    I dont see how it could be green, disposable , and meet the posted SM rating on the box. Its animal fat , yet they say it outperforms synthetics, yea , i smell a rat.

    Basically people want to do good and be rightious, im not saying that to be an ass, but the thing is it sets you up to be suckered and fast. I used to crack jokes of reselling toilet paper under the name eco-green-smart strips. Why? those words sell products. americans often dont care about fact , rather they buy perception and assume noone would lie since its illegal.

    I wouldnt touch that oil until more info was forthcoming from other sources.

    I used to work for Castrol. They made a hydraulic oil that could be dumped on the ground. It was canola oil based with some all weather and anti rust additives added to it. They even put green dye in it. The oil was made for heavy equipment used in the logging industry. This was about 15 years ago, so I'm sure the technology has improved.

    Someone had a virgin analysis done of the 5w-30 "racing" oil on bitog

    MSDS

    It may be more biodegradable out of the bottle than others, but I would think not after running it in your engine. It'll be full of wear metals and any other contaminants that happen to get in there. Just compare a virgin sample analysis to an oil change analysis and you can see what all is there.
