Pardubice, 23.8.2011 – A third of drivers in this country use MOGUL, a traditional Czech brand of motor oil. This was demonstrated by a survey performed by Factum Invenio, which contacted 458 respondents in terms of the survey. The results confirm the privileged position of MOGUL as the number one on the domestic market. Motorists first came across the MOGUL brand in 1927 and since that time, it has become a synonym for quality motor oil.
"The Czechs are patriots who prefer domestic quality when it comes to motor oils. 70% of respondents confirmed actual experience with the MOGUL brand. If an authorised car service centre were to actively offer its customers MOGUL brand motor oil, 87% of motorists would not refuse the offer," says Luboš Krejčík, head of the Sales Support and Special Products Department in Paramo . When choosing a specific oil, motorists primarily make their decision on the basis of the technical parameters of the product and knowledge of the brand. "The price of the motor oil is then important for half of drivers," adds Luboš Krejčík from Paramo.
It was also evident from the results of the Paramo survey that 72% of drivers asked change the oil in their car at least once a year. A quarter of them change it every two years. The most frequent locations for purchasing motor oil are petrol stations followed by car service centres. When choosing a car service centre, the most important factor for the motorist is knowledge of the environment and previous experience with the service centre.
