Recycled engine oil gets separated to get out the heavy metals. Somehow they can then re-refine it to take care of the chemical by-products also. It is then good enough for fleet use. {Where is Mike/LubeMeister? He prob. knows how they do this}

I think there is or was an EPA loophole that allowed the burning of waste oil. Waste engine oil is about the last thing I'd want to burn... it is extremely toxic. (Unlike new oil, which is rel. non-toxic, tho I still reccommend oilive oil for your salad.)
