Getting the oil changed in my car isn’t usually something I remember to do on a regular basis. Let alone, do I pay attention to what kind of oil they are putting in my car. Being married to a retired mechanic does help with this sometimes, but when he’s busy running his own business, it’s up to me to remember when the last time it was done and what the car needs, so I can use any help I can get.
Enter in the MOM web site..
Motor Oil Matters (MOM) is the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) new program for licensing motor oil distributors and oil change locations.
MOM has one main goal: to make sure that consumers receive high-quality oil. This is accomplished by maintaining a secure chain-of-custody for motor oil from the marketer all the way to the vehicle. The MOM mark will help identify distributors and oil change locations committed to providing motor oil meeting the performance standard recommended by most vehicle and engine manufacturers.
The great people at MOM contacted me and asked if I’d like to help them spread the word about making sure your vehicle is getting the best quality motor oil it needs.
To make sure you’re aware of what questions to ask at your next oil change, MOM has provided this checklist.
So the other day, me. my car, and this handy dandy checklist headed out to get our oil changed.
I went over the great tips and information with the oil tech and was happy to know that my vehicle was (and had been) getting some top quality oil!
It was a good feeling to actually be educated on what was going into my car.
And now for the REALLY fun stuff…
