Continuous engine oil monitoring

  • 29-Apr-2009 02:34 EDT


MASTInc’s oil sensor device provides monitoring of the basic properties of engine oil. Designed to provide an inexpensive and mechanically simple solution for alerting vehicle owners when it is time for an oil change, MASTInc’s oil sensor allows vehicle owners to change oil at intervals that optimize engine performance. The potential cost savings of using the device are significant, says the company, considering that most car owners believe they need to change the oil every 3000 mi (4800 km)—a number that does not reflect a car’s true maintenance needs. The MASTInc oil sensor is suitable for car manufacturers, military vehicles, and lubrication and filter companies. It eventually could be sold to consumers who perform their own oil changes.
