RECYCLED OIL AT WEST SEATTLE AUTOWORKS: This option has gotten to be so popular at West Seattle Autoworks (WSB sponsor; 35th/Webster) that they’re now making it their “primary service choice,” adding: “Along with making it our primary oil, we will be giving customers a $10 rebate form to be used on their next service! This will help us to further reduce our dependence on imported oil and ‘close the loop’ in the recycling circle.” If you’re wondering how motor-oil recycling works: “The oil is re-refined down to a clear, clean base stock from used motor oil and blended with a synthetic base and an additive package – making it compliant with all current API standards. Recently, Valvoline announced it will also be offering a re-refined blend soon so we are excited to be ahead of the curve and bringing this opportunity to our customers!” You can reach WSAW at 206-257-5344; online at westseattleautoworks.com.
