Badnews, where have you been? I can't speak for the others, but I've missed you. Have you come to stir the pot a little? What ever you are going to post I know its going to be good and controversial. Moly is a milkmaid right? [I dont know] [Welcome!] [Happy] [Happy] [Cheers!] [Big Grin]

Well Mobil 1 already has Moly. And adding an EP when a AW willdo isn't really good for the oil or the equipment. Also the Type of moly is important. Besides Mobil 1 already has moly and when you look at the UOA's the Moly is about the same as the Virgin analysis which shows it generally is not used. I'm sure Mobil 1 (and I'm not a flag waiving user) probably added an optimal amount. Just an opinion though. [Smile]

Like Al said, there's more to an oil than the sum of its parts which show up in a typical UOA/VOA. That's why some additives backfire. I'm thinking of one guy who showed up here after adding "Tufoil" to his oil. His analysis didn't look so hot. [Thumbs Down!] Depending on the other additives, there's an optimal amount of moly/boron/zinc/phosphorous/calcium, etc ... and the type/fprm of each is critical. Yes, at least some molydisulphide would end up getting filtered out. --- Bror Jace
