Motor Oil Matters aka MOM is a new consumer education and industry watchdog program by the American Petroleum Institute. This nonprofit organization has been established to stress the benefits of quality licensed motor oils and call on to the carpet those who engage in deceptive practices.
Motor Oil Matters Checklist For Your Next Oil Change
MOM was established to license the good guys – oil manufacturers, distributors and oil change locations who have demonstrated to us that they meet the highest API chain-of-custody standard – meaning, the proper, quality motor oil for your vehicle is actually what they are putting into your car.
With driving season ramping up, MOM wants to remind you to be in the know when it comes to motor oil changes. To make sure you’re aware of what questions to ask at your next oil change, MOM has provided this Motor Oil Matters checklist.
- 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 travel breakdowns. Ensuring quality motor oil in your car is one way to prevent road trip problems.
- 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.
I had my oil changed today at a MOM-licensed oil change location and I brought along my Motor Oil Matters checklist to make sure that I knew what I was looking for in an oil change.
Interested in finding a MOM-licensed oil change location? You can use the locator on the Motor Oil Matters website and don’t forget to print out a copy of the Motor Oil Matters checklist while you are there:)
The Motor Oil Matters information and gift card for me to use on an MOM oil change were provided by Motor Oil Matters.
