WICHITA, Kan., March 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading the green motor oil revolution—Universal Lubricants added Colorado dealership Flatirons Imports Acura/Subaru (Boulder) to its growing roster of ECO ULTRA® motor oil users. Made in the U.S. at the company's advanced refinery, ECO ULTRA® is a green re-refined American Petroleum Institute (API) certified motor oil that meets Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) requirements and current vehicle manufacturers' specifications.
"This product is great—now we have a high quality green motor oil option for our customers and selling it gives us a chance to do our part in conserving energy and protecting the environment," said Michael Boudrieau, managing partner of Flatirons Imports. "For over 20 years, Flatirons Imports has been providing residents from Denver, Boulder, Broomfield, Longmont, and Westminster high quality products, excellent service and the widest selection of new and used Subaru and Acura vehicles."
"With ECO ULTRA®, consumers and businesses across America now have the freedom to switch to an affordable, environmentally-friendly and high quality synthetic blend motor oil without sacrificing performance," said John Wesley, chief executive officer of Universal Lubricants. "We appreciate Flatirons Imports commitment to making a difference."
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.
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.
"Universal Lubricants is proud to be a supplier of environmentally-friendly motor oil and lubricants to drivers nationwide, and deliver an American solution for our energy and environmental challenges," added Wesley.
Universal Lubricants operates 28 facilities in 14 states, including a branch in Denver, Colorado. For more information about Universal Lubricant's ECO ULTRA® products, visit www.ecoultraoil.com.
