The Facts About Aftermarket Oil Additives
about Oil Additives like Slick 50, Prolong, Zmax and others
The fact is they are totally useless and in many cases actually
detrimental to your engine. The Federal Trade Commission has issued
charges of false and deceptive advertising that these and many other
additive manufacturers have misled consumers into believing that
their products offer increased engine protection and performance
when added to your motor oil.
Federal Trade Commission Charges zMax with False and Deceptive
Read about the latest FTC charges against zMax in our informative
articles link. ZMax is the latest company to be charged in a long
list of companies. The FTC has successfully halted false and deceptive
advertising by the marketers of Dura Lube, Motor Up, Prolong, Valvoline,
Slick 50. STP and other major brands of engine treatment systems.
Without going into extensive detail here's what you need to know
about aftermarket oil additives: There are basically two types of
additives used, either Teflon based with PTFE (like Slick 50) or
Chlorinated based (like Dura Lube) with some type of carrier, usually
a paraffin based carrier or other mineral oil. Some have extremely
large amounts of moly, zinc or phosphorus, all extreme pressure
agents which are detrimental to a motor oils proper function in
the amount that they use.
Teflon does absolutely nothing inside your engine. Teflon must be
heated up to about 800 deg. F to get it to stick to anything for
friction reducing purposes, just like the Teflon on a frying pan,
yet in your engine all those suspended microscopic colloidal Teflon
particles do is gradually attach to you oil pick-up screen and reduce
oil flow to your critical components as well as reducing the oil
flow in other critical internal engine passages by attaching themselves
to the passageway walls. In addition, as your oil filter filters
out some of these suspended Teflon particles, your filter flow rate
will be reduced which may eventually become restricted and default
in to by-pass mode, which means unfiltered oil will be flowing through
Ever get bleach on your fingers? It's pretty slippery isn't it?
Same principle here. Add enough Chlorinated components to a carrier
and mix it with some type of teflon, moly, zinc or phosporus &
you can reduce the friction, except for one "minor" thing: Chlorinated
additives mixed with oil and subjected to heat forms hydrochloric
acid! Hydrochloric acid is extremely detrimental to you internal
engine parts. Get the picture? That's it in a nutshell. Bottom line
is: When using a properly formulated motor oil you do not need any
additives whatsoever and additionally, the additives you may put
in can react negatively with the additives the oil company carefully
blended in. Do yourself a favor and stay away from aftermarket oil
additives, regardless of how appealing the bogus claims they make
in their advertising are!
What if They Have a Test To Show How Their Additive Works?...
At a recent trade show we were at one of these miracle oil additive
companies was there with a machine that demonstrated how their additive
reduced friction. It was a motor with rotating solid steel disc
secured to the motor shaft and a torque meter with a flat piece
of steel mounted on the torque arm. They put every type of oil on
the market, one by one, on the machine & pressed hard on the
torque meter and at about 20-40 lb-ft torque the torque arm would
stall the motor....that is until they cleaned it off & tried
their (chlorinated) additive "IXL" on the bearing & ran the
People were amazed as the meter peaked out at 140 lb-ft. torque
and still didn't stall the motor! We knew what was happening but
many unsuspecting consumers were eating it up and standing in line
to buy the additive! The next day we showed up with some Head &
Shoulders Shampoo disguised in an oil bottle & had the IXL additive
people try it on their test machine. The operator was amazed as
the motor just barely stalled at 140 lb-ft! The operator says that's
pretty good stuff, what is it? We said Head & Shoulders. He
was quite embarrassed to say the least. Head & Shoulders
has high levels of high potency ZINC in it that attaches itself
to ferrous metals. Coke soft drink will do exactly the same thing.
ZINC reduces friction and provides anti-wear protection and is present
in most motor oils at a much reduced level. Now, would you put Head & Shoulders in your engine?
Additionally, the test machine was measuring EXTREME PRESSURE.
Motor oils do not have extreme pressure additives blended in like
gear lubes do. Their is absolutely no need for EP additives in a
motor oil. A gear lube would not stall the motor as easily because
gear lubes have high levels of Extreme Pressure additives blended
in, but do you think they would test their IXL additive against
gear lubes? Heck no! They use motor oil....They are comparing apples
to oranges & tricking you into buying their additive! Same theory
holds true for Slick50, Prolong, Dura Lube, Motor Up, Valvoline
Engine Treatment and many others. Please DON'T be fooled by oil
is the undisputed leader in synthetics.............
Since 1972, AMSOIL Synthetics have proven to be the
BEST. AMSOIL also engineers and manufactures Super Duty Oil filters which have a
12,500 mile service life as well as specialized filtration systems for
commercial and fleet applications in cars and light, medium and heavy trucks
which can filter particles down to less than one micron ( a standard full flow
oil filter can only filter to 20-25 microns with any degree of efficiency) making oil changes virtually unnecessary and virtually eliminating engine wear.
These filters have been proven by millions of miles of over-the road trucks,
construction equipment and fleet service.
