Re-Refined Oil New Direction For Fleets

“Used” oil making a complete cycle back into vehicles; Eco-friendly lubricants such as ECO ULTRA provide benefits on multiple fronts


Putting re-cycled engine oil into  your fleet’s pickups might not sound like a good idea.

But that trend is rapidly picking up the pace as fleet mangers see the benefits and the quality of these new Eco-friendly lubricants. One such brand is ECO ULTRA, produced by Universal Lubricants in Wichita, KS.

ECO ULTRA is an American Petroleum Institute (API) licensed line of automotive and industrial lubricants that rely on used oil as feedstock to its re-refinery that produces top quality sustainable base oil.  

This re-refined oil meets Original Equipment Manufacturers’ (OEM) specifications and Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) requirements.

Eco Ultra re-refined engine oil becoming a favorite of fleet service managers.

It’s increasingly being selected as the motor oil of choice for a growing number of auto dealerships and fleets across the country.Of a typical 42-gallon barrel of crude oil, only one-half gallon is suitable for lubricating purposes.

As such, it takes two barrels of crude to produce one gallon of motor oil. By choosing ECO ULTRA, Superior Honda of Omaha’s customers have eliminated the need for more than 4,000 barrels of crude.

“The reasons to opt for motor oil made from re-refined base oil are compelling,” said Tim Twight, Superior Honda of Omaha’s Service Manager.

“There’s the performance aspect: the quality of a motor oil is determined by the sophistication of the re-refining technology along with its additive package.
