  • Engine: Bio-Based Full Synthetic Oil - Biodegradable

    Interesting product....
    Made from plants, and trees...and animals.

    Perused their website, and did not see the vintage engine flat tappet cam issue mentioned.
    I sent in this inquiry:


    Concerning vintage automobile engines with flat tappet camshafts.
    The current solution is the additive ZDDP.
    Is this product in your engine oil products?
    If not, what is your solution to the flat tappet cam lobe wear issue?

    It's a start. I already recycle used oil. They can re-refine it .

      Not to be picky but isn't that how the stuff we pump out of the ground is made?

      In any case, it will be interesting to see their reply.

        All oil is bio based.

          Maybe I missed it Nowhere on the bottles or the web site do I see an API seal. I would want at least that before I dumped this into my engine. I am all for more renewable tech but sometimes you can tell the pioneers by the arrows in their backs.

              HMM...BIO-DEGRADABLE...So...will it come with a "Sell-by,"..."best if used by,"...or..."You better change by," warning date on the label???

              Just when does the "degrading" start?

              Once you are through using it in your engine...can you fertilize your lawn with it?

                More and more consumer products are being packaged with the insipid "I'M GREEN" BS on the label. That's OK I suppose, however, it's sad so many folks make it work due to their high gullibility index.

                  Yeah we should give up on trying to make the world a better place.

                    What a coincidence! I myself have been using biodegradable oil made from plants and animals my whole life! Feels good to be ahead of the curve for once.

                      During her career as a microbiologist - no, that is not a tiny scientist - my daughter genetically engineered microorganisms that had a taste for petroleum. Isn't that degrading?

                        Forget whether the oil is biodegradable or not, what about all the combustion by-products and heavy metals in the used oil? Won't go in my garden for certain
