So I had an idea...I've read on here that you can email an oil company and get OC stickers, so I decided to conduct a little experiment. I emailed them all lol...Pennzoil, Valvoline, Havoline, Castrol, and Mobil, just to kind of test their customer service... I did this Tuesday night and woke up to an email from Ashland saying they had some on the way. Castrol emailed back a few hours with a link of where i could buy some (no thanks). Haven't heard from anyone else. Does anyone have any positive experience with this?

I emailed Mobil asking for some M1 oil change decals. Never heard anything back but a few weeks later a fairly large envelope showed up in the mail. Inside was 6 M1 branded oil change stickers, a sheet of various sized M1 stickers and a hand signed letter thanking me for my interest in M1 products.

Wow that's more than I would've expected from Exxonmobil, but really cool to hear...I hope I get some too. I was just very impressed by Valvoline...and somewhat put off by Castrol...they pretty much told me I was **** outta luck lol...

I use a Brother Label Maker myself.
But before when I was cheaper (before a label maker) I used a China Marker (grease pencil in military) and would write up in the corner of the windshield. I'd use a permanent marker and write date/mileage on the filter before getting my oily grubby paws on it. I still use a China marker to write oil hours usage on the generator housing. (i.e. if it has 20hrs, and I run 5, wipe clean and write 25). Lazy or old, probably both, I don't have to go rooting around in the house to and never find where I last wrote it. Post-It notes just fall off to easy.

All the auto parts stores around me have them. I would prefer better ones but I can just cut the drive works logo or whatever comes on them off and it's a plain sticker then.

My former Kendall distributor in Warminster, PA always gave me a stack of them, both the windshield and the door jamb types.

Mobil sent the same to me when I asked.

Also asked SOPUS, I got an email the next day that basically they don't do that anymore due to more restrictive budgets. SOPUS must be taking all that savings and putting it toward the crack staff at the rebate center they use.

I usually just use the top of a post it note.
