Motor Oil Done Right

Where to change car engine oil

As often as we drive, it is amazing how little most people know about motor oil facts. For the longest time, I know that I personally would stare at you, dumbstruck if you asked me what motor oil standards were, or what motor oil to use. Then, I did a little research and found out all of the best ways in which to use bulk motor oil.

Bulk motor oil does not really wear out. All that happens to it is it gets dirty. Recycling your motor oil is the most affordable way to deal with your used oil. Not only is this easy on the wallet, but it is the most environmentally friendly way to deal with bulk motor oil as well.

Drivers in the United States produce about 1.3 billion gallons of used motor oil each year. If you buy bulk motor oil, why add to the heaping mounds of trash and pollution by wasting it, when you could just get it cleaned and reuse it almost indefinitely.

When companies produce bulk motor oil, it will take about 42 gallons of crude oil to produce 2.5 quarts of new, top of the line lubricating oil. Recycling just one gallon of this used oil will produce around the same amount. Recycling is always the responsible choice, especially when you are driving a car that is less than green as it is.

Motor oil is not only used in cars. Any vehicle with a combustible engine will require it. Along with the usual suspects such as cars, busses, and trucks, motorcycles, gokarts, snowmobiles, tractors, boats, construction vehicles, aircraft, and even generators will require motor oil to function properly.

One huge risk you take when you do not properly dispose of or recycle bulk motor oil is the danger of improper dumping. When motor oil is irresponsibly dumped into water it can form a scum on top of the body of water, stopping sunlight and oxygen from penetrating the H2O. This will result in the death of many fish, frogs, plants and other life forms. Ecosystems are ravaged from improper dumping.

Please do the right thing with your bulk motor oil.
