  • Conserves valuable, non-renewable resources
  • Uses up to 85% less energy to produce than conventional oil
  • Exceeds highest North American standards for motor oil performance
  • Guaranteed protection

EcoPower is now available for consumers.
Alamo City Auto Repair & Tires is proud to offer EcoPower Eco-friendly Motor Oil to our customers. We understand the damages that vehicle emissions can cause to the environment and make it a priority to provide our customers with options. Originally produced for governmental agencies, EcoPower is the highest quality of re-refined synthetic oil and has been specially engineered to coat and protect metal surfaces and provide maximum protection against motor oil breakdown. EcoPower has been tested under the most extreme conditions including military vehicles in combat, emergency vehicles, and State Trooper Cruisers.

From the Leader in Oil Re-Refining

EcoPower is refined by Safety-Kleen, the largest re-refiner of used oil in North America. Safety-Kleen’s used oil re-refining process uses up to 85% less energy than the process to make virgin base stocks out of crude oil

  • Closing the re-refining loop conserves valuable, non-renewable resources
  • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions by more than 80%
  • Reduces heavy metals emissions by 99.5%

Used oil is collected from oil change locations across the country and goes through a rigorous quality control process prior to re-refining. The Safety-Kleen closed-loop system significantly reduces greenhouse gases compared to the one-time energy created from burning used oil.

Why EcoPower?

How It's Made

Every year, Safety-Kleen returns more than 140 million gallons of used oil to the marketplace as clean, pure motor oil. Our state-of-the-art processes allow us to fully realize oil’s amazing capacity to be re-refined and reused indefinitely with no loss of quality.

Oil re-refining reduces greenhouse gases and heavy metal emissions when compared to burning used oil as fuel. Re-refining is a better way to manage used oil. It is easier on the environment and transforms oil into a renewable resource.

Safety-Kleen’s advanced re-refining technologies and processes have earned the latest ISO 9001-2000 certification. This relentless commitment to quality helps Safety-Kleen provide the highest performing oil products that meet API, SAE & Military specifications.

FAQ

What vehicles can use EcoPower?
EcoPower can be used wherever API SN oils are specified. Most OEMs specify the use of API SN motor oils for gasoline engines. But a few models specify a synthetic oil. Check your vehicle owner's manual for the specific recommendation for your vehicle.

Which manufacturers approve using re-refined motor oil?
We are not aware of any manufacturers who specifically disapprove of re-refined oil. Manufacturer's approval is based on products meeting desired specifications, i.e. API SN and ILSAC GF-5. EcoPower exceeds these specifications.

What is the re-refining process? Is the oil just cleaned? Is it chemically reformulated?
The process of refining used oil is the same as refining virgin crude oil. Both go through the basic processes, such as dehydration, vacuum distillation and hydro treating. At the conclusion of the re-refining process, the product is chemically altered in the same manner as a virgin product. The end product is identical and must meet the same specifications.

Which is better Castrol, Pennzoil, Mobil, Valvoline or EcoPower?
They all meet the same objective specifications: API SN and ILSAC GF-5. EcoPower takes 85% less energy to produce than products from crude oil. This manufacturing process reduces heavy metal emissions and greenhouse gases so it has less impact on the environment.

Can EcoPower be used in hybrid vehicles? `Most hybrids can use EcoPower. The gasoline internal combustion engine in a hybrid vehicle is the same as a regular vehicle's. EcoPower exceeds the highest North American standards for motor oil performance in gasoline engines. It can be used wherever API SN oils are specified. Follow the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations when selecting the grade of oil.

What if my vehicle requires synthetic oil? Can I use EcoPower?
EcoPower is not a synthetic. Follow the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations when selecting motor oil.
