Celebrating 12 Years in Las Vegas, Desert Oasis European Auto Repair Announces Drawing for 1 Year of Oil Changes

Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) November 03, 2014

Desert Oasis European Auto Repair announces their 12-year anniversary with a drawing for one year of free oil changes. The expert technicians at Desert Oasis state that the high-performance and precision-tuned engines used by most German luxury automobile manufacturers are especially prone to malfunction in the sweltering heat and excessive dust, typical of arid regions, so more frequent oil changes are of greater importance.

While German auto manufacturers generally suggest maintenance service at intervals of around 10,000 miles, we strongly believe that figure does not take into account the added wear and tear of the conditions that permeate Las Vegas, says George Kiss, co-founder of Desert Oasis European Auto Repair. We have observed too many customers repeatedly experience the same issues, for the same reasons A host of potential unfortunate and costly problems await those who choose to stretch their maintenance service longer than 7,000 miles.

By analyzing thousands of cars through their twelve-year history, Desert Oasis European Auto Repair has concluded that shorter maintenance intervals will dramatically increase the lifespan of high-end automobiles operated in desert climates. Rather than taking a German import in for service every 10,000 miles, the Las Vegas motorist is highly encouraged to shorten that cycle to 5,000 7,000 miles.

Some of the reported issues by customers and technicians at Desert Oasis European Auto Repair included:

Reduction in Oil Efficiency
The Las Vegas area regularly sees temperatures in excess of 100 degrees, and operating a high performance automobile in such heat will quickly break down the viscosity of engine lubricants. Engine oil deteriorates much faster when temperatures rise, creating a build-up of sludge in the bottom of the engine and reducing lubrication where its needed most near the valves and cylinders.

Loss of Instrument Accuracy
German luxury vehicles are world-renowned for their reliability, but clogged sensors and timing systems can wreak havoc on an engine before the owner can realize the extent of the damage. Experts say keeping sensor arrays clean and clear is the only way to ensure that instruments are delivering accurate performance readings to the driver. In worst case scenarios, malfunctioning sensors can lead to complete engine failure with no warning whatsoever.

Failure of Engine Cohesion
In extreme situations, the introduction of grit or the loss of lubrication in even the stoutest of German luxury automobiles can create problems that affect critical aspects of engine operation. Loss of oil pressure due to congested lines can raise the engine temperatures well above normal, and abrasion of the cylinders or valves can lead to uneven timing or misfires. Technicians say this will not only reduce horsepower, but could lead to costly engine repairs.

To help build awareness about the importance of shortened service intervals, Desert Oasis European Auto Repair will be celebrating their 12th anniversary on November 4th by giving away a years worth of oil changes to one local luxury vehicle owner. All Vegas residents are eligible, and all thats required is a simple name and number submission at the shop or through The winner will be drawn at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 4th, and announced through Desert Oasis social media channels on Twitter and Facebook. The drawing prize will include three free oil changes between Nov 4th 2014 and Nov 4th 2015, using fully synthetic high performance lubricants.

Butadiene is a basic petrochemical that is majorly obtained as a by-product from the manufacture of ethylene and propylene. The butadiene market is experiencing strong growth, which is only expected to get stronger in the future, because of the growing demand for its derivatives. Butadiene breaks down quickly in the atmosphere; it is found in ambient air in urban and suburban areas as a consequence of its constant emission from motor vehicles. The largest single use of butadiene is in the production of styrene butadiene rubber (SBR), which is principally used in the manufacture of automobile tires. SBR is also used in adhesives, sealants, coatings, and rubber articles such as shoe soles. The world market for butadiene is largely driven by the demand for elastomers due to their extensive use in manufacture of tires.

The butadiene market in North America is the second-largest market globally, and is expected to grow at a moderate CAGR owing to slow growth in the region. In 2013, the U.S. led the market in terms of consumption in the region, and the market is driving high in the country because producers of butadiene adopt a low-cost leadership approach to the marketplace.

The stringent environment regulations in North America are expected to affect the market growth in developed regions. However, the rising demand for butadiene due to the growth of downstream applications is set to drive and maintain the growth potential of the market in coming years. It remains at a reassuring position for existing players in the market.

The report covers the North American butadiene market, which is segmented on the basis of applications and ingredients. Applications of butadiene include acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, 1,4-Butanediol (1,4-BDO), adiponitrile, engineering plastics, nitrile elastomers or nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) OR Buna N, polybutadiene, styrene butadiene rubber (SBR), and styrene-butadiene latexes. Ingredients include ethane, naphtha, and propane. The countries included in the region are U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
