G-Oil was introduced at the SEMA show last week. G-Oil is a green oil that is completely petroleum free, it’s made from “American grown base oils” which seems to be rendered beef tallow in this case. The American Petroleum Institute should be issuing certification within a month and it’s available for all automotive applications from ordinary engines to high performance, turbocharged and diesel engines. There is no motorcycle oil available yet but I would guess, with the right additives, that might be coming in the future.
One really interesting thing about G-Oil is the disposal technique, you add another of their products, Disposoil, and it breaks the G-Oil down into a biodegradeable material that can be consumed by the organisms naturally found in the soil. That is very cool technology.
They have a whole series of green products besides the oil including a lot of cleaners, the kind most of us have around the garage. This is the kind of product I hope takes off and becomes very successful. Check it out.
