Originally posted by MolaKule: The synthetic esters in Redline are polar, meaning they attract themselves to metal surfaces. Synthetic esters such as POE's are naturally cleaning chemicals. For Redline, the formulated oils do not need to have as much detergent/dispersant additives since the base oil esters do their share of cleaning. Now the natural esters in Auto-Rx have a greater affinity for carbon and sludge particles than do the esters in Redline.
We don't have any regular RL users with multiple UOA's for good trend analysis which is a pity.
quote:Wow, thats impressive especially considering how much D1 can clean. I am putting RL in tonight. I bought 5qts locally. Thanks guys.
Buster in my Outback Redline 5W30 became dirty far quicker than I expected and that was after an RX clean and using Delvac 1 a high detergant/dispersant oil.
