Save time, money, oil—and the environment—with Valhalla-based SOMS Technologies’ microGreen oil filters, which the company says allow vehicles to go up to 30,000 miles—eight times the standard interval—between oil changes. “The technology has been in development for nine years,” says SOMS Technologies CEO Miles Flamenbaum. “The filter you have in your car now is pretty much the same ones used since the early seventies.” The microGreen filters need no special installation.
Mount Pleasant (including Pleasantville) and New York State all have switched to microGreen filters for government vehicles. So, too, has Pace University, the Tarrytown School District, Robison Oil, and countless taxi and limousine companies. “In addition, we are working with five of the top fifteen largest commercial fleets in the U.S.,” says Flamenbaum. He adds that even if just “every vehicle in the U.S. were to convert to the microGreen filter, we could reduce annual motor-oil use by four-hundred-twenty million gallons.”
You can purchase a filter for your car online (microgreenfilter.com). With microGreen filters, you can expect, the company says, a 65-percent reduction in oil maintenance costs, a 70-percent reduction in oil use, a 50-percent reduction in filter use, and the potential for up to a 5-percent improvement in fuel economy.
