Exclamation What the Heck

So............ I was watching the TV and the commercial for Valvoline came on and it boasted that if you use their oil they would COVER your engine up to 300,000 miles

they also offer other levels of coverage

what do yall think? should I do it?

i dont think it would hurt....... but I do like running Motorcraft oil.......hadnt tried anything else


so....... heres the website http://www.engineguarantee.com/

It is good of them to offer - but the fine print is the killer. You need to keep documentation & receipts for all oil changes & maintenance for 300k miles. That's like 20 years. Miss one, or lose the receipt & they have an out not to cover you.

just stick w/ what ur using!! Its just a marketing gimmick. the people that actually follow through w/ that are going to be less than 1%. plus, once you start it, you need to finish w/ it. @ 225k miles worth of driving, changing every 5k, thats 45 oil changes, alot of business for them. like i said, its just marketing, stick w/ what you got!! mobil one is an awesome oil, no need to change!!
