 Not to mention it tends to be acidic and contains Products of Incomplete Combustion, especially in diesels, and they contain known carcinogens, ref earlier discussions about wearing gloves when working on engines and not putting oily rags or hands in pockets.

This is true .

Waste engine oil is full of swarf  .


Full of all kinds of junk. Most places i've worked all waste fluids go into one container. It'd be a mix of engine oil, gearbox oil, ATF, brake fluid, petrol, diesel, coolant, etc. I wouldn't want to put it into my saws or even handle the stuff.


Chain oil isn't that expensive. At work they use (new) engine oil, not sure why.
