    Question what mechanics do to used engine oil ?

    hi salam and happy ramzan

    i have always wondered what mechanics do to the used engine oil ? do they do something to it and resale it unscrupulously ? or they just pour it somewhere... ?

    got this info from a site
    http://www.recycleoil.org/faqs/index.html
    What is recycled motor oil used for?

    Used motor oil can be reprocessed into fuel that can be used in furnaces for heat, or in power plants to generate electricity for homes, schools and businesses. It can also be used in industrial and utility boilers, blended for marine fuels, and other uses. Used motor oil can also be re-refined into lubricating oils that meet the same API specifications as virgin motor oil.

    SO WHAT IS DONE TO IT IN PAKISTAN?
    thanks

    ^ Yea yea I forgot the service station part lol
    Although i never get my bike washed from these Service Centers, did once, and it was a bad experience because i myself could wash my bike 10 times better than those people. Anyway , i've heard that they use the Mobile Oil to Shine the Mudguards etc ...
    Seriously ....

    Sell it to people who recycle it and refill it in used branded Oil bottles and sell them to shops to be sold as brand new original oil : look for activated fuller's earth in google, it's just the basic concept.

    they collect it in big drums. once a week or something some collection van comes.
    they get good money selling the used oil.

    Recycle.
    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

    My mechanic collects it in a drum so as soon as it fills up a guy on bike comes in and gets it for around 1000 or 2000 Rs.

    But from last few oils changes bcoz i channge oil early a taxi wala gets a missed call and he comes in and uses my used oil in his taxi hmm..
