    Polyisobutylene in 2 stroke oil

    PIB has a flash point of double typical Diesel fuel and would't provide and doesn;t lubricate very well on its own. Blending it with fuel in a vehicle application would certainly raise cylinder and exhaust temps do to the fact is still burning when the exhaust valve opens. Hence manufactures...

    2T oil in Diesel to improve lubricity

    Running used motor oil with in diesel is terrible idea. No profit generating company would ever conceive the notion. Diesel engine use high pressure in the injection system to maintain efficiency and risking clogging these with contaminants and metal particles is bad idea. Also the HFRR...

    Viral Synthetic 2 Stroke

    Its not crazy technology. I'm guessing they use a lot of PIB (polyisobutylene) which is used by every manufacture at different doses. PIB flashes at that temp 150-190deg. PIB is what makes oils smokeless and burn clean but it does come with some consequences. Its anti scuffing but too much will...

    Lubegard Bio-tech additive = more noise

    petroleum companies go to great lengths to remove wax substances from their base stocks. You can find plenty of those in a group one.

    Amsoil Fuel Additives: Gas and Diesel

    Why not use premium or mid grade gas? Octane boosters are extremely toxic and corrosive to metals. Hence why the EPA doesn't approve them for road use. Hence why most of them say "for off road use only" kind of a shady way around that. Octane boosters also corrode spark plugs tips. Just saying

    Unleaded in a car that`s specd for premium.

    I actually have 350Z finding I was getting hugely inconsistent performance. My hypothesis is premium fuel sits way too long from the very low demand and is getting contaminated with water or oxidizing. I'm an engine designer and at the point where I'm going to buy an octane meter. Ridicules...

    seafoam, kreen etc.

    I fully support the use of crank case cleaning once and a while. Oil oxidizes and separates out into low and heavy viscosity. The heavy viscosity (rogue molecules) become polar in nature. Sticky gooey resins. They bond with soot and collect in tight engine spaces. I'm not exactly sure of the...

    Were going back to Regular Diesel at work

    Bio-diesel although a renewable sourced fuel is actually a very dirty fuel from the the equipment perspective. It's good idea not yet really ready for the commercial world. A ton of companies in Canada dumped the use of it this year. You would hard pressed to find a gas station selling it...
