WICHITA, Kan., May 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading the green motor oil revolution—Universal Lubricants added Missouri dealerships Frank Leta Honda and Acura (St. Louis, MO) to its growing list of ECO ULTRA® motor oil users. Made in the U.S. at the company's advanced re-refinery, ECO ULTRA® is an environment-friendly and American Petroleum Institute (API) certified recycled motor oil that meets Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) requirements and current vehicle manufacturers' specifications.
"I began selling Honda vehicles in the 1960s, Acura vehicles in 1986, and now I count 2011 as the year I began carrying ECO ULTRA®," said Frank Leta, sole proprietor of both Frank Leta Honda and Frank Leta Acura. "Both Hondas and Acuras have changed over the years, but my commitment to serving the St. Louis community with integrity has always been constant. Offering my customers ECO ULTRA®, a green motor oil option that doesn't sacrifice performance, just seemed like a natural step to uphold the Leta promise—great cars, great service, great products, and great pride. "
"ECO ULTRA® empowers consumers and businesses across the Nation to be active stewards of the environment with one simple and affordable switch to our high quality synthetic blend recycled motor oil," said John Wesley, chief executive officer of Universal Lubricants. "Frank Leta's choice to make a difference in turn gives so many others in the St. Louis community the opportunity do the same."
The U.S. produces approximately 1.3 billion gallons of used oil each year, and only 10% of it is re-refined. The rest of the used oil is either improperly disposed of (damaging the environment) or burned as an industrial fuel and is gone forever. Universal Lubricants is dedicated to reversing this trend by producing ECO ULTRA® recycled products.
Utilizing a tightly controlled closed-loop process, Universal Lubricants collects used motor oil from across the country, processes it through the company's technologically advanced refinery, and then blends the re-refined oil into high quality American Petroleum Institute (API) certified motor oils and lubricants that meet SAE requirements and current vehicle manufacturers' specifications. To ensure performance and reliability, the company's ECO ULTRA® products go through rigorous lab testing and are real world proven for the most demanding driving environments.
"At Universal Lubricants we are proud to be a supplier of environmentally-friendly motor oil to growing number of dealerships around the country, and deliver an American solution for our energy and environmental challenges," added Wesley.
