Motor Oil Matters...and so do my readers!

Despite my father's best efforts, I know nothing about cars. I had some pretty grand plans of marrying someone who knew something about car maintenance but then I found this guy who was a caring, funny, Christian family man and I decided that taking the car in for an oil change instead of doing it ourselves wouldn't really be the end of the world. So imagine my delight when I just took the Motor Oil Matters quiz and scored an 85.71%. My dad is gonna be so proud! Look daddy, your little girl is all grown up and passing car quizzes! Who knew? So what if the answers were fairly obvious. Am I right?

Anyway. I was pretty excited when MyBlogSpark offered me a 35 dollar gift card to Jiffy Lube for my next oil change and a gift card to bestow upon one of my readers. In a very small way it makes me want to be all like, "Blam! All that excess reading and writing and daydreaming instead of learning about the difference between a radiator and a carburetor (for the record I actually do know what a radiator is and, even, where it is located) is finally paying off." Except that, really, 70 dollars doesn't even begin to touch the amount of money I've spent having things on my car fixed. So, really, I probably should have listened a little better to Car Maintenance 101 as taught by my dad. But I digress...

The important thing is...YOU! A 35 dollar gift card to Jiffy Lube!

So here's what I want you to do. Go to the Motor Oil Matters website and have a look around. Then take the quiz. Come back here and leave a comment telling me your score and which question/answer you found the most interesting.
