The blurb reads like another formulation of Molyslip.

it reminds me of the same thing apart from no ptfe in it if that is what its called , just watched a video where it eats copper no idea if this is true .
now people used to say that redex was a snake oil but it has been proved to be a good additive once in a while , there are some trying this zx1 out on there cars but if i remember a turbo has some sort of copper bearing or am i thinking of some thing else so if the video is correct this stuff would be very bad for the turbo

I hope your experiment works out well ..... you don't want to go and mess up that lawnmower engine >:):grin2:



Are you tempted to do the 'molyslip test' ? ..... ie drain the oil after the additive has had time to bond and see how smoothly ahd how long the engine continues to run 'dry' :nerd::smile2::crying2:

No comment.
Not come across it.
I'm always wary of possible snake oils.
At best may do something.
Sometimes have little effect but do no harm
At worst, will cause issues.

Pays ya money, takes your choice.
My money stays firmly in my pocket unless it is something needed.
