Plug and Play Oil Changes are here

How cool would it be to change the oil in your car as easy as you change the batteries in your flashlight? Well, thanks to Castrol that coolness has arrived! Check this out...

Castrol has developed an oil cell that sits in the engine bay and looks like it's the size of the car's battery. The simplicity of the Nexcel oil cell is that it contains both the oil and the filter and to change the oil is simply a matter of lifting the cell out and slipping the new cell into place. No more car lifts, messy draining, or figuring-out when and where to take the old oil.

Castrol says that their oil cell will increase recycling of oil, which makes sense since the cell is enclosed in one container and is easily lifted out of its craddle. Although this is certainly huge, we waiting for a response from Castrol for more data. Scroll down to watch the video to see just how easy Castrol's Nexcel will make our oil changes in the future!

It appears that the Nexcel is not yet available, but Castrol says that the Aston Martin Vulcan track-only Supercar will be the first car to sport the Nexcel allowing lightning fast oil changes!

Although born in Boston, I spent most of my life in Southern California. When growing-up, everything I did revolved around cars. My first car was a '64 Comet thanks to my Sister. Favorite cars owned: '66 Mustang and '69 Camaro. My first engine build was a Ford 289 in high-school, which powered my '66 Stang through a high 12-second pass in the 1/4. I designed the engine based on what I learned from lots of automotive mags. Current toys are late models including an '07 Mustang GT/CS and '03 Cobra. Future project expects to be a '69 Camaro or '69 Mach I pro-touring build.

Be sure to say hi, when you see me at an event!
