This is the exact same Chevron Havoline premium motor oil and formulations, now in an environmentally responsible, recyclable package – a smarter package!

Smart Change® developed in response to three big trends: social/environmental responsibility 

(less packaging waste in landfills), the sale of full-size pickups, SUVs and European vehicles that 

require six or more quarts of oil, and value - consumer demand for buying a larger quantity which typically comes with a lower price per ounce.

The first is value. You get six quarts for roughly the price of a five-quart jug. It also offers: a 

faster, glug-free pour compared to the five-quart jug, 70% less plastic waste compared to traditional plastic motor oil containers, leaves less residual oil in the bag than six individual quart bottles, and, the corrugate box is 100% recyclable.

Yes. If you pour the oil just as you would from a plastic jug into an oil funnel, you should not get 

oil on the box. However, if you do, simply tear off the soiled portions and recycle the remaining corrugate.

On the side of the Smart Change box, pull out the window flap to get an idea of how much oil is
remaining by gauging the level against the one- and two-quart oil level markers on the box. As always, it is strongly recommended to check your engine oil dipstick to make sure that you have the correct fluid level that the engine requires, and according to the vehicle owners’ manual.

Drain as much residual oil from the bag as possible before putting it into the recycle container. 

Plastic waste that is segregated at the waste transfer station will typically make its way into the manufacture of plastic 2x4s for decking and benches, etc. Recycling practices may differ from state to state and between local municipalities.

Yes. First, start with used motor oil that has been cooled to room temperature. Then make sure the spout is well seated into the channel at the top of the box and flip the corrugate flap back down to hold the spout in place. Insert an oil funnel in the spout and carefully pour your cooled used motor oil into the bag and box. Secure the cap and take it to your local used oil recycler.

The plastic bag inside and fitment or nozzle are designed to withstand temperatures in excess of 

190 degrees Fahrenheit. If you plan to use the Smart Change box to hold and transport used motor oil to a local recycler, it is always recommended for safety purposes to make sure it is cooled to room temperature.

First and foremost, refer to the owners’ manual for the vehicle manufacturers recommended oil viscosity, type and/or specification.  Then, consider your driving conditions. If most of your driving entails: short trips, stop and go rush hour traffic, extreme hot, cold, or dusty climate, and towing – this comes under the severe service definition in the vehicle owner's manual. The best protection for severe drivers is a more rigorous service schedule and use of a high quality, full synthetic motor oil from a trusted brand. The back label on every Smart Change box has a check chart that shows key benefits of different Chevron Havoline motor oils. 

Chevron Havoline is available in select Walmart stores and on in: ProDS® Full Synthetic for those that want the ultimate in engine protection and the ability to withstand severe service and extended oil drain intervals, Havoline High Mileage Synthetic Blend is a well suited for vehicles that have accumulated more than 75,000 miles, and Havoline Motor Oil for standard engine protection.
