Re: EcoPower Recycled Motor Oil

Here, the vehicles that have This Vehicle Runs on Recycled Oil bumper stickers are fleet vehicles and usually local government.

And my '88 Escort! I've been using burnt oil from my better cars in it for years for topping off oil instead of pouring in a new quart every 1K miles. It still gets an occasional oil change, but they don't come near as often as they use to.

Why burn oil at all? Do you have emissions testing where you live? Cause 'burning oil' can damage the catalytic converter and I think poison o2 sensors, and add to carbon deposits. I don't know, maybe you could do a rebuild or something? I mean while I like the novelty of using old motor oil instead of new oil, the emissions profile of that car must be pretty bad and also a car like that seems likely to be unreliable..

The "old" oil is just as refined as the brand-new oil.
Dirt, chemicals and contaminants are filtered and refined away and the "old oil" is now new oil with a new additive package and is as good as new.

I was talking about the guy who literally takes his old motor oil and puts it into his older vehicle that burns oil.. not talking about the company the reuses motor oil that has been filtered and cleaned.

I know. It's a silly plan.

I once rebuilt a VW engine......imagine the entire thing stuffed with grease.

Re: EcoPower Recycled Motor Oil

Saw the valvoline recycled stuff at work a month ago. They sure think it's good for as much as it costs.

1qt/1000mi is within acceptable spec for some NEW cars. I know some of the VW turbo gas motors had that spec. not so much saying it was fine but that they wouldn't do anything about it unless it exceeded that amount. 1 qt/1k miles isn't gonna hurt the cat.
