A. Re-refined oils have proven to be successful alternatives. Today’s re-refining process for base oils – when combined with the high-performance additive technology – can rival the performance of their virgin base oil counterparts.

The challenge is not necessarily the performance of the re-refined oil, but the education needed to overcome the perception of the re-refined concept. Re-refined products are growing in popularity as a result of attention to conservation and the environment.
