STP’s summertime tune-up tonic at Halfords
In preparation for summer holiday motoring, engine care champion STP is encouraging a quick and simple DIY tune-up, with the prices of all STP products available at Halfords’ 460 UK stores, and online, reduced by 20% until July 9, subject to availability.
The offer applies to all STP products, including the very latest Complete Fuel System Cleaners, Fuel Injector Cleaners and Fuel Treatments. All provide an instant tonic to engines of all ages and types and help to restore engine efficiency and minimise fuel consumption.
STP states that usage of its additives in a tankful of fuel will remove deposits in the engine and fuel delivery system, restoring power, improving fuel consumption and reducing emissions.
A spokesperson for STP commented: “The cost of fuel is reason enough to ensure your car’s engine is performing at its best - UK petrol priceshave soared nearly 40% in five years*-and if a motoring holiday is planned, it’s all the more critical to take simple steps to maximise efficiency and minimise problems.”
The recommended checklist of pre-holiday tune-up tasks also includes tyre tread depth and pressure, coolant level, windscreen wiper condition, and correct functioning of all lights.
In addition to carrying the mandatory warning triangle and high-visibility vest for use in breakdowns, holiday motorists are reminded that from July 1st all cars on French roads must carry at least one unused breathalyser, to French certification.
