Banned in N.J.: 19 Motor Oil Products Fail to Match Promise On the Label

Banned in N.J.: 19 Motor Oil Products Fail to Match Promise On the Label
BY JEFF LAMM
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

The New Jersey Office of Weights and Measures today issued a statewide ban on 19 motor oil products, bearing the brand names “Auto Club Motor Oil,” “Black Knight Motor Oil,” “Lube State Motor Oil,” “MaxiGuard MG,” “Orbit Motor Oil,” “TruStar Motor Oil,” “U.S. Economy Motor Oil,” and “U.S. Spirit Motor Oil.”

The banned products may no longer be sold in New Jersey. Retail establishments that continue to sell them will be subject to a civil penalty of at least $100 per package or container of the banned product – a penalty far in excess of the approximately $3 to $4 per quart bottle for which many of these products have been sold. A full list of the banned products, with photos, can be found on the State Office of Weights and Measures website.
