Green Earth Technologies Introduces America’s First Green Motor Oil

MENLO PARK, CA | Posted on November 5th, 2007

A new day has dawned for Americans who want to save the Earth by going green, but don't want to pay a premium or sacrifice performance in the process. Today, Green Earth Technologies (Pink Sheets:GETG) introduced G-OIL, a revolutionary, totally green biodegradable motor oil guaranteed to protect engines as well as the leading brands, but without the environmental hazards or dependence on foreign oil.

Available for the estimated $7 billion US Market in a full range of performance levels and viscosities, G-OIL is safe to use in any gasoline, diesel, or hybrid engine. It's the first bio-based, high-endurance motor oil to provide superior performance during the maximum oil change interval recommended by vehicle manufacturers.

An estimated four gallons of foreign oil can be saved with each G-Oil five quart oil change. In the manufacture of traditional petroleum-based motor oil, it takes nearly three barrels of oil to make one barrel of product; whereas Green Earth scientists have developed a way to yield one barrel of product from one barrel of animal fat.

G-OIL is manufactured from tallow acquired from American farmers. Tallow is culled from beef and has been used to make animal feed, soap, and no longer used for cooking. G-OIL is made utilizing a proprietary process that converts tallow from a solid raw material into completely biodegradable motor oil for gasoline and diesel engines as well as hybrid cars.

G-OIL was launched to retailers at the 2007 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX), the world's largest trade show for the $267 billion automotive aftermarket industry, being held last week at the Sands Expo & Convention Center, Las Vegas.
