Yup. Why would anyone even post a link to that garbage and ask about it, especially since it's been discussed several times before, such as here and here .

I hereby proclaim that henceforth I will do things in a "dramtic" fashion!

Has anyone tested this stuff or used it? Or does everyone just know that it's junk? Is this something that everyone just automatically knows? Just asking. I've never used it and was just wondering. I understand that their claims to special chemistry look a little outdated but how does this stuff work in the real world?

Very fair questions. My 2 cents... After seeing many vehicles including some of my own go to 200-300k miles with zero oil issues, why do we need an additive?

LOL... Maybe regrow hair as well... If it actually worked, every car mfgr & oil company would have been fighting for the rights to market the stuff... The increased MPG alone would be monumental...

TBN booster for those that extend oil changes. Their oil is a high TBN groupIII synth. Automakers won't pay until they have to.. It took 30 years for synthetic to be tolerable as mainstream. I am wondering how that California mandated 10k oil will work out.

It doesn't take much to look at the site and know that the outlandish claims are nonsense. If they actually were credible and successful, then they'd have enough money to hire a web design firm for their site, rather than using something that looks like it was done by a 12 year old using an old version of Microsoft FrontPage.

So I take it that there are certain things about the real world performance of certain oils that some members here know without going to all the trouble of testing. Is this a theme that pops up every now and then?
