Green revolution in auto-industry
Firestone Autocare shops in two American States are test marketing the use of twice-refined, used motor oil during routine car servicing.
The mind boggles that sufficient oil is available for collection, re-refining, and distribution to justify the program.
However, economics will determine whether the program is ultimately successful or not.
Recycling used oil uses 85% less energy than processing oil from new, Firestone executives claim. Many parallels to recycling tyres by retreading them can be drawn.
Good on them for having a go.
