Universal Lubricants has added two Meineke Car Care Centers of Sioux Falls, S.D., to its growing client base of Eco Ultra motor oil users.
Produced domestically at the company's advanced re-refinery, Eco Ultra is an environment-friendly and American Petroleum Institute (API) certified recycled motor oil that meets Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) requirements and current vehicle manufacturers' specifications.
The U.S. produces approximately 1.3 billion gallons of used oil each year, and only 10% of it is re-refined, reports Universal Lubricants. The overwhelming majority of used oil is either improperly disposed of (damaging the environment) or burned as an industrial fuel and gone forever.
Dedicated to reversing this waste, Universal Lubricants produces Eco Ultra recycled products, which when used for an average five quart motor oil change, reduce the national need to import two barrels of imported oil, every time.
"Eco Ultra empowers consumers and businesses across the nation to be active stewards of the environment and to promote America's shift towards greater energy security. With one simple and affordable switch to our high quality synthetic blend recycled motor oil, anyone can take a stand against avoidable pollution and foreign oil dependence," says John Wesley, chief executive officer of Universal Lubricants.
Utilizing a tightly controlled closed-loop process, Universal Lubricants collects used motor oil from across the country, processes it through the company's technologically advanced refinery, and then blends the re-refined oil into high quality API-certified motor oils and lubricants that meet SAE requirements and current vehicle manufacturers' specifications. To ensure performance and reliability, the company's Eco Ultra products go through rigorous lab testing and are real world proven for the most demanding driving environments.
"At Universal Lubricants we are proud to be a supplier of environmentally friendly motor oil to an ever-increasing number of dealerships and car service centers around the country, delivering an American solution for our energy and environmental challenges," adds Wesley.
