April is both National Car Care and National Informed Women Month and a perfect opportunity to get empowered to care for your car! Did you know that in the United States the average age of cars and light trucks on the roads today has reached a record high of 9.4 years? That means it's more important than ever to take proper care of your vehicle.
With the informative Web site http://www.motoroilmatters.org/ (created by the maker of industry-leading brands Pennzoil and Quaker State) you can easily locate key information about how quality motor oils can help prolong your engine's life and improve overall efficiency, as well as help answer other questions you may have about motor oil. In additon, the site offers a fun, educational game for your to play called "M.O.M. Knows Best" where you can put your motor mind to the test with an interactive quiz.
Did you know?
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 mother oil- like Penzoil and Quaker State -is that it is designed to meet the demands of today's engines.
