Jiffy Lube and MyBlogSpark Giveaway

In the United States the average age of cars and light trucks on the roads today has reached a record high of 9.4 years, making it more important than ever for consumers to take proper care of their vehicles. With the new MotorOilMatters.org web site www.MotorOilMatters.org (created by industry-leading brands Pennzoil, Quaker State and Shell Rotella); you can easily locate key information that will help prolong your engine´s life and improve overall efficiency, as well as help answer any 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 study by the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association, nearly 9 out of 10 female motorists are involved in their household’s vehicle maintenance and repair

According to a national survey that polled 522 women, 46 percent incorrectly assumed simply switching from conventional engine oil to synthetic oil enables the number of miles between oil changes to be safely extended*

Using a quality motor oil in the right grade can help maximize fuel economy, and help save money by preventing costly engine damage

Off-brand, no-name or discount 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 warrant

Shell Lubricants and MotorOilMatters.org sent me a Jiffy Lube gift certificate for $35.00, through MyBlogSpark, which should cover an oil change. I’m so excited, I haven’t had my oil changed in forever!

They also have a gift certificate to give to one Mommy Has to Work reader.

    On the news that matter tab: Shell is reducing the use of poor quality motor oil in the market because of engine wear and sludge.

  74. I learned this is called severe driving ~ Severe use typically includes stop-and-go driving, frequent high-speed driving and short trips. Heck that's the only way we can drive around here ~ all trips would seem "short" by the miles driven, but with the stop and go thing….it's severe – not only on the car but also on the nerves.

  75. I learned that you can switch between regular and synthetic oil without harming your vehicle.

  76. I subscribe to your newsletter.

  77. They have survey results that show almost 9 out of 10 wives are involved in vehicle maintenance. well duh – at my house hubby goes to work and I'm the one that takes whichever car needs it in for servicing. If I don't like the garage, I take the car to a different one.
