As Super-Lube's name suggests, its signature service is the oil change. Technicians at its more than 50 locations lubricate engines with up to five quarts of premium oil. The comprehensive service, which requires no appointment, also comes with a 20-point maintenance check, and a free fluid top-off between changes. The technicians' handiwork extend beyond oil changes, too—they can change radiator fluid, swap out fuel filters, and replace broken windshield wiper blades.

The shop's technicians swiftly tackle even the most complicated issues, sometimes completely reworking what's under the hood using Jasper engines and transmissions. Bonus services include after-hours drop off and pre-trip inspections.
Chevron not only gasses up grownup go-karts, but also buffs out and shines up fuel-injected four wheelers with the Ryko FoamBrite car-wash system. Customers can bring in their mucky motorcar for a deluxe wash ($5) that includes the FoamBrite wash and foam bath, giving the auto a lively spray down that disintegrates dirt and grime and erases the clever limericks left in dusty verse on the rear windshield. Next, a spot-free rinse and drive-thru dry eradicate blemishes and leave customers' cars glistening, like a freshly lacquered sunbeam. With the premium wash ($7), road huggers receive the same treatment, plus an underbelly scrub and poly sealant. The Works wash ($9) adds a prewash and triple-foam shampoo to the foamy fusion, bringing out the true richness and luster of the auto's epidermis. Additionally, wheels are rubbed to a glossy sheen before road warriors are released to prowl the asphalt jungle.
