Default Recycled oil

Is it any good to use in an eng?

I've been told that oil doesn't wear out it gets dirty, so they "V" cleans it up and repackages it.

What are your thoughts on the product?

As a teenager, we sometimes used "reprocessed" motor oil. Didn't know it was still an option.

Nothing at all wrong with a quality recycled engine oil that meet the mfr. specs.

Is it economically feasible to do that?

I used some in the wife's truck a few years back. It was a "Green Option" and they charged a little more to take advantage of the ecologicaly protective customers. There was a rebate though so for me, it evened out. My step-son thought it got dirty a little too soon but he doesn't really check our oil that often to have a base-line opinion.

Nothing new fleet operators used it for years. When oil prices fell so low it was not worth reprocessing it now with higher cost it is back in favor.

It cost as much as 'first run' oil here. What is the benefit? I am sure it is probably fine. I just don't understand why anyone would pay new oil price for previously used oil.

The posible advantage to it would be no need ro refine it as in crude oil. Thanks to all!~
