Magnetic Sump Plugs from Gold Plug - The last drain plug you'll ever need!
Another American company, Gold Plug was started in 2001, simply because they were fed up of not being able to find a good quality magnetic drain plug for their street bike engine that they had just finished rebuilding. After searching high and low, Gold Plug was born. Now, their daily mission is to supply the very best magnetic drain plugs to keep your vehicle running in the best possible condition. Why choose a magnetic oil plug over a standard sump plug you ask? Well, there's quite a few reasons actually.
Every time you run your engine, there will be a build-up of contamination in the form of thousands and thousands of very small particles of ferrous metal. The main cause for these microscopic particles is friction, and you can imagine how much of this is generated when driving hard. To put things in perspective, an engine travelling at just 2000rpm sends the pistons up and down the bore 33 times per second. Imagine what a day on track is doing to your engine!
The oil filter does its part in keeping these filtered, however, they can only filter out particles larger than 35 microns. These nanoparticles of metal suspended in the oil are considerably smaller than this, and to top it all off, the smaller the particle, the more damage they can do - This is because they travel pretty much anywhere in your engine when under hydraulic pressure. The only way to "trap" these particles is with very strong magnetism.
You can find them HERE. If you fancy a look at exactly how magnetic sump plugs work, you will find a handy video on each product page. Have a look below for links to just a few of the vehicles they cover:
- Subaru - Nissan - Mitsubishi - BMW - Honda - Audi - Mercedes - Toyota - Ford - Peugot - Mazda - Volkswagen - Renault - Volvo - Land Rover - Mini -
Gold Plug have designed their range to fit over 100,000 cars and motorbikes, so if you need any advice on the correct one for you, then please get in touch. Why rely on just any old drain plug, when you can have one from Gold Plug that saves your engine from the wear and tear of metal particles?
One last time, that code is: HG20 and is running until the end of March, so if you want to get 20% off either of these great brands, you'll want to get these orders in as soon as you can.
It's also worth keeping an eye on our current offers page HERE. There are all sorts of goodies to be found!
