Biodegradable motor oil
You know that famous quote about how laws are like sausages its better not to see them being made? My guess is that G-Oil (pictured) falls in the same category. The biodegradable oil is made with renewable animal fats, or, put more bluntly, waste cow fat from Oklahoma slaughterhouses.
But if you focus on the fact that the product is organic, has won a Popular Mechanics magazine editors choice award, and is good enough to be the official motor oil of the American Le Mans Series racing competition, you might be swayed. Our motto is save the Earth, sacrifice nothing, says Courtney Jacobs, spokeswoman for Stamford, Conn.-based Green Earth Technologies, G-Oils manufacturer.
