In 1947 Dipstix's parent company, Sayle Oil Company, began operations in Charleston, MS. Owner and General Manager Isaac E "Nookie" Sayle had just come back from WWII, borrowed some money from a relative, and began primarily as a service station with delivery of petroleum products to farms and country stores.
As the economy accelerated through the 50's and 60's, Sayle Oil Company began to concentrate its efforts in surrounding areas opening bulk plants in Greenwood and Clarksdale and also devoting a considerable amount of effort toward service stations and convenience stores.
Beginning in the late 70's the Gas Mart stores came into existence resulting in 13 total stores. In the late 80's, Sayle Oil Company developed its Wholesale Department to include bulk oil, and once again began expanding its farm and consumer business. In 1990, the Propane Division was conceived and has experienced rapid growth during the past years of its operation.
The quick lube department began in January 1994 when the first location in Greenwood, MS was opened as a Havoline Express Lube, a location we still own and operate today. The idea of a "quick lube" was very unfamiliar to the area, but eventually caught on.
In 2006 Sayle Oil created and copyrighted the Dipstix brand. Over the years, most of our quick lube locations have converted to our Dipstix brand.
Today Sayle Oil owns and operates 14 quick lubes and one Service Center in North and Central Mississippi. Of the 14 quick lubes, 9 are branded Dipstix , 4 are branded Shell Rapid Lube , and 1 is branded Service Pro.
Our quick lube department takes pride in fast, convenient oil changes with an emphasis on customer service our customers deserve. We do not see ourselves as salespeople, but consultants to our customers. We strive to make your experience enjoyable every time your vehicle is due for an oil change.
