Your car's motor oil provides much-needed lubrication and protection against common causes of engine stress, including heat, deposits and wear. Regular oil changes are an important part of vehicle maintenance, extending the life of your car and even helping to improve fuel efficiency.
Motor Oil Matters (MOM) is the American Petroleum Institute's new program for licensing motor oil distributors and oil change locations.
MOM ensures that consumers always receive high-quality oil. This is accomplished by maintaining a secure chain-of-custody for motor oil from the marketer all the way to your vehicle.
Check your owner's manual to see which viscosity grade and performance level is right for your vehicle's engine. Manufacturers often recommend oils licensed by the American Petroleum Institute (API) as these oils have been rigorously tested to ensure they meet API's engine oil standards. The MOM mark identifies oil change locations that are committed to providing motor oil that meets these standards, helping you to protect your car.
