Many of us are guilty of overlooking regular oil changes. With the average age of American cars on the road now up to a record high of 9.4 years, it is more important than ever.
I would like to point out an informative website called Motor Oil Matters. It covers how high quality motor oil can not only improve the overall efficiency and performance of your vehicle, but extend it’s useful life, as well. It also answers your questions and has a fun interactive quiz called ”M.O.M. Knows Best”
Here are a few highlights from the site:
# 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
