G-OIL went through Honest-1's stringent performance tests and will be rolled out to all stores by mid-January.

G-OIL is the world's lowest petroleum, "eco-friendly," ultimate biodegradable motor oil priced comparatively to synthetics and similarly performing products. Unlike traditional petrochemical-based motor oils from leading manufacturers, Green Earth Technologies' G-OIL is made with American-grown renewable animal fats. These saturated fats, whose molecular single-bond carbon chains are similar to common petroleum oils, have no harsh effects on the environment, and drastically cut our dependence on foreign oil.
