Manufacturers of vehicles and engines such as: Ford, GM, Chrysler and Mercedes Benz, have established in their records that using API-certified refined oils does not affect their warranty coverage. In fact, Mercedes-Benz uses re-refined oils in the engines of its new vehicles in its factories.
∞ Oil Used oil can be continuously refined without compromising lubricant quality. Remember: oil never breaks down, it just messes and pollutes.
∞ As with any oil change, follow the recommendations made by the manufacturer of your car, truck, or equipment.
∞ Nothing at all. Metalub's re-refining processes ensure quality and performance.
∞ Oil Re-refined oil uses base oil that has been recovered from used oils instead of base oil that has been refined from crude oil. Metalub uses cutting-edge technology to create highly refined oils from used oils. Industry experts believe that re-refined base oils are superior to refined base oils from crude oil, because it is a used oil that is continually refined. The main difference between re-refined oil and virgin oil products is that re-refined oils are the responsible choice for the environment.
∞ Oil Re-refined base oil is the end product of a long process involving used oils. These oils are first cleaned of their contaminants, such as dirt, water, fuels and the used additives, through high vacuum distillation and solvent extraction. The oil is then hydrotreated to remove the remaining chemicals. This process is very similar to traditional refineries used to remove base oil from crude oil. Upon completion of the refining process, Metalub base oil is blended with new industry leading additives to improve performance in the same way as a product with virgin crude oil bases. The final product is specifically identical and must meet the same specifications.
∞ Miles of different cars, trucks and fleets (including emergency vehicles) around the world use re-refined oil. In California, it has some of the strictest environmental regulations in the world, some of the users of these lubricants are: Coca-Cola, United Parcel Service, California Highway Patrol, Southern California Gas, Los Angeles County, city of Sacramento, Waste Management, the Postal Service, Frito-Lay, Caltrans, City of San Francisco and Ventura County. Re-refined oil is used even on the NASCAR racing circuit.
∞ Yes. Regenerated used oil does not pollute the air, soil or water. Regenerated oil also uses fewer resources compared to virgin oil.
∞ Oil Re-refined oil, a renewable resource, is designed to reduce the environmental impact of used oils by conserving valuable petroleum resources. Refining used oils is an efficient and environmentally beneficial energy management method. Less energy is needed to recover one gallon of re-refined base oil than one gallon of crude oil base oil. Refined oil uses about a third less than the energy of refining crude oil for quality base oils. Rather than using oil once, re-refining extends the life of an exhaustible resource by turning it into a usable material that can be recovered and used over and over again. Vehicle owners can "close the cycle of sustainable recycling" by delivering their used motor oil to the Metalub collection center and purchasing motor oil that has been used, re-refined, and returned to store shelves and shelves by Metalub for reuse. Metalub oil is not only good for the environment, it is also competitively priced against regular motor oil. Buy METALUB and reduce Costa Rica's dependence on imported oils and help create new jobs.
∞ Recycling Recycling the motor oil in your car, truck or motorcycle is a way that demonstrates your commitment to protect the environment of Costa Rica and for future generations while conserving energy resources. By recycling, we keep used motor oil out of rivers, streams, and lakes. We can also keep oil out of our groundwater supplies that can affect drinking water. Re-refined oil saves energy and is a non-renewable, valuable, and expensive resource.
∞ Majority Most of the used oil in Costa Rica is burned as cheap fuel by various industries. Waste oil that does not burn is poured into landfills and rivers, the worst-case scenario for the environment. Now Costa Rica already has a better alternative than throwing away or burning used oil, it is Metalub! Oil Improperly discarded used oil can end up in rivers, drains, landfills, farmland, and backyards. In all these cases, the soil, groundwater and drinking water will be contaminated. The used oil, poured into the pipe resulting in the contamination of the water tables in your community and that costs money. Leaking used oil can pollute Costa Rica's pristine beaches and harm its wildlife. In Costa Rica, according to its legislation, the improper disposal of used oil is a crime. Nations The United Nations, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). USA And Metalub believe the best way to use used motor oil is to refine it into motor base oils that have the same API specifications for virgin crude oil base oils.
∞ Oil Oil is an essential part of the life of your engine. It keeps your car running efficiently through all kinds of inclement weather and extreme work. But, the oil gets dirty and when this happens it can clog the engine parts. To help maintain the life of your car, follow the recommendations in your vehicle owner's manual.
∞ Send the used oil in a clean plastic container with a closed lid. Never store used oil in a container that contains chemicals, food or beverages including transmission fluid, antifreeze, solvents or paint. Store it away from children and away from sources of inflammation. Don't forget to drain the used oil from the filter.
∞ Used oil filters can also be recycled. First, make sure the oil is completely drained from the filter. Many recycling centers, including those affiliated with Metalub, will receive the filter itself drained, although it is acceptable to dispose of the filter once it has been completely drained in household waste.
∞ Many of the places that sell Metalub accept used oil. Most service stations, repair shops and quick lubricants will accept your used oil at no cost. Check with your local government or Metalub for collection procedures and services in your area. Or check the list of collection centers affiliated with Metalub. Contact us to find the nearest recycling center.
∞ Many vehicle manufacturers have put on record stating that using re-refined oil does not affect their warranty coverage. As long as it is an API certified oil, it doesn't matter if the oil is re-refined with mineral, synthetic, partially synthetic or hydrotreated base oil.
∞ The Ford factory, based on the criteria of the American Petroleum Institute (API), recommends the use of motor oil with the ESE-M2C153-E specifications and under the license for gasoline and diesel engines. Consequently, re-refined oils are capable of meeting these requirements and it is the responsibility of the lubricant vendors who require their products to meet these requirements on a continuous and consistent basis. General Motors ∞ The company General Motors recommends using oils that meet the latest performance requirements in their vehicles, in the latest report of "Performance Standard", accepted by the Minimum Performance Standards Approval Committee, and that they be certified by the American Petroleum Institute (API). Therefore, the oils that require these requirements can be manufactured with refined or virgin base oils. For this reason, the company General Motors, promotes the use of properly certified re-refined oils, which constantly satisfy all the recommended performance requirements. Chrysler Ch "Chrysler does not condemn or endorse re-refined oils, it recommends motor oils that meet the requirements of service category API SG of SG / SC and SAE 5W-30 or 10W30 for the gasoline engines it sells " Detroit Diesel ∞ The Detroit Diesel factory favors the re-refining of used oils and allows their use in all engine production lines, as long as the refined oil meets the viscosity specifications of the SAE, API and military
Leading by example is not the main way to influence others; it’s the only way.
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than talented unsuccessful men.
Never doubt that a small, committed group of people can change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that has succeeded.
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.
Food for thought: Earth is 4.6 billion years old. We are going to scale that to 46 years. We humans have been here for 4 hours. Our industrial revolution started 1 minute ago. At that time, we have destroyed more than 50% of the world’s forests.
Vision without action is just a dream. Action without vision is a waste of time. But with vision and action we can change the world. – Nelson Mandela
