My general comment reflects my efforts to make the right choices that will reduce my environmental impact. I have come to learn that it is not the typical Canadian thing to do. There is an estimated 240 million gallons of oil improperly discarded in the U.S. It's probably not much less in Canada. It only takes a gallons of oil to make a 2 mile oil slick. One gallon will pollute a million gallons of water, making too foul to drink. It takes 35 ppm of oil will kill fish. It takes a bit of time to evaluate and use product options for cost effective vehicle maintenance. Car manufacturers and oil companies make it difficult to buck their customers habits that adhere to the traditional petroleum based lubricants. Synthetics and extended oil change intervals will make a huge reduction on the number of unaccounted for used oil in this country. Car dealers are still padding their bank account with cash from customers who are afraid to yank their chain on using synthetics that go beyond the traditional five or eight thousand or three month oil change interval. I use a product that performs to a minimum of six months or 16,000 kms. whichever comes first. My car dealer knows better than to rattle the chain of a legal department.
