Greenies Can't Beef About This Oil
You may not be able to put a tiger in your tank any more, but you can put a cow in your crankcase. Gizmag reports that Green Earth Technologies has introduced G-OIL, a biodegradable motor oil made from beef tallow. The oil will hit the U.S. market next year in a variety of viscosities and performance levels. To jettison your G-OIL, you mix it with G-DISPOSOIL, which breaks the goop down into biodegradable particles. Manufacturing is just as efficient; the company claims they can turn one barrel of animal fat into one barrel of motor oil. Plastic surgeons take note.
