Information supplied by cookies can help us to understand the profile of our visitors and help us to provide you with a better user experience. For example, if on a previous visit you went to our Tank replacement page, we might find this out from your cookie and relevant information on your second and subsequent visits. Southern Lubricants uses this type of information to help improve the services it provides to its users.
Please note that during your visits to Southern Lubricants websites you may notice some cookies that are not related to Southern Lubricants or the our contractors.
To enhance the user experience, we sometimes embed content from social media and other third party websites. These may include YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, SoundCloud, Vine, Instagram, Pinterest and Flickr. As a result, when you visit a page containing such content, you may be presented with cookies from these websites and these third party cookies may track your use of the Southern Lubricants website. Southern Lubricants does not control the dissemination of these cookies and you should check the relevant third party’s website for more information. If you continue without changing your settings, we’ll assume that you are happy to receive all cookies on the Southern Lubricants website.
Where Southern Lubricants embeds content from social media and other third party websites, some websites may use Google Analytics to collect data about user behaviour for their own purposes. Southern Lubricants does not control this. For more information, see the Google webpage “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps”.
Your web browser may also provide Southern Lubricants with information about your device, such as an IP address and details about the browser that you are using. We use information provided by your browser or by the link that you have clicked to understand the webpage that directed you to Southern Lubricants and this may be captured by performance cookies.
Do not track (DNT) is a feature offered by some browsers, with some newer browsers offering it as default. If you enable it, it sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing isn’t tracked, for example by third party ad or social networks, or analytic companies. At present no industry-wide uniform standard has been agreed and adopted to determine how DNT requests should be managed, so our website doesn’t currently respond to DNT requests. Until that standard is established, we’ll continue to review DNT and other new technologies, but won’t respond to DNT requests. We’re giving you this information to comply with recent legislation, and to ensure that we are honest and clear about your privacy when using our website. We know you’d expect nothing less from us, and please be assured that we’re working on a number of other privacy and cookie-related improvements to the website.

Running a large fleet of trucks from multiple manufacturers creates challenges due to the number of individual oil requirements and ever-changing engine specifications. We work with Southern Lubricants as their extensive technical knowledge and excellent service ensures we have the right oil at the right time to keep our vehicles on the road.
