GREEN TESTING GROUND: Red Oak Transportation of White Plains, N.Y., says it will be using 3,696 less quarts of oil and 288 less oil filters per year because it started using micoGreen filters. This will reduce maintenance expenses 56% this year, according to coverage in Aftermarket Business. Red Oak chose microGreen convinced it was worth the return on investment. "With many green products, there is a high capital cost that takes years to recover and we were pleasantly surprised to learn this was not the case with the microGreen filter," said Andy Stoppelmann, CEO of Red Oak Transportation. There are many green fleet products being marketed these days, and it's not easy to make purchase decisions tied into your green program and cost cutting reality. The great thing about fleet managers is they're putting lots of mileage onto a small, medium, or large number of vehicles. They're testing them out and learning what works and what doesn't. So, spread the word on what is/isn't working for you, and keep us informed, too.  -- J.L.
