STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Green Earth Technologies (Pink Sheets: GETG - News) announced today that they have passed the Japanese Automotive Standards Organization (JASO) FD tests as well as the global standard, ISO-L-EGD for their 2-Cycle G-OIL™. The JASO-FD/ISO-L-EGD are the toughest standards currently obtainable for two stroke oil and determines the highest rating of increased lubricity, initial torque, detergency, low exhaust smoke density and exhaust system blocking requirements. The Ultimate Biodegradable G-OIL is the only animal fat bio-based oil to achieve these standards while maintaining the highest biodegradability ranking (Ultimate) as determined by ASTM Standards (2.1 ASTM D-5864).

Oil listing a JASO FD/ISO-L-EGD rating is preferred for higher performance engines found in snowmobiles, dirt bikes and personal water craft. Obtaining JASO-FD/ISO-L-EGD also determines that Green Earth Technologies’ 2-Cycle G-OIL now meets or exceeds all OEM warranty requirements. G-OIL is the “green” solution made from American-grown base oils with a no smoke formula and has also achieved API service category TC for all 2-Cycle air-cooled outdoor engines. 2-Cycle G-OIL is available for purchase in a variety of sizes, including the 2.6 oz and 16 oz sizes at The Home Depot as well as other participating retailers.

“Passing the JASO-FD/ISO-L-EGD is a testament to the quality of our 2-Cycle G-OIL and shows the industry that it is possible to create environmentally friendly products without sacrificing performance.” said Dr. Mathew Zuckerman, President and COO of Green Earth Technologies. He added “It is truly exciting that G-OIL is the first animal fat bio-based oil to achieve the highest global industry standards.”

This announcement comes on the heels of Green Earth Technologies’ G-OIL™ Ultimate Biodegradable green motor oils passing all of the engine test criteria for The American Petroleum Institute (API) SM Certification, which will make it the first and only bio-based motor oil to receive such distinguished honors once approved. API'S SM rating is the highest rating for gasoline engine oil certification.
