German term or phrase: Tecsint
Warenkunde (vom Erdöl zum Tecsint)
The above is an aspect of running a multifunctional service station about which potential managers have to learn. But what is Tecsint?

English translation:See below
Explanation:
I think that the point is that Tecsint is a synthetic lubricant as oposed to Erdöl, which is not synthetic.

I found this at Agip Deutschland's web site (using Ask Jeeves!):

Gute Tropfen für den Motor
Wir waren die ersten, die synthetisches Öl auf den Markt brachten - AGIP SINT 2000. In unseren Forschungs- und Entwicklungslabors haben wir es konsequent weiterentwickelt. heute zählt unser neues vollsynthetisches High-Tech-Oil TECSINT 5W-30 unverändert zu den Spitzenprodukten.
