Abstract:
G-OIL® SAE 5W-30 is the World's First Bio-Based Motor Oil to Achieve American Petroleum Institute's Highly Coveted "SM" Certification

Green Earth Technologies' G-OIL(R) Rolls Out At Honest-1 Auto Care(TM)

Stamford, CT | Posted on January 13th, 2010

Green Earth Technologies (Pink Sheets: GETG) announced today that their G-OIL Ultimate Biodegradable green motor oils will now be sold at Honest-1 Auto Care(TM), a national full-service auto repair and maintenance franchise chain. Honest-1 Auto Care is 100 percent ESA(TM) Certified Eco-Friendly Auto Care and is committed to offering consumers sustainable and green alternatives at each of their 20 locations. This announcement comes on the heels of a deal with National Auto Stores and Amazon.com for G-OIL distribution.

G-OIL went through Honest-1's stringent performance tests and will be rolled out to all stores by mid-January. G-OIL SAE 5W-30 is also the first and only bio-based motor oil to pass all the engine test criteria for The American Petroleum Institute (API) SM Certification and be officially granted the API "Donut."

"Honest-1 Auto Care has been a pioneer in the automotive space, offering environmentally friendly and sustainable products years before their competitors," says Jeffrey Loch, Green Earth Technologies' Founder and CMO. "We are proud to have G-OIL motor oil sold in their stores as our company strives to create a new GREEN solution within the motor oil category."

"We are committed to providing our customers with a wide range of high quality automotive products such and are proud to work with Green Earth Technologies and endorse G-OIL, a real game changer in the motor oil industry. As we begin this new year, we hope to see a rise in sustainable and eco-friendly offerings following the lead of Green Earth Technologies," said Rissy Sutherland, Senior Vice President/Operations of Honest-1 Auto Care.

G-OIL is the world's lowest petroleum, "eco-friendly," ultimate biodegradable motor oil priced comparatively to synthetics and similarly performing products. Unlike traditional petrochemical-based motor oils from leading manufacturers, Green Earth Technologies' G-OIL is made with American-grown renewable animal fats. These saturated fats, whose molecular single-bond carbon chains are similar to common petroleum oils, have no harsh effects on the environment, and drastically cut our dependence on foreign oil.
