Giveaway: Motor Oil Matters (Jiffy Lube GC) [CLOSED]

Since more than 50% of the customers who take their cars in to be serviced are women, I wanted to bring this informative website called Motor Oil Matters to the attention of my readers. I am one of those people who never bothered to learn how a motor works or how it is put together, but that does not mean I do not want to maximize the performance and life of our car.

To warm up, you can play the M.O.M. Knows Best trivia game. It is a fun way to test your knowledge. I won't tell you my score, but I definitely needed to visit the Motor Oil Matters facts page afterwards. I have to say that it succeeded in answering most of my questions about motor oil in short concise easy-to-understand answers.

Thank you to Shell Lubricants and for providing the information shared in this post as well as a gift card for myself and the gift card for our contest prize through MyBlogSpark.

What you can win:
One lucky reader will receive a $35 gift card to Jiffy Lube. Check for the location of the nearest Jiffy Lube
