I would use the 107 Moly Bond x-200 40 wt. in the gallons. Comes 6 to a case. I think you would be very happy with it. David 107 Moly Bond X200

quote:Just so I understand this correctly... Wouldn't it really need about 8-10 times the 150 ppm of moly in a 1 pint bottle to get a moly number of 120-150 ppm after being "diluted" by 4-5 qts. of oil?
Originally posted by MolaKule: I am hoping this was a fluke and that there really is 150 ppm in 500 mL of #132, since I am one of those who use this product extensively. As I stated before, my calculations showed there should be 125-150 ppm, but the actual analysis showed less than that.
quote:Was that a use oil sample that you sent? If so how many miles? If it was then I suppect the moly had been plating up. And depending on the type oil you used, it may have had to work harder. Remember that is NOT the only friction release additive schaeffer uses in thier oils. (hit penetro, that works as well as the moly).That's why our oils don't drop in moly that fast. One more thing I like to say is that I don't really like putting other additives in oils, you and I are NOT blenders. Never Liked the idea. so as you might can tell, I don't push or try to sell the stuff, except in special needs. How many times have you used 132 in that engine?

I am hoping this was a fluke and that there really is 150 ppm in 500 mL of #132, since I am one of those who use this product extensively. As I stated before, my calculations showed there should be 125-150 ppm, but the actual analysis showed less than that.
quote:I'm afraid you're wrong MolaKule, You're comparing apples and oranges. When you analyze the 132, you are measuring a small amount, and every small amount will have the same 150 ppm of moly. The total container will have much more as a total. When you measure the oil with the diluted 132 in it, you are also measuring a small amount. Sure, if you measured ALL your oil, the total moly concentration will be 150 ppm more, but it is less in a smaller sample. The small sample can't have the same moly conc. as the whole bottle of 132. Here's another way to look at it. On a "contact patch" of given size in the engine, it is seeing only the amount of moly that is in that contact patch, the diluted conc., not the total amount in ALL the oil. OK?
Originally posted by MolaKule: The answer is no. Let's assume there is no moly in the virgin oil of say 4.8 L. If I place 500 mL of a carrier oil that contains 150 ppm of Moly, then the resulting oil should have its Moly content "raised" by 150 ppm. In other words, the concentration of Moly in the 500 mL should disperse in the host oil to increase its content of Moly by 150 ppm.
