Jackson Oil hosted the Chevron Delo Truck on Friday, September 19th.  The state-of-the-art interior experience offered lots of attention-drawing features including: Nineteen interactive educational stations including touch screen videos and product presentations. Detroit Diesel cut-away engine to illustrate latest in technology. A video booth to capture and share visitors’ Delo experience.   The interactive truck was a great way to showcase premium Delo engine oils, lubricants, and coolants. The truck started an open dialog between the customers and their salesman. After the customers were done touring the truck, the salesman took them through our other 6 booths. The booths were Fuel Polishing, Racing, DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid), Equipment/FuelMaster, Polaris – oil/lubricant analysis, and Palmer Trucks. The Fuel Polishing/Filtering booth was led by Mike Klepfer, our fuel filtering guru! He was able to not only talk about the benefits of being on a fuel filtering program, but he was able to […]

Larry and Phillip Balliet are a father-son truck pulling team from Avilla, Indiana. Collectively, the two have been racing for decades and have a rich history of pulling two- and four-wheeler Chevy trucks. Both are loyal to Kendall Motor Oil, using the product not only for their racing trucks, but also on the farm for their tractors. With that said, we are very excited to share that Larry and Phillip were named Team Kendall’s Racers of the month for September! The two pride themselves on building great racing vehicles and note that Kendall Motor Oil has been a huge help protecting their engines for many years. “We’re like the David of David & Goliath in most of these races,” said Phillip. “We don’t have a team that makes our trucks run well. We are our own team. We build our trucks and engines with our own hands and rely on good products […]

A recent National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) laboratory study suggests that “many” of the sump pumps for underground storage tanks at gas stations could corrode more rapidly than expected. NIST, a non-regulatory federal agency within the U.S. Department of Commerce, duplicated conditions similar to those found around the sump pump for tank systems to determine the potential corrosion rate. The study “demonstrated severe corrosion rapidly eating through 1 millimeter of wall thickness per year on steel alloy samples exposed to ethanol and acetic acid vapors,” NIST said. “Gas stations may need to replace submersible pump casings, typically made of steel or cast iron, sooner than expected.” The laboratory study was prompted by recent reports from field inspectors in nine states suggesting there were “many” rapidly corroding gasoline storage tank components such as sump pumps, NIST said in an announcement. The incidents are “generally” linked to the use of […]
