Interesting concept on the Green Earth cow oil. Just think, when you're finished with it in your car's crankcase you can drain it out - add some methanol and sodium hydroxide - and convert it into diesel fuel and glycerine fractions. Run the diesel in your VW Rabbit and use the glycerine to keep your hands soft. That's about as green as it gets. Not to mention your exhaust would smell like a perpetual Burger King at all times.

Of course, they need to put some ZDDP in it (in which case it would no longer be "green") to protect our rockers and cams, and I wonder how well it will stand up to red-hot turbo shafts and coking? It sounds like you can find it at Ace and Home Depot, so who wants to be the first to test it out in a 930?
