Part of the pilot involves TruGreen participating in a microGreen Fleet Adoption Programme sponsored by SOMS Technologies LLC which allows eligible fleets to use the oil filter and receive free oil analysis to monitor the performance of the filter.

The microGreen oil filter enables cars to run for up to 30,000 miles without needing an oil change and the oil stays cleaner for longer because there are two filters in one spin-on canister.

Steve Donly, president od TruGreen said: “The SOMS pilot program is part of our commitment to developing responsible lawn care practices.The significant reduction in oil use is just one example of our passionate pursuit of sustainable business practices.”

Using the microGreen oil filter should save the fleet 65% on maintenance costs and reduce oil consumption by 70% and oil filters by 50%.
