Jiffy Lube Giveaway $35 GC ~2 Winners~

Giveaway Now Closed. Congrats to Nicole and Tanya.
Photobucket
Did you know that 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? That means it’s more important than ever to take proper care of your vehicle.

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

Regular oil changes are one of the most important things that can be done to help extend the life of an engine.

So... What are you waiting for?... Go get your oil changed!!!

Win It!!!! Two of my lucky readers will each get a $35 Jiffy Lube gift card to use which will cover most of the cost, if not all, of a conventional oil change at most Jiffy Lube locations. Please click on the following link to locate your nearest store:http://www.jiffylube.com/findlocation/storelocator.aspx.

This is what I found most interesting: "Severe use typically includes stop-and-go driving, frequent high-speed driving and short trips. Towing, operating in dusty conditions and operating in cold and hot weather are also typically considered severe service."

Thanks for the great giveaway!
