Is your car ready for cow oil?

  1. 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.

    Wonder if they ever tried using lard before butchering the cows? Correct me if I am wrong but wasn't lard used for quite a few things in the beginning of the last century? I would like to try some of this new oil to see how it holds up over the course of 3000-5000 miles.-Weeks
  7. Where to FIND IT plus they make Other Products also.
    Hell if I can find it local, I'm going to try some in my beater just for shits & grins. Then when I drain it I'll deep fry some chicken in it :eek: :rolleyes: ...joe

  10. I watched "Modern Marvels" on one of the educational cable channels do an hour about turkeys and towards the end they spent a bit on a process where all the waste parts of the bird after processing - beaks, feet, carcasses, basically anything they couldn't sell for food except the feathers - was turned into fuel oil. I can't remember if it became ethanol or a regular fuel now - but I'm sure you can do the same with cow parts, chicken parts, pig parts.. hell probably even human corpses, too. Screw burial, turn me into fuel and put me in the gas tank of my hot rod....

    Hmmm, if they can do that with cow fat, can they do it with human fat? If so, I'm sitting on a gold mine!!!

    Except it'll still have all the byproducts of gasoline in it from combustion vapor. Unless of course you're driving a bio diesel.

    Keep refrigerated after opening. Will the cans have a "use before" date on them?

    It will keep your car MOOving down the hiway. Instead of 10W 40 in the summer and 5W 30 in the winter, I'll run 2% in the summer and skim in the winter.

    Jonathan Goodwin has already done that in fact. He's the guy who does the biodiesel conversions. I took a tour of his operation last year and he was showing off some of his projects. He had a 6.2 diesel running off off human fat from a lyposuction clinic. Pretty wild.

    Cow oil could make your hotrod smell like a hamburger. Then fat chicks would follow you around town....
