Motor Oil Matters $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

Motor Oil Matters

As the family chauffeur I tend to spend a lot of time in the car and I also put miles on it much faster than the average person. Since the recommended time between oil changes is 3 months OR 3,000 miles, I always end up needing an oil change long before the date on the sticker in the window.

I just recently learned about Motor Oil Matters, or MOM, a new consumer education and industry watchdog program by the American Petroleum Institute, that was established to stress the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and call on to the carpet those who engage in deceptive practices.

They sent me to my favorite local auto shop, Gary Sapp Automotive, to get an oil change and I brought along their handy MOM’s Oil Change Checklist. Whitney, the shop’s friendly service writer, helped me fill it out. I honestly had no idea what viscosity oil was recommended for my vehicle or how to tell what I was getting but it was super simple to ask the right questions with the checklist in hand and they were very happy to help me with it and inform me about my car’s oil and filter needs.

One of the main things that you should know is service-locators can be quick to offer discounted services to people who are looking to reduce their automotive maintenance costs, but you really do get what you pay for when it comes to auto maintenance.  You should make sure that your service provider is pouring quality motor oil into your car before you decide on a cheaper deal. For more information visit the Motor Oil Matters website, check them out on Twitter and follow them on Facebook.

    I only know my son-in-law (where I love) use to change all the oil in the vehicles. Now, he has quit and does nothing with the vehicles so my daughter and I will be taking ours in soon. I’ll be learning lots more then

  2. We will probably get our next oil change in September

  3. I will need to change the oil next month

    I adore Gary Sapp Automotive and we always laugh because the girls name is the same as mine. I am so comfortable asking questions and they have no problem showing me parts and such. I think the MOM check list is amazing, especially for the single ones who have no idea. lol

  5. 1-2 months from now.

  6. We’ll be needing an oil change probably the middle of August. We also tend to put a lot of miles on the car, so would really love to win this!

    If I remember correctly my car uses SAE 30 and I’m coming due for an oil change in about another 1000 miles. I live in Pensacola too, so I was thinking of taking my car to Gary Sapp Automotive as well since you recommend them. I think it would be fairly convenient for me to do on my lunch hour. Thanks!

  8. I will be needing my next oil change in September.
