The FRAM-ology Grand Prize presentation will take place at 1:00 pm Saturday October 17th at the Canadian Tire location on Sheppard Ave. East in Willowdale. On hand to congratulate Colin and his mom Josephine, who student Colin has invited along with him, will be Canadian Tire Store Dealer Eric Sellors and GM Ray Irwin, Dean Wilson of Honeywell and Marlain Weitzes of Travel Professionals International.

"I have been a regular user of FRAM oil filters for many years…. I do my own oil changes instead of spending the time to line up and the money for something that I can do myself. The most important reason though is the satisfaction of getting my hands dirty knowing that I am doing important maintenance to my own vehicles", commented Colin.

FRAM oil filters' engine protection ratings system makes it easy for consumers to make the best choice for their vehicle. FRAM also reminds consumers not to forget the air filter to protect their vehicle's engine. Changing the air filter regularly helps prevent excessive engine wear, allows consistent air flow and less restriction, and improves engine performance.

"We want to extend our warmest congratulations to Colin and Josephine Leung" said Dean Wilson, National Sales Manager for Honeywell Consumer Products Group. "Regardless of whether you change your own filters or use a trusted service provider such as Canadian Tire, FRAM provides superior quality products, making it easy for consumers to properly maintain their vehicles and protect one of their biggest investments".
