Proprietary & Patented Technology Makes Possible the 45% - 75% Reduction in Green House Gas Emissions Associated with Ethanol Fuels

A "Fluid Solution" to Make All 2-Cycle Engines Flex Fuel without Requiring Modifications of Hardware for the Ignition, Fuel or Exhaust Systems 

STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Green Earth Technologies [Pink Sheets: GETG] today announced that its ethanol edition of G-OIL 2-Cycle Engine Oil is specifically designed for ethanol fuels to help meet the new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Surf & Turf standards for non-road engines, equipment and vehicles, without requiring any modifications or additional hardware to the engines.

On September 4, 2008, the EPA announced new, stricter emissions standards for spark-ignition non-road engines rated below 25 horsepower used in household and commercial applications. This includes outdoor power equipment and personal watercraft and nearly half of these products are powered by 2-cycle engines. The standards will be in place by 2010 for land and 2011 for sea and will require manufacturers of this equipment to significantly reduce harmful emissions.

Our answer is fluids, instead of costly mechanical modifications to equipment, as a first step towards meeting these new EPA standards, said Jeff Marshall, CEO of Green Earth Technologies. And, our answer is available now as consumers and manufacturers alike can immediately use E85 and other ethanol fuels to achieve the greater reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

G-OIL is already environmentally friendly, but 2-cycle engine fuel is 50 parts gasoline and the oil is only one part. Therefore, in order to get a better exhaust emission, the fuel itself must be made more environmentally friendly and ethanol based fuels have been shown in automobiles to reduce green house gas emissions by 45% to 70%. The environment safe G-OIL dissolves in ethanol fuel whereas all other commercially available synthetic or crude base oils do not. A proprietary & patent pending ingredient is then added to the (ethanol edition) G-OIL that lengthens the burn rate so that no changes need to be made in the standard 2-cycle engines ignition and carburetion system, burning ethanol fuels up to E85 just like it was burning gasoline, only with lower emissions.

G-OIL 2-Cycle Green Engine Oil is currently available at retail stores and the Internet in a variety of sizes, with the new ethanol edition being ready to ship next month.
