Description

News 12 New Jersey became the first television station in the country to expose a serious problem: contaminated, potentially harmful motor oil for sale at gas stations and convenience stores. Testing by an independent laboratory with expertise in the petrochemical field found sound brands of oil for sale can seriously damage your engine. Some is not suitable for any car made in the last 83 years. Some do not come close to the specifications listed on the label. And in at least one case, the manufacturer is simply re-packaging and re-selling used oil. Following News 12 New Jersey's investigation, New Jersey's Attorney General has launched an investigation into the issue and has announced a commitment to get these dangerous motor oils off the market.
