The FRAM-ology Grand Prize presentation will take place at noon on Monday October 19th at the Canadian Tire location on Regent Avenue West in Winnipeg. On hand to congratulate Mr. & Mrs. Albo, who celebrate their 31st Wedding Anniversary this month as well, will be Canadian Tire Store Dealer Laddie Hutchinson and GM Joe Casciano, Dean Wilson of Honeywell and Penny Martin of Travel Professionals International.

"I know air filters are a matter of preference and I prefer FRAM products because of their superior reputation for high quality and performance. My car is approaching 275,000 km and I think that it needs all the help it can get!", commented Ted.

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 Ted and Doris Albo" 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".
