We ask all of our loyal customers to be careful when purchasing motor oil for your vehicles. Many times consumers will reach for whatever is the cheapest or most convenient product on the shelf, but it is important to understand that by choosing one of these products, it can be harmful to your vehicle. Stories such as these are extremely frustrating and bothersome. We find it extremely unfortunate and sad that companies will go to these lengths to try and make a quick buck. However, it is important to remember that there are a lot of honest oil manufacturers, distributers, shops, mechanics, etc., that put forth 100% effort to deliver the best possible experience to their customers at all times. We ask that if you ever have any questions regarding certain products that pertain to your vehicle, you do not hesitate to contact us. We will be more than happy to find an answer or a solution for you. We thank you for your patronage and years of support.
