I got the rebate center number from Valvoline Tech Support, and called them directly. I'd say both times the women I spoke with were rude. That is why I am done with the rebates. It's not worth the hassle for 15.00. Yes, saving money is good, but at first they lost my rebate stuff, and wanted me to resubmit, and then a week later they found it again. I don't know...

Thank you so much, "Since 1941", for your help and response. I'll give them a call. Rude, perhaps, is better than no knowledge of the rebate from the Tracker site.--BTW-I've been here since 1941, also. Thank you, again.

Sorry to hear about the rudeness. Not very professional.

I'm surprised no one asked if the base oil derived from the recycled motor oil is Group II or Group I. duh

Finally got my rebate check in the mail. I think that's all the rebates I go for a long time.

I've been reading this thread to find out if the oil is any good because Advance Auto is running a mail in rebate for $20.00 on the 5.1 Qt jug or 5 individual Qts. I went and picked up a jug for $21.xx with tax. I hope my rebate experience isn't as troublesome as what others on here have had.

I got my BITOG Q&A rebate check for the full amount I paid for the Nextgen Maxlife 10W-40 I bought quickly.
I've gotten every Nextgen rebate I've submitted, including two AZ gift cards and four AMEX gift cards from AAP.
Is the oil any good?
Check the UOA forum for the 4K run I did in my old BMW on Nextgen Maxlife 10W-40.
I was pleased.

Just like XOM with their M1 product.
Based upon the Nextgen oils' API spec, it is a Grp II.

Question. Just because it's API SN, how does that mean its a groupII?

Based off some reading I did some time ago, I don't think that a group I base oil could be used to meet API SN.

With that said, the original basestock could have been group I before it was re-refined by valvoline (or whoever re-refines it if not done by valvoline), but I don't think they use any group I in the final nextgen product.

Hopefully someone will step in and correct me if I am wrong, merely my opinion based off light reading.

No, I was confused, too, but that clarified it. With your mention of M1, I was thinking you meant that API SN implied it couldn't be Group III or IV or V or something like that. wink

The re-refined base oils that are used in Valvoline NextGen products are sourced from our strategic suppliers, who acquire their used oils from varieties of sources.



This blanket statement was used a lot in the answers to different questions.
Guess they don't want to say, can't understand why they don't just say so.
Mumbo Jumbo IMHO.
