Recycled Motor Oil FAQ

Is recycled motor oil better for the environment than non-recycled motor oil?

Yes. By recycling motor oil, we’re hoping to help prevent used oil from being disposed of improperly and contaminating the soil and water. Recycled motor oil also uses 56% fewer resources compared to oil made without recycled content.

Is Valvoline NextGen™ recycled motor oil just dirty oil that has been cleaned?

No. NextGen™ uses a refining process similar to crude oil refining. The multi-stage refining process removes contaminants and additives to create fresh oil that performs just as good as new. Then special additives are blended to create a recycled motor oil formula with superior performance and protection characteristics compared to specifications. Valvoline has a rigorous quality control process to assure that NextGen meets our highest quality standards.
