One might consider looking for an oil that has a high level of moly in it. Molybdenum Disulfide is the premier friction modifier that one can get in an oil. And by it being already a part of the mix, there is nothing to add and dilute the oil formulation. Here are 3 articles on why Moly is a great component in an oil.... www.bobistheoilguy.com/moly-basics/'''www.bobistheoilguy.com/moly-basics/''' Now, one can continue to play with snake oil marketing, or go with something the entire lubrication industry recognizes as a proven, reliable friction modifier. And since it is part of the oil chemistry from the motor oil maker who uses it in their mix, there is nothing extra to pay for or add. Doesn't get a whole lot better than that. I have no doubt that some who have used one of the marketed friction reducers has gotten good results, but that is hardly scientific and only anecdotal at best. I am not going to risk a $30,000 motor on the testimony of someone who threw it in their personal vehicle. I need to see dozens of engine teardown and component inspections. With molybdenum disulfide, that already has been done years ago by the oil industry and component manufacturers themselves. Not Joe's truck repair shop in Rocks Throw, Wherever.
