It would be no surprise if Joe has stock in some recycling company.

Well, were they not distillers at one time?

During the young part of my life (mid '60's) the oil Sears sold was said to be recycled.

'Twas said certain nasties were driven from the oil during its first use and that cleansing and refreshment of additives was what you're buying anyway.

The age of the base oil wasn't an issue.

I think it's irresponsible to say it takes 42 gallons of crude to make 2.5 quarts of lubricating oil. This suggests that the rest of the crude is wasted.

Clueless is more likely, somebody inserted that talking point in the speech for them, who needs research?

So does anyone here know how many gallons of crude it takes to make one gallon of dino oil?

Misinformation given the uninformed drones is how the politicians and the media operate.

It's typically about 1-2% base oil refined from a barrel of crude. So ~1.5% of 42 gallons makes about 2.5 quarts.

So that means it takes roughly 66.67 gallons of crude for each gallon of lube oil.

What will happen if so much used oil is rerefined that the used oil consuming industries have to switch to new oil ?

and re-refining drain oil is bad? Where is the down side? Can it be cracked to make other things?

If they re-refine old oil into reusable lubricating oil, does that free up production of crude to make more of something else?

Or is each barrel already worked to its most profitable, and they'd just end up stacking lubricating oil as a byproduct?

I'm sure that the used oil in the tank at Autozone is much cleaner than the crude we get.

Good point Kestas.

People don't realize just HOW many things we use in our everyday lives that crude oil helps make even possible. It's truly quite remarkable if brought to light and thought about.
