New Era continued to help motor discount stores stock motor oils for consumers to purchase for home servicing of their cars. A key development of this decade was the introduction of plastic containers for oils including 5L and 20L containers. Unlike the previous metal tins, plastic containers could not dent or rust. Utilising the latest technology, New Era uses a pneumatic air filling machine to fill the plastic containers, and begins to offer customers their own “white labels”. New Era also began to use computers for invoicing and accounting.
