Arrow ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyone who has ever bought from STAR PETROLEUM IN DETROIT READ

I don't have all the details, but long story short... If you have bought ANY OIL, ANTIFREEZE, or chemicals from them... Throw it out and dispose of it the proper ways... It turns out they were selling oils/anti-freeze/chemicals that weren't ASE cert. The state came in and shut them down... It's still all getting sorted out....




Update from the state...

Dispose of it the proper way... For you? Just submerge your head in the oil and take deep breathes... You'll be golden...

holy shit, that is where I buy my oil from. Pallets upon pallets. Two employees are dumping them into the dumpster right now. Thank you for the heads up.

Perfect... Make sure you take your hand and stick it down the garbage disposal while it's running so you can help clear out the sludge...

Great idea. Throw it out instead of being cautious, setting it aside and waiting to see if it's bad or not. After all, no one will contact you or anything. Better to just throw away thousands of dollars of product.

So because they weren't certified that's means the oil and antifreeze aren't any good?

I decided I'm just going to bring it all down to Detroit and dump it. No one will notice anyway.

If you throw out oil in the garbage you need your head examined... It is bad... Don't use it... take the proper measures to dispose of it... I had 20k anti-freeze not oil...and stuff that's no good... The only thing you really can do is contact the state and take them to court...


EDIT: put oil instead of anti-freeze...

Correct it doesn't meet up to the standards of ASE. Which in turn has already cost people thousands in repairs... It's illegal to sell the chemicals with the ASE seal when it's not... Highly illegal...
