Motor OIL...

OK, so we have had discussions about the type, how often and who to buy from. Regardless of the type you use and how often you change it, you still have dirty oil stored in something, can I ask what everyone does with it? Proper way to get rid of it?
Anyone?

The guy I lease my office from is a mechanic and he lets me dump it in his barrel. I think Pep Boys lets you dump for a fee though

Proper way would be to recycle it. Take it to murrays or someplace. They i know do not charge for it or continue doing what you have been doing and i am certain we know what that was.

Well, I havent been doing anything, last year I owned a cruiser and bought it with a fresh oil change and sold it before I had to change it

This year I have a sports bike, and well, I changed the oil and have it sitting in the garage, I want to do the right thing but cant seem to find a place in my neck of the woods, so I turned to the board for suggestions

I thought most of the quick oil change places would let you dump it there? Up here, the Valvoline place will let you bring in 5 gallons at a time for free.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

I change oil and filter every 3K miles. I usually put the oil in a milk carton and let it sit around my garage until I get too much clutter. Then I drop it off at the nearest Jiffy Lube, they'll recycle it for ya.

Amsoil has a higher Zinc content which is better for your motor.

In all honesty Mobil one is a very good oil. but amsoil is still better. I wouldnt sell it if I didnt believe in it.


Here read this.

Tony (without reading) does Amsoil make a synthetic blend?

Any opinion on synthetic blend as well?

Just thought i would bastardize the thread a little.

I use Amsoil. I love it. I believe you can really feel the difference...especially in your shifts.

I use the 10w 40 Synthetic motorcycle blend

Alright guys, I have heard several theorys on the whole synthetic thing vs. standard as well as a lot of different opinions on minimum miles required with standard prior to a switch, what are your thoughts?
