Yea, Yea, Yea, I know it might be a tad "OT" but who knows this could be one way to help reduce America's dependence on foreign oil. It gives a whole new meaning to "Moo Juice" Cow Oil The company Green Earth Technologies announced today it has been granted the American Petroleum Institute (API) symbol for its SAE 5W-30 weight of its new motor oil made from . . .cows! The company will roll out G-OIL 5W-30 in bulk and quart size bottles in the next few months. Unlike traditional petrochemical-based motor oils from leading manufacturers, Green Earth Technologies' G-OIL is made from rendered cow fat. These saturated fats, whose molecular single-bond carbon chains are similar to common petroleum oils, have no harsh effects on the environment. When mixed with the product G-DISPOSOIL, used G-OIL is almost instantly broken down into smaller molecules that are food for microorganisms in soil, so the oil can be poured onto the ground with no harmful effects. The company says that using cow fat for motor oil reduces America's dependence on foreign oil. "It takes three barrels of crude oil to make one barrel of motor oil, but it only takes one barrel of animal fat to produce one barrel of G-OIL," the company said in a press release. The two-cycle version of the oil, used for lawnmowers and other small engines, has been on the market since July and is available at Home Depot.
