Disclosure: Motor Oil Matters information and gift cards have been provided by Motor Oil Matters.
I spend a lot of time in my car. I depend on my car to get me to the office each day, and to help get my girls where they need to be. Like most working mom’s I sometimes find myself driving over the recommended miles between oil changes. Not because I’m lazy, but because I tend to feel out of place while at the garage. I’d much prefer my husband handle the oil changes. But, with his schedule being busier than mine, it’s often left up to me. That is why I’m happy to share this information and giveaway with other moms.
The American Petroleum Institute has created a new consumer education and industry watchdog program called MOM, which gives a list of things you should be looking for at your next oil change. They want to let people know how important it is to use quality licensed motor oils and that there are those out there who are being deceptive and not doing this.
To make sure you’re aware of what questions to ask at your next oil change, MOM has provided the below checklist.

A few things to consider:
- 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.
