The newly formed Green Lubrication Solutions (GLS) is joining the nation's growing number of companies offering products or services that are formulated for minimal impact on the environment. Officially formed in December 2007, the company is the exclusive western U.S. distributor of a unique line of lubrication and engine enhancement products (MotorSilk and LubriSilk) that provide significant cost savings, and an easy to implement option for those looking to "go green" and use less oil.

The products offered by Green Lubrication Solutions treat farm vehicles, equipment and related machinery with a patented lubrication technology invented at the U.S. Department of Energy labs (originally formulated as an extreme conditions lubricant suitable for the rigors of the NASA space program), which significantly increases energy efficiency in engines, reduces emissions, saves gas and lubrication oil use, and can even be used to obtain carbon credits. More importantly, the products are fully biodegradable and non-toxic. Unlike typical oil additives and lubricants, the GLS products require only one treatment to provide long-term engine benefits. In short, MotorSilk is a biodegradable lubricant that helps all types of engines last longer and run more efficiently.

Company officials expect that farmers and farm companies nationwide will quickly adopt this product line. "It's a no-brainer for anyone as impacted by the performance of their machinery as much as farmers; they save money on gas and maintenance and show an example to other farmers by cutting back on their oil consumption," said Randy Hufford, GLS President. "We are very excited to be representing this product, because it really can make a big difference in reducing our use of fossil fuels and saving money during harsh economic times. We feel it's just a matter of time before every farm in America will make this a standard part of their vehicle and equipment maintenance, because of the remarkable engine benefits."

The product bonds to engine metal surfaces to greatly decrease friction, increase power and gas mileage, and cut down on wear, which all combine into long-term maintenance cost savings. For farms with multiple vehicles, the long-term aggregate savings can be enormous.
