West Seattle Autoworks uses Eco Ultra re-refined motor oil as our “house” oil for the majority of our oil change services.
The product is made by recycling used motor oil from shops like ours and re-refining it into a clean, clear base stock (photo examples can be seen in our waiting area) and blending it with a synthetic stock and an additive package – making it compliant with all current OEM standards and API licensed/approved.
By using this new product, we are helping to reduce our dependence on imported crude oil. It takes up to 2 barrels of crude oil to refine enough new oil for one oil change service.
Other companies are catching on – Valvoline announced they are producing a similar product.
We are happy to offer our customers a $10 rebate to mail in after the first service – to be used as a credit on the next service – effectively bringing the subsequent cost down to what a “standard” service would cost.
Feel free to call or e-mail us or just stop by for more information – we have brochures to take home and samples of the product for you to examine.
We look forward to the future and what can be done if we put our minds to it.
All of our fluids are saved and recycled, all of our metal is recycled and we use bulk products when available to reduce the amount of garbage we produce!
