Re: What to do with old oil.....
the waxy buildup on engines back then was most likely from lack of oil changes. I have used,since 1968, probably just about all the different brands of oil that have been on the market, Safeway Grocery store oil was one of them, I had no problems with any buildup on any engine in any vehicle I ever owned. It's a myth!!
I highly doubt Safeway supermarket owned their own oil refinery, so in essence it was name brand oil in a bottle labeled Safeway, which was the point ai believe Leo was making. If you have ever been in an.oil refinery you will find a lot of them bottle oil under many different names and it is all the same stuff from name brand to stuff you never heard of.
