Some Big Users
"Ford recommends using engine oil meeting Ford Specification ESE-M2C153-E and licensed as certified for gasoline engines by the American Petroleum Institute (API). Re-refined oils are capable of meeting these requirements. It is Ford's view that a re-refined oil produced with stringent manufacturing controls, batch-to-batch testing of low-temperature viscosity performance and other significant characteristics, would comply with Ford's recommendations."
"G.M recommends for use in its vehicles oils that meet performance requirements specified in the latest Performance Standard and Approval Committee Minimum Performance Standard, and that are certified by the American Petroleum Institute. Oils meeting those requirements can be made with either virgin or re-refined base oils. General Motors encourages the use of properly qualified re-refined products which consistently satisfy recommended performance requirements."
"Chrysler recommends virgin or re-refined engine oils meeting the requirements of API Service category SG of SG/SC and of SAE 5W-30 or 10W-30 for the gasoline engines it sells.
"Detroit Diesel favors the recycling of waste oil and permits the use of re-refined oils in all engine product lines, provided the re-refined oil meets the SAE Viscosity, API, and Military specifications."
