Keep ya posted, but so far, it is extremely promising. You got to read their site. The're nice people and answer questions. I'm busting their buts about a push on the DuraJokes. Hey! What about us? LOL

Follow up
I have to say the truck is stronger, quieter, and the EGT's while driving are at least 50* less. All for less than 1/2 an ounce of this stuff. For you performance guys, this stuff can give you an edge. It runs real strong now. Now we'll see how it does on the MPG. If the EGT's are down, that means I'm running cleaner and getting full combustion.

It certainly works well in diesel.  Putting it in my wife's 200 today.  If she gets 22 from 21, the benefit offsets the cost.  1ML treats 13 gallons.  the 4Z bottle will treat 336 gallons!  it's $25 US

It's interesting.  Their oil additive is just hBN.  I've got pounds of the 70 nano meter stuff sitting around.  Used it when I was in to boom stick competitions.  A little goes a long way.  Just never wanted to be the guiniea pig for an engine.  Glad they had the cajones to do it.

Would you mind elabortating?
What prevents the oil filters from removing it?

I's 70 nanometers.  I think oil filters are on the several micron level.    be like rolling a golf ball down a sewer.  Anyway. the hBN really works well but its film is built by impact.  Ie it onlt sticks to metal and forms a layer when it's been schmacked.  When I tumbled bullets in it they cam out so slick you could barely hang on to em.   

I did more reading on it and about 760-800 hours after being suspended in oils it falls out and settles.  So that said if you park your ride for a month the stuff is going to settle out. 

Here's one small study;

Interesting.  They don't say that.  I noticed the oil is real slippery though.  This is a liquid or a powder?

Yeah I know it doesn't say that in the paper.  It's something I came to accept from the firearms world that the coating must be impact plated.   I guess in that world impact plating makes sense since it's not in colloidal suspension.

It's a powder.

Well the impact/mechanical plating is really needed since you can't pour the powder over the top of a bullet and expect it to stay put during the whole firing sequence.  You basically tumble the parts you're trying to get the stuff to stick to with a bunch of harder material,  i.e. steel shot, and over  the course of hours the material is bonded to the surface.

For the colloidal suspension, take a given amount of your oil, a certain portion of the hBN, take out your wifes hand blender and whip it all together so there's no clumps.
