Motor Oil Matters (MOM) $50 gift card Giveaway

Hi guys I have a great giveaway for you. Motor Oil Matters (MOM) is a new consumer education and industry watchdog program by the American Petroleum Institute. This nonprofit organization has been established to stress the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and call on to the carpet those who engage in deceptive practices.

With the summer driving season ramping up, MOM wants to remind you to be in the know when it comes to motor oil changes.

To help you know what questions to ask on your next oil change, MOM has made up this checklist. Please enlarge for better view (or click here for pdf version: checklist)



Here is some more info. for you:


  • AAA expects between the major summer holidays of Memorial Day and Labor Day to aid over eight million motorists, and cautions drivers that auto maintenance is key to avoiding summertime travel breakdowns. Ensuring quality motor oil in your car is one way to prevent road trip problems.
  • Motor Oil Matters, or MOM, a new consumer education and industry watchdog program by the American Petroleum Institute, has been established to stress the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and call on to the carpet those who engage in deceptive practices.
  • Service-locators can be quick to offer discounted services to people who are looking to reduce their automotive maintenance costs.  Make sure your service provider is pouring quality motor oil into your car before you decide on a cheaper deal.

I am definitely going to bring this checklist along with me when I get an oil change. You should too! Now MOM wants to offer one of my readers a $50 visa gift card to help you with your next oil change.

I'm going to use my $50 gc to get an oil change. And I will be having another post on that soon. So check back!
