Green Earth Technologies' G-Oil, Green Motor Oil Passes Third-Party Tests

(Nanowerk News) Green Earth Technologies (Pink Sheets:GETG) today announced receipt of initial testing data from a leading independent third-party testing facility indicating G-Oil, its brand of environmentally-friendly motor oil, thus far meets the relevant standards and is comparable in quality to those of commercially available synthetic and crude oil based motor oil.
Mathew Zuckerman, CEO and president of G.E.T., stated, "It is well established that consumers are craving green products, but most consumers refuse to sacrifice performance in the process. The results of these tests and future tests will be helpful in demonstrating to retailers, as well as consumers, that G-OIL has qualities and performance capabilities at least as good as the comparable petroleum-based products."
G-OIL is a revolutionary "green" biodegradable motor oil made from beef tallow that reduces environmental hazards and dependence on foreign crude oil common to petroleum-based products. The product is currently undergoing a program of testing being conducted by a leading independent third party testing facility that meets the rigorous testing procedures & guidelines established by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
Thus far, G-OIL has successfully completed Fiterability, Ball Bearing Rust, Sulfur, Calcium, Zinc and Phosphorus tests and the 10W-30 G-OIL's results are shown to be compared to published data for synthetic and crude oil based motor oils.
