Motor Oil Matters Review and Giveaway CLOSED

I know this will come as a shock to you all but, I'm a GIRL! :::gasp::: And I know you'll find this easily as shocking but...as a GIRL sometimes I think the "people" at car places think I'm an idiot. But the truth is, when it comes to cars, I AM! I know, I'm doing my gender a great disservice here by thoroughly fulfilling a stereotype. But it's just the truth. I don't know a ball joint from a steering rack, and the extent of my maintenance knowledge is filling the gas tank and knowing I'm well past needing an oil change when that little light comes on.

So when I recieved a gift card to help me test out my new knowledge at my local Jiffy Lube...I wimped out and sent my trusty side kick (my husband).  I'm glad I did because he made the decision to switch back from the synthetic we'd been using for awhile because for our second oil change in a row we were all but OUT of oil.  For this I'll have to forgive the fact that he also added a new scuff to my van (but next to the dent and the LARGE scrape I'm not sure anyone will notice) when he stopped at the store afterwards.

But maybe you don't have a trusty side kick...OR you're just more liberated than I and want to be able to handle these tasks for yourself.  Then you need to keep reading...

With the informative Web site www.MotorOilMatters.org (created by the maker of industry-leading brands Pennzoil and Quaker State) you can easily locate key information about how quality motor oils can help prolong your engine’s life and improve overall efficiency, as well as help answer other questions you may have about motor oil. 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.

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


So you think, you're ready to put YOUR new found knowledge to the test??  Thanks to MotorOilMatters.org and Shell Lubricant you too can win a $35 gift card to your local Jiffy Lube!!
