STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Green Earth Technologies (Pink Sheets: GETG - News), a leading manufacturer and marketer of green consumer goods, announced today that their G-OIL™ will be packaged with all Ryobi Outdoor Gas Powered Equipment beginning in 2009. This partnership comes on the heels of two big announcements for G-OIL, both for the 2-Cycle Engine Oil and the 4-Cycle Motor Oil. 2-Cycle G-OIL Green Engine Oil recently passed the Japanese Automotive Standards Organization (JASO) FD tests, as well as the global standard, ISO-L-EGD. G-OIL 4-Cycle 10W-30 met the API – SM standards, becoming the first outdoor 4-Cycle 10W-30 engine oil to be available at retail with API’s highest ranking.
In addition to including a 2.6 oz bottle of G-OIL in all factory packed gas powered equipment, TTI, the manufacturer of Ryobi Outdoor Power Equipment, will distribute G-OIL to all retailers stocking the Ryobi brand. TTI thoroughly tested G-OIL and determined that the oil passed all of their performance requirements. The no smoke formula will be healthier to use for consumers and the environment.
Regarding the announcement, Lee Sowell, President of TTI Outdoor Power Equipment said, “Not only does G-OIL satisfy the warranty requirements of all outdoor gas powered equipment, but it over achieved our expectations to the point that we prefer to include a 2.6 oz bottle of G-OIL with every purchase of Ryobi next year.”
“Ryobi Outdoor Power Equipment has an exceptional reputation in the power tool industry and we are very proud that they have selected G-OIL as their companion oil brand for 2009,” said Dr. Mat Zuckerman, President of Green Earth Technologies.
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. The 4-Cycle G-OIL is the only animal fat bio-based oil to pass the test criteria for API-SM standards while maintaining the highest biodegradability ranking (Ultimate) as determined by ASTM Standards (2.1 ASTM D-5864). G-OIL is available for purchase in a variety of sizes, including the 2.6 oz and 16 oz sizes.
