Kane in Your Corner Puts Motor Oils to the Test... and Four Out of Four Fail!

News12 New Jersey, in cooperation with PQIA, has begun a three part investigative series on a serious issue all car owners should be aware of; bad engine oils in the market.

It's a must see series, and for those outside the reach of News12 NJ, you can access the story on the News12 NJ and PQIA websites. 

 
 
Four Out of Four Examined by News12 Failed!

Part I in the Series aired last night (click here to view), Part II airs tonight and will speak to what NJ and other states are doing to address the issue of harmful motor oils in their markets.

TUNE IN TO NEWS12 NEW JERSEY TO HEAR WHAT NJ AND OTHER STATES ARE DOING TO PROTECT THEIR CITIZENS FROM HARMFUL MOTOR OILS.
Kane in Your Corner -The Details
A News12 NJ Kane in Your Corner investigation finds motor oils not suitable for cars are commonly found for sale at gas stations and convenience stores in New Jersey. Some of it is contaminated, some of it is for cars made before the 1930s, and some of it is possibly even used oil that has been repackaged and resold. All of it can do serious damage to your car according to an exclusive Kane In Your Corner investigation.

"The probability of getting some of this bad stuff is pretty high here in New Jersey," says Tom Glenn, president of the Petroleum Quality Institute of America. 

 

 

State Regulators Warn Consumers of Noncompliant Motor Oil according to the National Conference on Weights and Measures

Weights and Measures regulators in some states are taking action to remove brands of motor oil from retail shelves that may be hazardous to your vehicle engine. Regulators in Michigan and North Carolina have ordered several brands off sale in recent months in what appears to be a rash of alleged fraudulent activity among small distributors.  Click for more.
