Default "green" oil

Another thread prompted me to do some searching, and I stumbled across this oil made by Green Earth Technologies. Apparently it is made with animal fat or something, meets all standards for 2-cycle oil, has better emissions, is nontoxic, yadda yadda yadda.

Anybody ever use this stuff?

Default Re: "green" oil

Sounds like it could work and it uses at least one of the standards that I have seen before (API TC)...

The only slight issue I have is how it would cope with something that isnt a commercial engine... my Tanaka runs at something like 9.2:1 compression which is a world of difference to the 6.5/7:1 of the HT/CH engines.

It'd be good to get some and do a review of it. You can bet it wont be cheap though - any company with the word 'green' anywhere in their literature will gouge you for the priveledge
