How to keep thermal receipts from fading

I'm looking at past oil change receipts and they are getting blurry despite laminating over them with box tape and keeping them tucked inside the owners manual away from light. Must be the heat. How can I keep these original records visible so that 20 years down the road one can read them? Perhaps I should scan them. But original is good.

I do my own changes and these receipts in particular are from AutoZone, asked for a reprint and they couldn't go back that far after entering the date, transaction number etc.

I assume you are keeping them stored in your glove box?

I suggest filing receipts in your house where heat and light are non-issues. If you are ever required to show proof that maintenance was done, it shouldn't be too much of a problem to go home and pull the file.

I've never had a warranty claim that required me to prove that I've done the recommended maintenance. Even when the transmission in my last car failed at 108,000 miles (covered by warranty up to 120,000 miles), I wasn't asked to show any maintenance records. They just replaced the tranny with a brand new unit right out of a factory crate; no questions asked.

It's smart to keep your receipts, but I doubt you'll ever be asked to show them. Keep 'em indoors just to be safe and to ensure they're still readable when you need them!

You've never really dealt with Chrysler much then! The oil sludge problems that plague the 2.7L V6, warranty claims were denied to people who had not only factory dealership oil change records but also home oil change records. Chrysler finds ways to weasel out of all sorts of things!

Gucci,

Trust me it's not good news either.. The 2.7L V6 has been plagued with problems since it's inception. Chrysler has tried many things to remedy the issues but the fact is, the engine is a time bomb. The 2.7L in my Stratus (run on Mobil-1 from 24,500 miles on) gernaded at 50K miles. Do a google search for 2.7L Chrysler Oil Sludge. You will not like what you find!

Best way to keep track of your receipts is to get a cheap 256mb jump drive. Scan your receipts into the jump drive, using your computer and printer setup whenever needed. Store the paper copies in the house(although they will eventually fade). You can always take the jump drive, plug it in and print out the past receipts with ease. This works pretty much with all your receipt storing needs
