I understand what a great deal the fuel redemption program is but when every single jug in every store within a 5 mile radius is open, using Pennzoil will turn some people off. At least the QS jugs were mostly intact.
i stay away from sofus only because the jugs are easy to open im always afraid someone will put used oil or lower quality oil in.
i like the silver seal that mobil uses and mobil is cheaper around here anyway...at the shop we use bulk
I just give the jugs a twist. If the seal is intact I buy. If not, I move on to the next jug. Very simple.
I also open the boxes of oil filters too in order to make sure it's new and is the correct one.
mobil has the silver seal and they have a great oil at a good price sometimes.
My last mobil 5000 was in the $12.00 range that sealed the deal my bulk is still cheaper but i spilled oil in my new suv and my wifes car twice if my shop had more room i would change my oil there
I finally threw my dang card in the trash. Got tired of all the hassles trying to use it..constantly getting denied at stations that supposedly take it.
Made me quit buying their oil too....
Well, now this has been a bit problematic for me. I had a plan on using all my fuel rewards to fund an entire 3000+ roadtrip to California in the Jeep. The problem was, not all the stations participate. Really ticked me off the first time I arrived at a Shell station bone dry, ready for 20 gallons at $0.50/gal and they don't participate.
My solution for the roadtrip was to call ahead, and just ask if they participated. This worked fine, every place that participates, the card works fine, everytime for me. Utah, Nevada, California and Oregon. And obviously at home in Colorado as well.
Plan on getting $4/gal off this evening when I use up some of the leftover rewards from that trip.
