Calgary, Alberta, Canada – May 12, 2008 – Genoil Inc. (TSX.V: GNO; OTCBB: GNOLF.OB) announces that it plans to enter into a Cdn. $5,000,000 funding agreement (the “New Funding Agreement”) with David K. Lifschultz, the Corporation’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, which shall replace a $1,000,000 funding agreement (the “Old Funding Agreement”) previously entered into with Mr. Lifschultz.

 
Pursuant to the terms of the proposed New Funding Agreement, Mr. Lifschultz has agreed to make available to the Corporation up to Cdn. $5,000,000 which amount may be drawn at any time within one year from the date of the execution of the New Funding Agreement, upon demand by the Corporation provided that such amounts have received pre-approval by Mr. Lifschultz. Any such amounts drawn pursuant to the New Funding Agreement shall bear interest at a rate of 12% per annum and shall become due and payable on the date that is one year from the date of the New Funding Agreement. Any amount that has been drawn by the Corporation pursuant to the Old Funding Agreement shall be deemed to have been drawn by the Corporation pursuant to the New Funding Agreement.
 
In consideration for entering into the New Funding Agreement, the Corporation has agreed to issue to Mr. Lifschultz 1,200,000 common share purchase warrants of the Corporation (the “Warrants”). Each Warrant is exercisable for one common share of the Corporation per share at any time within one year from its date of issue, at an exercise price equal to the closing price of the Corporation’s shares on the day prior to the date of execution of the New Funding Agreement. Any amounts drawn pursuant to the New Funding Agreement will be used for the payment of general expenses.  The funds made available under the Funding Agreement are intended to provide short term bridge financing and are expected to provide a significant benefit to the Corporation’s current operations.
