Thinking of driving long-distance anytime soon? Whether you are planning a summer trip to some vacation hotspot or a visit to friend or family miles away, you will probably check your vehicle to see if it’s up to the task before you get behind the wheel. Unless you’ve changed your oil and filter recently, replacing them should be a ‘must’ on your pre-travel prep list.

“Fresh oil and filter keep a vehicle’s engine free of dirt and grime and ensure its longevity and lasting performance,” said Chuck Kerrigan, Director of Marketing for Filtration Americas a business unit of Robert Bosch LLC. Bosch offers oil, fuel and cabin air filters to the North American aftermarket.

From April 3 to October 29, 2011 Bosch is running the Big Savings Rebate Program that offers motorists in the United States a rebate on both, Bosch DistancePlus™ oil filters and Premium oil filters.

Bosch’s Big Savings Rebate Program offers drivers a $5 rebate on the purchase of any Bosch DistancePlus Oil Filter and a $2 rebate on any Bosch Premium Oil Filter. This rebate is valid on purchases made at participating retailers.

“Compared against a leading economy filter,” said Kerrigan, “the Bosch DistancePlus high performance oil filter goes the distance with a 99.9 percent efficiency rating to remove more dirt and is designed with 300 percent greater capacity to hold more dirt. These features allow a car’s engine oil to remain clean – longer. Over time, this ability to screen out contaminants minimizes engine wear and ensures longer life and performance.” Most important, the Bosch DistancePlus oil filter works with all brands of synthetic or conventional motor oils.

Also included in the Big Savings Rebate Program, are Bosch Premium Oil Filters that feature Bosch FILTECH technology. According to Kerrigan, “FILTECH technology utilizes an exclusive blend of natural and synthetic materials to offer superior oil filtration and better protection against engine wear.”

The Bosch’s Big Savings Rebate Program provides up to four filter rebates per household address with a maximum payout of $20 per household. The rebate forms are available at participating retailers and also online at
