Motor Oil Matters Giveaway!

How do you take care of your vehicle? Do you get your oil changed regularly? Do you or someone else change your own oil or do you take it somewhere and have it done for you?

In high school I took a class about cars and learned how to change the oil, and in the process spilled oil ALL over myself. At school. (Okay, now you know one of my embarrassing moments. I'll wait for your laughter to die down before continuing.) Needless to say, I don't change my own oil. I ALWAYS take it somewhere to be done.

The auto industry has noticed that more and more women are taking control of their vehicle maintenance. According to a recent study, 9 out of 10 women were involved with their vehicle's maintenance and repair. I am the one in our family who schedules oil changes and repairs to be done. My husband simply doesn't have time, and since I am a stay-at-home mom, I can easily make a phone call to schedule things. Frequently I will schlep all four kids with me while we get the oil changed in the minivan!

Apparently the average age of cars and light trucks has now reached over 9 years. Taking proper care of your vehicle can increase it's lifetime, saving you money in the long run. MotorOilMatters.org now has a website created by oil retailers where you can get information about prolonging your engine's life and efficiency. There is also an interactive quiz called "M.O.M Knows Best" where you can test your motor mind and learn some things about your engine.

My Blog Spark invited me to check out this website and also gave me a $35 gift card to get my oil changed at Jiffy Lube, provided by Shell Lubricants and MotorOilMatters.org. I haven't had a chance to get my oil changed yet because I got it changed JUST before I heard about this, but I am going to give it to my sister so she can get her oil changed.

My Blog Spark and MotorOilMatters.org want to give one of YOU a $35 Jiffy Lube gift card as well! To find out if there is a Jiffy Lube near you, go here.

To enter the giveaway:

  • Go take the M.O.M. quiz and let me know how you scored.
  • Leave another comment if you are a subscriber via email or RSS.
  • Leave another comment if you are a google follower.
  • Leave another comment if my button is on your blog's sidebar, or if my blog is listed on your blogroll. Leave your blog's address so I can visit you! :-)
This giveaway will end on December 15, when I will pick a winner using Random.org. I will contact the winner by email to get their address, which I will pass along to My Blog Spark so they can mail out your prize.

But, I have to confess...
I know a little about cars because I was an automotive mechanic when I served in the Air Force 25+ years ago! I don't claim to be a mechanic by any means but there are some things I still remember. :o)
