How much oil do you need to change your oil?

Most engines require anywhere between 5 to 8 quarts of oil, depending on the engine size. The smaller the engine, the less oil required to fill the volume of the engine. A 4-cylinder engine usually requires around 5 quarts of oil. A 6-cylinder engine uses roughly 6 quarts.

Keeping this in consideration, can you take used oil to AutoZone?

Every AutoZone store accepts used batteries for recycling and 95% of our stores accept used motor oil. See your closest AutoZone store for details. Last year, AutoZone recycled millions of batteries and 9.5 million gallons of oil.

What fluids does AutoZone recycle?

Don't worry about what to do with your used batteries and motor oil. Most AutoZone stores accept used motor oil, transmission fluid, gear oil and automotive batteries. AutoZone recycles 8.5 million gallons of used oil each year. This reduces greenhouse gases and preserves landfill space.

Can you recycle used motor oil?

Oil can be re-refined by removing chemical impurities, or reprocessed into fuel. Your community may also consider it household hazardous waste. Although made of plastic, motor oil bottles have a limited recycling market because they aren't food-grade plastic. Oil filters are mostly made of steel.
