MILWAUKEE, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Are you an engine expert or do you have trouble telling the difference between an air filter and an Instagram filter? A few minutes with Briggs & Stratton Corporation's Maintenance IQ quiz can tell you where you stand when it comes to lawn mower smarts.
"The Maintenance IQ quiz was developed as a fun way to address gaps in knowledge about how to best maintain your lawn mower for optimal performance and to keep it running for a long time," explained Carissa Gingras, director of marketing, global support for Briggs & Stratton. "Our research shows that many new homeowners know very little about the mechanics of a lawn mower, and as the world's leading small gas-powered engine manufacturer, we wanted to help educate them in an engaging way."
The Maintenance IQ tool consists of three quizzes, each with a specific learning objective:
- How well do you know your lawn mower?
- Keeping it fresh: Changing your mower's engine oil
- Troubleshooting 101
The quiz results are sharable through social media and those who take a quiz and enter their email address are entered to win one of ten ultimate Briggs & Stratton service kits, which includes a tune-up kit, an oil extractor kit, Briggs & Stratton engine oil, Briggs & Stratton Advanced Formula Fuel Treatment and Stabilizer and a $25 Amazon gift card.
