Moly Extreme Pressure Oil Treatment Testing

 

          There are a number of oil treatments on the market that are confused with the ENGINE TREATMENT we include in our system.  There are basically four types:

 

  1. Teflon (MTFE) in oil.
  2. Moly (MoS2) in oil.
  3. Halogen (Cl, F) based treatment.
  4. The XCEL PLUS / Lubrilon permanent engine treatment.

 

          Of the four listed above only number four is a permanent one time only engine treatment.  The others are oil additives that have to be regularly added.  That does not mean that they are no good.  I am still looking for ways to improve the Hydrogen Boost system so I still test other products.  I had never before tested a Moly treatment and have heard many customers rave about it so I decided to submit one to a scientific test.  I enquired around and found the highest regarded brand was not on most shelves, which would be nice for me if it tested out positive, because if I decided to market it I wouldn’t be competing with the local shelves.  I had high hopes for the product but let’s see what happens.

 

          I tested on my Saturn SL1 that has the Hydrogen Boost system installed on it, but I shut off the system as much as I could so it would not interfere with the test of the product alone.  I ordered two treatments of Schaeffer brand Moly E.P. Oil Treatment.  I re-established a baseline mileage figure with the stock vehicle by doing numerous round trip test runs at 70 mph on Interstate 87, using the Scangauge readout as calculator for mileage.  Baseline mileage ranged from 37.7 mpg to 38.8 mpg, with an average of 38.2 mpg on the baseline tests.

 

          Before applying the treatment I recorded the following parameters at idle with the engine completely warmed up:

 

RPM 760  This is the engines idle speed in revolutions per minute.

MAP 3.9  This is the manifold absolute pressure in pounds per square inch. 

GPH 0.2  This is the fuel flow in gallons per hour.

 

          After applying the oil treatment and running the car a hundred miles I began mileage testing again.  Actually I saw the mpg readings during the run-in period but did not expect an increase until the treatment was “complete.”  On subsequent round trip road tests on the same road I recorded very similar mpg readings, actually slightly less than the baseline.  37.9, 37.3, 38.2, 37.7, etc.

 

          After each road test I would also record the engine parameters as before:

 

RPM 760

MAP 3.9-4.2

GPH 0.2 sometimes flashing to 0.3

 

Observations

 

          I truly expected to see an increase in mileage and a decrease in GPH and/or MAP readings given the same RPM at idle.  I didn’t expect the GPH reading to be any help because it is not calculated to enough significant figures to be accurate.  For example the GPH may have been really around 0.24 and jumping to 0.26 on occasion which gave an indicated reading of 0.3 GPH.  The MAP sensor reading is much more accurate and since the GPH is actually calculate based on MAP and RPM, I consider the MAP reading a much better indicator of fuel flow.  Regardless, there was no appreciable difference in fuel flow indications at idle with and without the treatment.  Average MPG was very slightly lower with the treatment but once again the difference was insignificant, the largest difference being only 1.3% of the baseline figure.

 

          One thing worth noting here is that this Saturn SL1 had already been treated with the permanent engine treatment XCEL PLUS/Lubrilon.  If the engine treatment did the job of smoothing out the internal engine metal surfaces as advertised, then the Moly oil treatment would not have a chance to do much to benefit the engine.  Since I received two bottles of Moly E.P Oil Treatment, I will likely test again on a vehicle that has never had a permanent engine treatment.  I have a couple choices for vehicles for this.  My wife’s Chrysler Pacifica is available but is not driven much.  I am receiving a 2002 Toyota Prius soon that I plan on converting to a plug-in Hybrid but I may get a chance to test the Moly treatment there first.  I will likely do the test at highway cruise speeds to prevent the hybrid technology from interfering with accurate results.

 

Conclusions

 

          The Moly treatment did not cause a decrease in mileage like the Bio-Performance pill I tested last summer, but I saw no increase in mileage with the treatment applied to the Saturn which had already been given a permanent engine treatment included in the Hydrogen Boost system.  I conclude at this point that the EXEL PLUS/Lubrilon permanent engine treatment done 60,000 mile before is still doing the in place and preventing any further improvement caused by Moly.
