Facts about used oil

  • The damage used oil causes comes from mismanagement.
  • Re-refining used oil takes only about one-third the energy of refining crude oil to lubricant quality.
  • One gallon of used oil used as fuel contains about 140.000 Btu of energy.
  • A gallon of used oil from a single oil change can ruin a million gallons of fresh water - a year's supply for 50 people.
  • Concentrations of 50 to 100 parts per million (ppm) of used oil can foul sewage treatment processes.
  • Films of oil on the surface of water prevent the replenishment of dissolved oxygen, impair photosynthetic processes, and block sunlight.
  • Oil dumped onto land reduces soil productivity.
  • Toxic effects of used oil on freshwater and marine organisms vary, but significant longterm effects have been found at concentrations of 310 ppm in several freshwater fish species and as low as 1 ppm in marinelife forms.
