EPA used oil ruling

March 4, 2011
The Environmental Protection Agency on Feb. 23 issued a rule reversing a proposal that would have undermined the ability of dealerships to burn used oil collected from do-it-yourselfers (DIY) in space heaters by requiring the testing of DIY used oil to ensure that it was "on-spec." 
A dealership’s willingness to collect DIY oil is a key element of its eligibility for the NADA-supported federal Superfund exemption for used oil that issued in the 1990s. 
The decision leaves the EPA’s used-oil burning rules untouched.
