In order to estimate the magnitude of dispersed sources of used oil, the methods of used oil disposal and consumer attitudes towards oil purchases (especially the purchase of recycled oil) Part II of this study was made of the purchase attitudes and disposal practices of persons who buy automobile crankcase oil in discount stores and subsequently change their own oil. A questionnaire was prepared and used in interviews with approximately 600 persons who were buying oil at discount stores in Oakland, California. A copy of the questionnaire is contained in this report. The results of the survey were analyzed. The results of this analysis form the basis of this report.
