Default Valvoline introduces NextGen recycled motor oil

What's your thoughts about recycled oil.
Sorry Valvoline, but I'm not buying it.

Im not buying it either. Cuz how are you gonna put back the viscocity in oil that was lost when it was inside an engine? I know oil breaks down and I wont trust an oil that has been "redone" or "rebuilt" to last like fresh motor oil does.

I wouldn't run it in my race car :!:

But I might try it in my daily driver that has 316,708 miles on it. If the stuff is like half price. :lol: :lol:

Back in the 60's we had 'recycled/rejuvenated' CHEAP oil. All our clunker hot rod cars burnt so much oil we used it. I wouldn't put it in my lawnmower now though. IMHO

The viscocity will depend on the amount of gear oil in the batch yours comes out of...
