These facilities are those that provide oil changes, but they are not the primary business. Examples of such locations include full-service auto care centers, lube and tire stores, tune-up shops, repair shops, muffler shops, etc. The study is similar to the Fast Lube Operator Survey, conducted each September by NOLN, which is used to evaluate the success of fast lube operations. Survey data is presented below and compared to the 2015 Fast Lube Operator Survey data and 2014 Oil Change-Plus Survey data for reference points. Survey data was gathered from questionnaires, via phone interviews and mailed directly to operators. The responses for the 2015 Oil Change-Plus Survey account for 2,864 facilities and include facilities operating in all 50 states. 2015 2014 2015 (Fast Lube) (Oil Change-Plus) (Oil Change-Plus)
