The NJ Attorney General has announced a ban on the sale of several cut-rate brands of motor oil that do not conform with the viscosity rating on their labels.
These are not slight variations, but are wildly different viscosities than are claimed on the label.
If a retailer is found to be selling these oils after the posting of the Stop Sale Notice, the potential fine is $100 per bottle.
The Petroleum Quality Institute of America (PQIA) tipped-off the AG’s Office, and investigators from both Consumer Affairs and The Bureau of Weights & Measures confirmed the information.
Unless other states institute similar bans, you might find these crap brands of motor oil on a shelf near you.
