Peninsula Co-Op deftly plays the role of grocer, convenience store, and service station in outposts across Vancouver Island. A booklet of five car-wash passes entitles its bearer to five touchless carwashes and one roundtrip astral projection. A series of micro lasers vaporizes any wandering insects and maps the contours of each vehicle to determine its size. Two presoak cycles pry dirt and grime loose from exterior surfaces before flushing it all away with two soft water rinses. A Turtle Wax tri-coloured triple-shine treatment adds a luminous sheen that all but guarantees a red ribbon at the next town fair, and a clear coat protectant encases rides in all-weather armour. Any remaining product is swept off its feet by a debonair spot-free rinse, as the Laserdri similarly elopes with any remaining moisture. While the exterior enjoys its spa service, an under-carriage wash blasts filth from beneath, and a tire and wheel cleaner restores tires to a deep black shine and leaves rims clean enough to cut pizza.
Mobil 1 Lube Express in Duncan is a brand new facility that uses tried and true Mobil oil products, which have been around for over a century and keeps all sorts of vehicles in prime condition—from the family car to high performance Formula 1 race cars. The signature oil change, which only takes about 10 minutes, includes 5 litres of conventional or synthetic Mobil oil. However, the shop's technicians can also use Pennzoil, Valvoline, or Total oil for customers whose cars say it's okay. Each oil change also includes a 21-point inspection. Drivers can opt for additional services such as transmission or power-steering flushes, Interstate-brand battery replacements, or Insight wiper-blade installations. The locally owned and operated Mobile 1 Lube Express supports their community by participating in events and fundraisers.
