Some stores will print you a 'rebate' receipt if you ask.

Yeah I hope they don't screw me on this, too. We will see. Rebate slip said limit two 5 qt jugs per address.
Yeah - it's definitely (2) 5-qt jugs per address. If you bought more than (2) and sent them to the same address, forget it. They won't give it to you.

I'm going to do two separate submissions because I'm sure they'll try to tell me because they're on ONE submission they're considered ONE purchase.

Castrol Synthetic Blend- High Millage paired with a Fram Tough Guard Oil Filter
Did the oil change myself, Equinox 2005 AWD with 110,000 miles.
3 months later, I added a small shot of oil to top up to the correct level on the dip stick.
The oil still appears to be very clean, my gas millage improved. Average 26 MPG Highway/ 18 MPG City

What's scary in that poll, is 22 people have no idea what oil they have in their car. :facepalm:

Since it is getting to be very cold out, I have switched over to Mobil1 0w-30 oil like I do every winter. It is a great oil, and it is Dexos approved! Otherwise in the summer I run Mobil1 5w-30, the 0w-30 is hard to get that time of year.

Some Lube places have no idea what oil they are putting in the customer's car either. :thumbdown:
That could be the explanation for the 22 people in the poll. :confused:

My guess is those people just let the dealer or a quick lube place change their oil. They probably figure these places know what they are doing so they don't need to worry about it.

Dexos rated syn/blend or full synthetic is specified oil for the newer Direct Injection engines.
