We believe that it’s important to do our part to protect our earth.  If you’re searching for an ethical repair shop in the Fargo, ND & Moorhead, MN areas that participates in used oil recycling, choose us at Matt’s Automotive Service Center!  Not sure what that means or why it’s important?

“Every year, approximately 800 million gallons of motor oil are used in U.S. cars and trucks.  When you consider that one gallon of motor oil can contaminate up to one million gallons of drinking water, you can see the importance of ensuring that all of those gallons make their way to a recycling center.”  –Valvoline

The oil refining process for used oil recycling has significantly advanced over the past decade.  It’s interesting because new research results have indicated that running recycled motor oil in your vehicle can actually be better for it, than using brand new regular oil!  Check out the video below by Valvoline to learn more about the recycled oil refining process.  It’s only about 3 minutes long and is very educational and informative!  Remember it’s best to know what is being put into your vehicle to ensure you extend the life of it.  Yes, we are an official certified provider of Valvoline Oil at Matt’s Auto.

At Matt’s Automotive Service Center we pride ourselves in being an ethical repair shop and it is why we partnered with East Side Oil Company to properly recycle all our used motor oil and used oil filters from every auto maintenance services and auto repair services, like oil changes that are performed and completed at both our locations in Fargo, ND and Moorhead, MN.  Contact us if you have any questions about our used oil recycling participation, or schedule an appointment with us to have your oil changed and vehicle inspected by our ASE certified team at Matt’s Auto.
