Quaker State(R) to Introduce Durability(TM) Full Synthetic Motor Oil

Quaker State is introducing the new, reformulated Quaker State Ultimate Durability(TM) Full Synthetic Motor Oil, designed to deliver motorists a fuel economy savings of an average of five cents per gallon while providing unsurpassed protection against friction-related wear. Using a proprietary moly formulation, the new full-synthetic additive package of Quaker State Ultimate Durability helps to keep oil fresh, benefitting fuel economy. With the average vehicle age currently resting at 11 years, the new Ultimate Durability motor oil contains additional anti-oxidation additives to help fight engine oil aging, and fight against thermal and viscosity breakdown, helping to increase the overall length of an engine's life. Quaker State Ultimate Durability is ideal for use in both low and high temperatures, providing superior lubrication and protection against wear, especially as temperatures begin to rise. The new Quaker State Ultimate Durability Full Synthetic Motor Oil is available for purchase at retail locations across the country. And now through August 15th, with the Fuel Rewards Network(TM) program, drivers can save 20 cents per gallon on fuel purchases at participating Shell stations for every five quarts of Quaker State Ultimate Durability Full Synthetic Motor Oil purchased at participating retail locations. (20 cents per purchase of five quarts or 4 cents per purchase of each one quart bottle.).
