What do you say when Jay Leno brings his tank car into the shop for an oil change? The answer is yes. You say yes.​

A Korean-war era tank engine is what powers this five-ton, 1100 bhp bespoke car. It has 12 cylinders and two turbos. Quarter-mile times range in the mid- to high-twelve seconds. And according to Jay, it takes about 17 gallons of oil.

To help keep the ever popular Jay Leno's Garage free and accessible to everyone on YouTube, Jay Leno and Jiffy Lube teamed up and created this video. It shows just the tip of the iceberg of what it's like to maintain some of Jay's cars.
