STAMFORD, Conn., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Green Earth Technologies (Pink Sheets: GETG - News) announced today that their G-OIL(TM) G-1 Racing Oil has completed extensive trials at Daytona International Raceway in Florida to establish the performance of their new motor oil products. Kinetic Motorsports and Kinetic Sunbelt Engines performed on-track race tests in their BMW M3 GS car (a race built version of a standard street-going BMW M3) to establish the oil's operating parameters, and have concluded that G-OIL outperformed all the synthetic oils that they currently use. G-OIL will now be used in all Kinetic race cars for the upcoming Grand-Am Koni Sports Car Challenge later this month at the world famous NASCAR circuit in Daytona Florida.
Jim Thompson, Head of Kinetic Sunbelt Engines said, "During extensive testing of G-Oil in our race engines at Daytona, we have concluded that the oil not only possesses the basic characteristics that we demand in an engine oil, but it in fact outperformed all synthetic oils that we currently use. The durability and heat transfer capabilities of the oil were impressive with improvements in the range of 5-10% seen on the track. This, coupled with the reduced friction, created less wear and tear on the engine components. These characteristics held together exceptionally well during our rigorous testing on the track and translated to greater horsepower, torque and better fuel economy. We are very excited about these tests and look forward to beating out the competition while protecting the environment."
"Consumers can now buy G-OIL(TM) with the confidence that you don't have to sacrifice performance by buying green oil, as our racing oil is basically the same as G-OIL currently available at retail," said Mathew Zuckerman, Ph.D., President and COO of Green Earth Technologies. "This is a major milestone for Green Earth Technologies and the 'green' auto industry, proving the success of our bio based G-OIL under the most severe racing conditions."
The track testing reinforced the recent rigorous dyno testing that was performed by world renowned Roush Yates Engines in North Carolina. Roush Yates Engines are responsible for building and racing their own NASCAR entered cars along with supplying engines for all Ford powered Daytona Prototype cars in the Grand-Am Rolex Road Racing Series.
What makes G-OIL so unique is a proprietary ingredient and a patent pending system that supports the ingredient's performance. The ingredient is called "Nano Geodesic Bearings", aka "NGB." These NGB's are tiny spherical shaped particles that are comparable in size to the molecules that make-up the base material of Bio based oil. These particles are postulated to spin at almost unimaginable high speed to support adjacent oil molecules to squeeze more precious horsepower out of the engine: Truly nano-sized ball bearings.
G-OIL is the world's "eco-friendly," ultimate biodegradable motor oil. Unlike traditional petrochemical-based motor oils from leading manufacturers, Green Earth Technologies' G-OIL is made with renewable animal fats. These saturated fats have no harsh effects on the environment. G-OIL G-1 Racing Oil will soon be available to professional and amateur racing enthusiasts alike at a variety of outlets including the http://www.getg.com/ .
