EcoPower Setting a New Standard
EcoPower doesn’t just live up to our high standards, it also meets or exceeds the toughest North American standards for engine protection. It’s no wonder the same formulation of motor oil is relied on by some of the largest commercial fleets and U.S. Armed Forces combat vehicles around the world. If EcoPower can handle these demanding conditions, it can handle any of your driving needs.
Different grades, same great quality.
Different vehicles (and different climates) require different levels of performance. Which is why we developed a lineup of green motor oils uniquely formulated to protect your engine.
Whatever grade of motor oil you choose, you can expect dependable performance and superior engine protection across the board. EcoPower is available in the following grades:
5W-30, 5W-20, 10W-30
And if you need further assurance, consider this: our new formulation of EcoPower dexos1™ Synthetic Blend 5W-30 is GM dexos1™ licensed, making it the first engine oil recycled and refined from reclaimed oil to meet GM’s stringent specification.
Frequently Asked Questions
Which manufacturers approve using re-refined motor oil? And are virgin and re-refined oil standards the same?
Manufacturer's approval is based on motor oil products meeting desired specifications and standards, i.e. API SN and ILSAC GF-5 or CJ-4. EcoPower meets or exceeds these specifications. And the standards are the same for virgin and re-refined oils. Check your vehicle owner's manual for the specific recommendation on which motor oil to use.
How long will re-refined oil last?
Re-refined oil lasts as long as conventional oil. You change your oil because it becomes dirty from engine deposits and the additives are depleted over time. The Petroleum base stocks that holds the additive chemistry together never lose their lubricity and can be used over and over again making it a sustainable product.
What is the re-refining process? Is the oil just cleaned?
Safety-Kleen’s process of refining used oil is essentially 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 refining process the product is blended with additives to enhance performance in the same manner as a virgin product. The end product is virtually identical and must meet the same specifications.
What about vegetable oils?
Vegetable and tallow-based oils have not met API specifications and typically cannot pass Sequence III.
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.
It adds up.
Think you can’t make a difference? Consider this: if you start using EcoPower today, in ten years you’ll be preventing, on average, the same amount of CO2 as is emitted by the consumption of 60 gallons of gasoline. Which is equivalent to growing 14 trees for 10 years in an urban environment*. Now imagine the impact if 10 of your friends started using EcoPower for the next 10 years. Together, you’d be preventing as much CO2 emissions as you’d get by consuming 660 gallons of gasoline. Which is equivalent to growing 140 trees for 10 years in an urban environment*. Clearly, that’s a change for the better.
* In other words it’s the equivalent to the carbon sequestered by that # of trees grown for 10 years in an urban environment.
