deliver oil to vehicles.

Chevron Products Co., manufacturer of Havoline brand engine oils, has introduced a motor oil dispensing system called Chevron PitPack that is designed to increase efficiency and profitability while reducing waste.

The company says the PitPack system can reduce landfill waste by up to 89% by using six-gallon plastic bags and recyclable corrugate boxes of motor oil rather than individual plastic quart bottles. This package can reduce a car’s time needed in a service bay by dispensing motor oil quickly from the boxes via a high-flow, no drip tap.

Chevron’s PitPack rack also has a unique shelf design to keep fluid spills from reaching the floor and allows for easy clean up in fast-paced shop environments.

The upright PitPack rack system takes up approximately half the space of the equivalent volume of quart cases. It is a bulk-type alternative for locations where adding another tank is not viable and space for a 55-gallon drum is not available.

The company says the product helps technicians manage the complexity associated with the growing number of premium products (synthetics, synthetic blends, and high mileage).

Michael Griffith, vice president of Port Consolidated Inc., a Chevron distributor says his company benefits from an increased ability to penetrate accounts with specialty lubricants and a reduction in delivery frequency as opposed to typical case goods.

“Our installers benefit from better inventory control, lower cost of goods, and faster turn times. Additionally, the end users like the fact that they are doing their part to help the environment by doing business with a facility that reduces waste,” says Griffith.

 Dave Schletewitz, Havoline North America brand manager at Chevron, says the PitPack system can deliver significant operational efficiencies, at a lower cost than dealing with quart packages, all with strong environmental benefits.

“This eight-box rack system significantly reduces plastic waste by holding the equivalent of 192 plastic quart bottles in its 100% recyclable corrugate boxes.

"It’s a win-win for businesses looking to improve profits, efficiency and their environmental stewardship and a win for consumers who want to spend their dollars with businesses that are committed to reducing waste in their community.”
