Jiffy Lube(R) Empowers Drivers to Improve Fuel Efficiency
Fast Lube Leader Helps Consumers with Fuel Efficiency Tips and $10 Prepaid Gas Cards
HOUSTON, June 12 // PRNewswire // -- As costs to operate a vehicle continue to rise, drivers want to take more control of improving their fuel efficiency. That's why Jiffy Lube International is putting customers back in the driver's seat with a fuel efficiency review to help get the most out of their gas mileage this summer. Beginning June 18, customers who purchase a Jiffy Lube Signature Service(R) Oil Change at participating service centers will receive a Fuel Efficiency Review detailing tips that can save them up to fifty-five cents per gallon.* Customers will also receive a ten dollar valued American Express(R) prepaid fuel card to use towards their next fill-up as part of The Perfect 10 promotion**.
"Finding ways to maximize fuel efficiency is without question a top priority for drivers," said Lisa Carlson, global director of marketing at Jiffy Lube International. "Jiffy Lube can be a part of the solution for our customers. In addition to providing a Fuel Efficiency Review to help drivers improve gas mileage, The Perfect 10 promotion rewards our customers with tangible savings on gas."
Fuel Efficiency Review -- Improve Gas Mileage
During each Jiffy Lube Signature Service(R) Oil Change, a Jiffy Lube technician visually inspects the engine air filter. Replacing a clogged engine air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as thirty-seven cents per gallon.* In addition, Jiffy Lube technicians will replace the vehicle's motor oil with a fresh supply based on the vehicle manufacturer's recommended grade, which can improve gas mileage as much as seven cents per gallon.* The review also includes a check of the vehicle's tire pressure against the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations. Keeping a vehicle's tires inflated to the proper pressure can improve gas mileage up to eleven cents per gallon. *
Free Gas -- The Perfect 10
This summer Jiffy Lube is adding more value by offering a ten dollar valued American Express(R) prepaid fuel card**. Customers who purchase a Jiffy Lube Signature Service(R) Oil Change will receive a simple form to complete and mail-in along with the invoice to receive their American Express(R) prepaid fuel card**.
