UICK LUBE OWNERS AND OPERATORS report greater profits selling extended drain interval
AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils and other lubricants. Tom and Kay Garrett, owners of Kwik
Kar Lube and Wash of Grapevine, TX are no exception. AMSOIL XL Extended Life motor oils have
boosted their bottom line. They've had success with both AMSOIL High Performance 15W-40
and AMSOIL XL Extended Life motor oils.
"The XL Extended Life oils are the most cost-effective that we offer, with XL Extended Life 5W-30 being
the largest seller. For those customers who want the best for their cares, we also offer
the AMSOIL SDF oil filters," Garrett said.
The Garretts also have AMSOIL Universal Automatic Transmission Fluid available for
hard-working, hot transmissions. "Texas heat puts a lot of stress on our customers' cars,
and the auto manufacturers are specifying higher quality transmission fluids. Having
the best products available enables us to protect our customers' cars, and is also keeping
my business ahead of the pack in a competitive industry," he said.
Recently, Garrett simplified the store's gear lube inventory by converting to AMSOIL
Synthetic 75W-90 and 75W-140 Gear Lubes exclusively.
"We used to have five or six pails of gear lube, plus product in our bulk gear lube
tank," Garrett said. "It often created problems for my employees to locate and dispense
the correct product. Our new method of having the 75W-90 in bulk handles most of our needs,
with the 75W-140 on hand for heavy duty applications. It has simplified our operation
and we haven't had any customer complaints about the price of gear lube service."
Garrett displays AMSOIL motorcycle oils, filters, and 2-cycle oils in his customer
waiting area. "Many of my customers have motorcycles, jet skis, or boats," he said.
"While they're waiting for their cars to be serviced they can look at some of the other
products they frequently use. The chrome motorcycle oil filters 20W-50 Motorcycle Oil
attract a lot of attention, and frequently end up as an added sale on the ticket."
