I know very little about car maintenance. But like 54% of U.S. women, I’m the one in our family that takes the cars for routine service. I should know something about taking care of my car, right?
Given my low car maintenance IQ, I was excited to learn that the maker of Penzoil and Quaker State oils has recently debuted a new website, www.MotorOilMatters.org. After taking a look at the site myself, I’ve decided that it’s a great resource for all-things motor oil. It has a helpful Frequently Asked Questions section, oil related articles, and an interactive motor oil quiz. (Yes, I failed it. Miserably. With a 57%. I’d like to think I wouldn’t fail it again after spending some time on MotorOilMatters.org though!)
Car oil really is a matter of frugality. One fact that I read on the Motor Oil Matters site (and a little something that I did already know) is that regular oil changes are one of the most important factors in extending the life of your car’s engine. (And how unfrugal is it to have to buy a new car prematurely for preventable reasons?!) Plus, according to the MotorOilMatters, regular oil changes can help improve your car’s fuel economy. And since gas prices in my area are nearly $3 a gallon once again, so I’m game for anything that can help me get better gas mileage.
Now, Shell Oil and Motor Oil Matters want to give one of you a $35 Jiffy Lube, to help keep your oil in tip-top shape.
The prize: (1) $35 Jiffy Lube gift card to 1 winner
