Engine Oil And Water Pollution

The impact of motor oil on water pollution is probably not what most people think of when hearing the words "rapid oil loss".


However, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), motor oil is the biggest single source of water pollution in the US.


It is estimated that over 180 million gallons of used motor oil go unaccounted for each year.

Engine Oil And Water Pollution Facts

It only takes four quarts, or about one oil change, of used motor oil to pollute one million gallons of drinking water.    


Used motor oil can contain chromium, lead, petroleum hydrocarbons, aromatic hydrocarbons, or zinc and is highly a carcinogen.
