Item Given Away: $150 of Shell Gas Cards
Start Date: December 13
End Date: December 28

This holiday season hundreds if not thousands of people will travel to their loved ones. A lot of people fly, but today I am going to focus on driving and your car. I like staying on the ground anyway! I am here to make sure that you know what you need to before you hit the roads. Did you know that driving can often be more economical, fun and flexible than flying. According to a May 2012 Car Care Council analysis, a family of four traveling 1,000 miles round trip could save $1,000 by driving instead of flying

    • The average cost for a family of four to drive 1,000 mile round trip is $350
    • The average cost for a family of four to fly 1,000 mile round trip is $1,441

And according to the Shell Mechanics Survey*, the four best tactics to prepare your vehicle for the upcoming holiday travel season are:

    • Inspect tires for air pressure, tread depth, rotation, etc.
    • Check all fluid levels
    • Fill up with a high quality fuel
    • Check / change engine oil and oil filers

*The Shell Mechanics Survey was a 7-minute online survey conducted by StrategyOne.  The survey was fielded from March 30 – April 2, 2012 and sampled 450 automotive mechanics across the United States. The margin of error is +/- 4.62% at 95% confidence.

Gas is an important factor as well and Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines contain 20% more active cleaning agents than before, helping protect engine’s intake valves and fuel injectors from performance-robbing gunk. No other gasoline protects better! That sounds perfect to me!

I know for our recent cross country move we made sure every point of our car was up to the 2,000+ mile trip home which included buying new tires, checking the fluids and getting our oil changed. Taking care of your car is very important and one of the things that makes your road trips more enjoyable. That way you can enjoy the time with family and take in the scenery without worrying about the car.

That is why this holiday season with all the traveling to family for the holidays I am happy to announce that courtesy of Shell I have a giveaway that will help you out at the pump. I have two prizes to share with you:

  • 1 Grand Prize Winner will receive a $100 Shell Gas Card
  • 1 Runner Up will receive a $50 Shell Gas Card
