An Environmentally Friendly Solution to Oil Leakage
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.
