Here is testament to Marvel Mystery Oil I thought I would share, for both the supporters and haters of MMO on this forum: In the 1960s and 1970s, my grandfather was an 18 wheeler owner/operator, often driving cross country. He routinely got 1 million +! miles between rebuilds simply by always using 20% MMO and 80% engine oil. Of course this included regular recommended oil and filter changes, and engine tune ups. Keep in mind that this was during a time of greatly inferior oil base stock and detergent quality. When the engines were finally gone through they were amazingly clean, stuff of legend among mechanics in the area. Discuss. gladiator

yeah that's all I need is some stickers it has nothing in it that does anything period.It may clean the oil possibly but I would use 10 different things before I wasted my time on mmo.What kills me is the ones that think adding it to the gas does anything lol.They are the reason lucas is still in business.Tired of seeing threads about a worthless product every day or two.The MSDS confirms its nothing that does a [censored] thing .............

Since you are such a big fan, here is where you write to get your MMO Decals. Make sure to send a self addressed/stamped envelope: Marvel Oil Company Attn: MMO Decals 625 Willowbrook Centre Parkway Willowbrook, IL 60527 By the way, MMO is not an octane booster. It is an engine/gas cleaner with a 5W oil.

yeah go ahead, run 20% kerosene in your engine and tell me how that works out. MMO is not kerosene.

Can you objectively state why MMO is for fools? And I'll ask again: Do you actually know what MMO contains? One more question: Have you, or anyone you know ever used MMO? I think you hate it but don't understand why you hate it. Coffee2

There are quite a few people on BITOG who use MMO regularly in their oil and/or gas. And as far as the MSDS showing that it doesn't have anything that does anything, dermapaint has posted the following quite a few times (I don't know if it is originally his, but he is the one who posts it most often):

[Naphthenic oils have more solvency and are more polar (they are attracted to metal more), but oxidize faster. 29% Mineral Spirits - Cleans Varnish very well. General cleaner. Also acts as an antioxidant. 38 parts per million (ppm) Boron - AW/EP agent, friction reducer, antioxidant 900 ppm Phosporous - AW/EP agent 1/2% 1, 2 ortho-Dichlorobenzene - EP agent as it interacts with Iron to form an Iron chloride barrier under any ZDDP or other AW additives. Also very good cleaner/solvent, and friction reducer 1/4% 1, 4 para-Dichlorobenzene - EP agent as it interacts with Iron to form an Iron chloride barrier under any ZDDP or other AW additives. Also very good cleaner/solvent, and friction reducer Oil of wintergreen - for the scent - Not just for the cent, is also a cleaner. may aid lubricity. Red Dye - for the color - well this one just colors the stuff

That's a lot of miles, especially for a truck from that time period. Good stuff! NMBurb02-I found the MMO contents somewhere and have been posting them for quite some time.

The first time I actually saw MMO do something was about 10 years ago in the marina where I had my boat. The guy behind me at the dock was complaining about a tick he had in the motor.Finally someone told him to try MMO. So He dumped a 16 oz can in the oil of his 4 cyl motor. It was ticking as he let it idle. After about a half hr, the ticking stopped. He took it for a ride and said it was quiet the whole time. He changed the oil shortly afterwards and the ticking never came back. Apparently, using good oil is not a guarantee you won't develop problems. But a little extra cleaning ability won't hurt either.,,

It CAN help to clean an engine. Doesn't mean it WILL clean YOUR engine but it has been shown to me here on this website that it can clean up a dirty engine. I use it from time to time just before an oil change. If I remember to do so. No need to set your da__ed hair on fire about it... If you want to use a good oil & add nothing, I can't fault you. If you would like to try a bit of MMO from time to time, I think that it may be not be as useful as it was thirty or forty years ago (commonly used in the War's IC engines) but I can't fault you, either. Go in peace. John.
