A Jiffy Giveaway

Motor Oil.  You wanted to learn about motor oil today, didn't you?

Did you know that the average age of cars and light trucks on the roads today has reached 9.4 years?  I know we're bringing that average up (our vehicles are 1998-2000) and keeping these older cars running makes taking care of them more important than ever.

So I jumped at the chance to offer you the opportunity to learn more about oil, oil changes... and to give one of you a free (or nearly free) oil change at Jiffy Lube.

To enter the giveaway, visit Motor Oil Matters and poke around a bit.  There is a lot of information, and an interactive quiz (I scored 100%, thank you very much!) and if you come back here and leave a comment telling me either your score on the quiz, or something you learned on the website, you are entered in my giveaway to win a $35 Jiffy Lube gift card.

For additional entries, you can:

  1. Follow my blog using Google Friend Connect, and leave a comment saying you are a follower
  2. Follow my blog via Networked Blogs, and leave a comment telling me that
  3. Post about this giveaway somewhere and tell me about that
You probably want to live somewhere near a Jiffy Lube, I need to have some way to contact you, and you need to enter by midnight Mountain Time on Monday, May 24.  

Disclosure:  MotorOilMatters.org and Shell Lubricants provided me with the gift card and information through MyBlogSpark.

Well, I scored 100 percent on the quiz anyway. I liked how it explained the answer after you picked the correct answer :). I'm hoping to figure out networked blogs later today, but Panera for breakfast is first :).

I learned that additives help to keep the engine clean. I missed one question on the quiz.

I didn't take the quiz (didn't see it) but I looked at the facts and learned that the correct interval for oil changes is not necessarily 3 months/3,000 miles but is "the one recommended by the engine manufacturer for your individual driving conditions.It is printed in the vehicle owner’s manual."
