Got a tech sheet on this new anti-friction additive. Has anyone used or tried it?
I have. I also am currently runnig that oil in my engine. Doesn't have any negative effect but I can't really say that I noticed a difference. Back in germany i ran this Additive all the time in my small 998ccm engine and that ran more efficient (better mpg). That engine also ran at 6500k a lot. Again,I haven't really noticed a big different in my 360cui. I do recall it ran a tad smoother when i first put it in,so maybe i have just gotten used to it!
There is another product called "ceratec".Also made by liquid moly. Used that in a v6 hyundai before and it seemed to have increased efficiency and the engine ran smoother.
What is the ppm level of moly in the product? Just curious as that's more important than just that moly is in it. Some current motor oils have about 60ppm of moly in them already, but not ALL oils have it. Might take a while for the moly to embed into the bearing surfaces for best results?
One other consideration is how big the moly particles are. Don't want them to be big enough that the oil filter filters them out!
Just some thoughts,
I do not know the ppm. But i do know that its visible gray. It's very small particles that will go through the oilfilter. Liquid Moly says something about effects take place after 100miles or so!?
The problem with the additives that contain Moly is that there's so little of if in the bottles they sell you.
You'd be better off buying it in bulk and using your own formula. Or even buying some h-BN and emulsifying it in oil before adding it to the crank case. Just wear respiration until it's wet, no need to pick up Pneumoconiosis for no reason.
What about in your Jeep? I figure that vehicle isn't so efficient and any improvements should be noticeable with MPGs.
Back in the later '70s, one of our vendors got a distributorship for Long Moly Motor Oil. It was made in Louisiana. Something like 10% concentration. It hit the market just after the Teflon additives were taken off the market, back then. He ended up giving it away and using it in his own vehicles. The literature hyped it a good bit, but he had no "Eureka!" comments about how good it was in his vehicles. Be that as it may.
I've got a virgin quart of Arco Graphite motor oil. I also have an opened quart with remnants of the oil in it. Totally black! Soaks into my fingerprints, too! YUK! Hard to get out!
