Motor Oil Matters Giveaway

April sure is a busy month! April Fools' Day, Easter, Passover, Tax Day, Earth Day. April is also National Car Care Month and National Informed Women Month.

I did not just make that up!

There is no time like the present to learn how proper vehicle maintenance can save you money.



Did you know?
  • According to a recent survey from the Automotive Service Association, more than 54 percent of customers who take their vehicles for service and repair are women
  • Using a high-quality motor oil in the right grade can help maximize fuel economy
  • Low-quality oils that do not meet industry standards or the vehicle manufacturer´s requirements could cost consumers in the long run by potentially damaging the vehicle´s engine or possibly voiding the manufacturer´s warranty
  • Another reason to look to a high-quality motor oil - like Pennzoil and Quaker State - is that it is designed to meet the demands of today´s engines

The makers of Pennzoil and Quaker State have created a very informative website designed to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision when it comes to motor oil and your vehicle. In addition, the site offers a fun, educational game for you to play called "M.O.M. Knows Best" where you can put your motor mind to the test with an interactive quiz.




For more than 25 years, Jiffy Lube has been an integral part of the North American driving experience. With vehicles playing an ever-more important part of our daily lives, Jiffy Lube is committed to support drivers with fast, quality preventive maintenance service to keep their vehicles running smoother for longer.

I love Jiffy Lube. what I learned from the website was that it's possible to switch between synthetic and conventional oils. I thought once you started with one, you couldn't change.

I just learned something new...that the W stands for winter weight when it comes to the "W" in the oil.

I learned that switching between synthetic and conventional oil isn't too bad for the car! The fact page was great!

I learned that W stands for winter, not weight. I also learned not to buy any oil carrying an "API SA" designation, as SA oils are obsolete for modern automotive engines.

My computer is SLOW today.

Ok, Jiffy Lube rocks. What did I learn? Well, I learned that it takes me a long time to log onto their site before I get kicked off. And then I get ANGRY! And I need an oil change like, 2 months ago. So. I learned that you should have a faster computer to be able to enter contests.

I swear I'll go onto their site once it lets me, though.
