Five years ago I bought a secondhand, 1998 model car for 40,000. It accrued a total distance of 168,000 kms from its former owner. It was a bit old, it’s journey has been long and showing signs of aging. But most of all, It was the only good deal I could afford.
Since starting college six years ago, I dreamed of driving my own car. I have been researching for this kind of car for many years and I knew the moment I bought it that it will have clanks, chugs and various signs of wear and tear.
In the Beginning.
I was surprised the car was smooth. The gears were working great, the acceleration was superb and it seemed as if it was well-maintained. It was. Until I reached 4,500 kilometers and an emission test from the LTO. All hell brook loose.
My car failed the emission test by a mile. The attendant recommended that I change my oil since it was puking poisonous gas or else I won’t be able to renew my license.
The oil change was a bit pricey for my budget. Also, I needed to replace several parts I cannot remember anymore. I felt I have been ripped off by the previous owner and the car manufacturer for the pricey and forceful maintenance my car would have to undergo. It was hard to bear and being a junior executive with a limited income, it somehow drained my resources.
Finding the Best Partner for My Car
I was intent on researching various solutions to my problem. I knew that there is a something to this somehow. The casa I brought my car to recommended that I replace my oil to synthetic. They recommended a synthetic oil for my car which promised a higher mileage and lower carbon emission.
With the synthetic oil, I nearly reached the 10000 km mark before my next oil change.
My Introduction to IC Green
My uncle from Germany arrived to the Philippines and I was tasked to meet him at the airport. A Counting Cars fan and the family go-to guy for all things automotive, he immediately noticed the weird voices emitting from my car. “May kalampag kotse mo,” he noticed. “Yeah, it’s been a while,” I said. He investigated my car and pointed out the culprit. “It’s your engine, it doesn’t seem to be in good condition. What’s your mileage?” He asked. “Twelve,” I replied. “Too low. Your engine is not burning the fuel efficiently. Let’s go to Makati”, he ordered.
My uncle became an acquaintance of Mr. Dennis Alvarez, the inventor of IC GREEN after his product was recognized by a European Institute in Germany for its superior, better than synthetic oil benefits. He called up his acquaintance and bought an SAE40W15 oil for my car.
While my observation was not scientific, I immediately noticed the difference the oil made to my car. The noise was eliminated, my fuel mileage increased and my car can move even if I start it at the fifth gear! Overall, my drive. became smooth even just a few minutes after filling it up.
Dennis explained to me the properties of the oil and even included a demo of his product just to satisfy my curiosity. Also, I researched the product to ensure that my car will not break after adding a foreign substance (at least to me) to the engine.
My Baby Car Today
Thankfully, after a year of filling in the IC Green, I haven’t experienced a degredation of my car engine’s performance. I now change my oil twice a year at most and friends who borrow my car felt like they are driving a new car. I haven’t let out the secret until today.
