An Environment and Money saver!

The idea of changing your oil every three to six months or 5000 km (3,000 miles) has been pounded  into our heads by the oil change industry for years. It’s been a misconception for years that engine oil should be changed every 3000 miles, even though most auto manufacturers now recommend oil changes at 5,000, 7,000, or even 10,000 mile intervals. Scientifically it is not necessary! Every year in the U.S. alone, these too-short drain intervals result in the unneeded production of 300- 400 million gallons of engine oil, excess consumer expenditures of around $1.5 billion and tens of millions of unnecessary oil changes, not to mention the millions of gallons of waste oil improperly disposed of....and this is just in the U.S.A. alone. Think about the amount of oil wasted and discarded into the environment by the other 194 countries. Canada uses 2.000.000 barrles of oil per day and the US uses 25% of the worlds oil supply. The former CEO of Castrol Oil in the Netherlands Mr. Henk de Groot, has driven one of his test cars 160.000 kilometers (100.000 miles) 22 years without an oil or oil filter change. The car was used mainly for short distances (at low engine temperature) under which circumstances the manufacturers advise to change oil and filters more frequently. What is really important under those circumstances is to check and clean the crankcase ventilation system, mostly neglected under these “Aunt Minnie” driving conditions. Apart from this test car, Mr. de Groot himself, relatives and friends drove scores of cars , mostly under normal conditions, with dipstick chips and better crankcase ventilation control, without oil and filter changes since the early seventies, several up to 200.000 miles. These were a range of engines from 2-cyl. (Citroën 2 CV), 4 cyl. (BMW, FIAT, OPEL, Toyota etc.) 6-cyl. BMW, Ford Mercedes etc., to 8-cyl. Buick, Camaro Chevrolet Caprice engines. After free publicity in all kinds of media (TV, Radio, newspapers and magazines) hundreds of car-, light van and truck owners started using oil saver chips and over the years we received only very positive testimonials without any complaint in nearly 40 years of use ! The latest TV, Radio and large articles in newspapers resulted in a large number of new users on all kinds of cars and trucks again in 2008.(see: Old oil versus New Oil) The Oil Saver chip is made of a special blend of metals. The chip reacts to the protective qualities of the oil, when the quality drops to a certain level the chip will discolor which is the signal that the engine oil needs changing. The chip can be installed in nearly every car or truck and is easily integrated into the oil dip stick.
Do your part Go Green  Don’t Change That Oil! The 3000-Mile Rule is a Myth!In recent studies it was observed that engine oil samples collected from fleet vehicles after 12,000 mile (20,000 km) drain interval showed 10-15% lower friction and more importantly, an order of magnitude lower wear rate than those of fresh oils. It was also observed that the composition of the tribochemical films formed was quite different on the surface tested with the drain oils from those formed with fresh oils. The objective of this investigation was to demonstrate how the friction and wear performance changed with oil drain intervals. A fleet of three vehicles was run in Las Vegas USA and oil samples were collected at various drain intervals from 3,000 miles to 15,000 miles. As in the previous study, the results showed that the aged engine oils provide lower friction and much improved wear protection capability. The California Integrated Waste Management Board states that, 73 percent of California drivers change their oil more frequently than required. This same scenario no doubt repeats itself across the country. Besides wasting money, this translates into unnecessary consumption of oil, much of it imported. Using 2005 data, the Board estimates that Californians alone generate about 153.5 million gallons of waste oil annually, of which only about 60 percent is recycled. Used motor oil poses the greatest environmental risk of all automotive fluids because it is insoluble. One gallon of used oil can foul the taste of one million gallons of water. Oil doesn’t wear out, but rather dirt and impurities cause the oil to lose its ability to lubricate properly.
You Are Changing Your Oil too Frequently!
