It’s Called MFA Oil for a Reason

Written By Mark Fenner
What’s in a name? Well, in our case it describes our business and why we are here. For decades, MFA Oil has been known as a dependable supplier of fuels and propane with a deep appreciation of our farmer-owners. But what about oil? While we do sell a significant volume of lubricants, we feel we have only scratched the surface of what is available to us.
We want you to understand that we offer the highest quality products available for your vehicle, tractor or combine. Our excellent lubricant products are backed by a warranty program to give you peace of mind that MFA Oil products won’t compromise your equipment. We often run into scenarios where the big implement dealers will give you, the customer, the perception that if you were to use someone else’s lubricant product, your warranty would be voided. The only possible way this could be legally truthful is if the dealer gave you the lubricant for free.
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975 states it is illegal for a warrantor to require you to purchase their branded products to maintain the warranty. The next time your implement dealer declares your warranty will be voided if you don’t use their product, please ask for it in writing. Guess what? You won’t get it.
Our lubricants are of the highest quality and are comparable or better than any product offered by your implement dealer or any other supplier. Not only are we providing excellent quality, in most cases, buying MFA Oil brand lubricants will provide substantial cost savings compared to our competition. Additionally, we pay significant patronage refunds on our fuel, propane and lubes. In 2016, we paid 83 cents in patronage per unit of oil back to our farmer-owners, and 80 percent of that was in cash.
To make buying lubricants from us convenient, we offer the option of packaged products and bulk delivery to your farm. Our bulk systems eliminate the need to carry heavy drums and containers. We’ve also recently added our lubricant products to most of the local MFA Agri Services Centers.
