Advance Auto Parts and Valvoline are teaming up in an effort that they say benefits both engine performance and the environment. Consumers can now return their used oil to any of the more than 3,300 Advance Auto Parts stores nationwide and purchase Valvoline NextGen to help "Close the Loop." When they do, they will receive a special offer: Advance Auto Parts will reward those who "Close the Loop" with a $20 mail-in gift card offer.

Valvoline NextGen motor oil is made of 50 percent recycled motor oil and delivers 100 percent Valvoline quality and protection, securing optimum engine protection while lessening our dependence on foreign crude and preserving existing resources, the company says.

American cars and trucks use more than 3 billion quarts of motor oil annually, of which 200 million gallons or more is not disposed of properly, according to Valvoline. Using NextGen, the company says, helps ensure used oil doesn’t find its way into our water supply, where it can have a myriad of harmful effects. Just 1 gallon of improperly disposed motor oil can contaminate up to 1 million gallons of drinking water.  Compared to non-recycled motor oil, NextGen uses 48 percent less fossil fuels, emits 40 percent less harmful and acidic emissions, and has 20 percent less global warming impact.

"We are excited about the ‘Close the Loop’ program and proud to partner with Advance Auto Parts," said Darryl Gaines, Valvoline brand manager. "NextGen has experienced great success because it delivers optimal performance and environmental benefits. The ‘Close the Loop’ program is a way to continue to encourage behavioral change that can help decrease our reliance on crude oil drilling by re-using the resources we have available."

"Using NextGen motor oil is a simple way to do the right thing while still reaping the benefits of a high-quality product," said John Lammers, product solutions director at Advance Auto Parts. "We are excited to see our customers getting on board, and as always, we are here to collect and recycle their used oil so dispose of your used oil properly and bring it in to your local Advance Auto Parts."

NextGen was introduced to the motor oil category last year. Last fall, NextGen technology was put through extensive validation testing across NASCAR and NHRA, earning approval from some of motorsports’ top teams – including Don Schumacher Racing and Roush Fenway Racing.

NextGen motor oil is available in conventional and MaxLife formulations.
