Hi folks. After an extended hiatus to deal with, well, LIFE, FWotC is back, and we’ve got a great giveaway for you.

But before I provide the details, I wanted to let you know about a great new website: Motor Oil Matters. This website provides a wealth of information about choosing motor oil for your car. I know that in the past, when I’ve gone to get my oil changed, I usually just went with whatever oil they happened to have in stock. But as this website points out,  not all oil is created equal. Did you know, for example, that full synthetic motor oils are much better than conventional motor oils? (Yeah, neither did I.)

Again, the website is www.motoroilmatters.org. They’ve got an interactive quiz, a list of tips about motor oil, and even some fun videos to watch. Check it out!

Now, on to the giveaway. One of my lucky readers will receive a $35 Jiffy Lube gift card, courtesy of Shell Lubricants and MotorOilMatters, so they can keep the oil in their car freshly changed, and their motor running well.  I personally love Jiffy Lube – I had my oil changed there pretty recently, and the service was excellent – and quick!

To enter, leave a comment on this post (include your email in the appropriate field). You can get a bonus entry by posting a tweet on Twitter with a link to this post. Limit a total of 2 entries per person. US residents only. I’ll draw one winner randomly at noon central time on Jan. 28 and e-mail them. If you’re selected, you must respond by noon Jan. 29 with your mailing information, so they can get the card out to you.

Good luck!

Shell Lubricants and Motor Oil Matters, through MyBlogSpark, provided the gift card and giveaway, and sent me a Jiffy Lube gift card as well so I could try out the service and tell you about it. No other compensation was provided to me by MyBlogSpark.
