Green Earth Technologies' G-Oil Motor Oil Honored with Editor's Choice Award
(Nanowerk News) Green Earth Technologies' (Pink Sheets:GETG) G-OIL motor oil has been awarded the Popular Mechanics Editor's Choice Award at the ninth annual Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas.
Popular Mechanics' editors singled out G-OIL as one of the best new products of 2007. G-Oil, a motor oil made with American-grown base oils, was recognized for its outstanding achievement in product design and innovation. Further, G-OIL was lauded by the magazine for being, "carbon-neutral, and derived from a domestically-produced renewable resource."
It's the first bio-based, high-endurance motor oil to provide superior performance during the maximum oil change interval recommended by vehicle manufacturers. G-OIL is manufactured from tallow acquired from American farmers. Tallow is culled from beef and has been used to make animal feed, and soap.
"We're thrilled Popular Mechanics recognized G-OIL as a breakthrough product," says Mathew Zuckerman, Ph.D., CEO and President of Green Earth Technologies. "Today, automotive retailers can give consumers a green motor oil that doesn't sacrifice performance, for which they don't have to pay a premium."
