They had better brace themselves because EVs simply don't need lubricants & fluids the way that petrol & diesel cars do. The bread & butter business of the servicing industry - engine oil change - is gone in electric cars!

It will be a huge irony if Electric Vehicles still need dino oils for their running and upkeep, especially because EV owners like to call conventional vehicles "Fossil Cars".

So any self respecting EV manufacturer and its owner should only use "Group 4 or 5 fully synthetic" grease and oil in the transmissions and the wheel bearings and even for greasing the door hinges.

Do not use WD40 either anywhere on the car!
