5w_30_1LONG ISLAND CITY, NY – London Towncars of New York is switching its fleet of luxury sedans, SUVs, and executive vans to biodegradable G-Oil™ made from beef tallow. It is the first limousine company in the U.S. to use the new 5W30 G-Oil™.

Steve Spencer, president of London Towncars said, “corporations considering our company for assignments will ask about our green initiatives. It is important for them to reassure their customers that they are pursuing practices for a greener environment.” London Towncars, founded in 1959, has a fleet of 60 vehicles in the New York City and Tri-state region.

London Towncars has initiated additional environmental initiatives including the purchase of hybrid vehicles such as the hybrid Ford Fusion with a six inch stretched rear compartment and a Mercedes F-Class hybrid. The company has achieved energy efficiency savings in lighting with a switch from fluorescent bulbs to CFL bulbs at headquarters. As Spencer continued “we will make additional changes to conserve gas and other finite resources used by our company.”

G-Oil™ is manufactured by Green Earth Technologies Inc.™(GETG) and bulk distribution is available through Green Planet Products. GETG products are 100% biodegradable and carry a hazmat rating of zero; the oils biodegrade within 28 days and is ASTM Certified Ultimate Biodegradable.

Recently, Schenectady County of New York completed a 12 month study of the G-Oil™ and have converted their fleet of police cruisers to the use of the biodegradable oil.

Lee Bowden, president of Green Planet Products heralded the move by the company. “ London Towncars is leading the way for other chauffeured limousine companies to adopt new technology to preserve our environment and reduce our dependence fossil fuels.”
