Ok..is it just me? When clicking the link above I get an entirely different thread that has nothing to do with Militec! I've had this happen quite alot lately...searching for STP in virgin oil analysis I get 2 hits but neither brings up a thread with anything to do with STP [I dont know]

So again is it just me?

It always amazes me that when militec1 comes up and several of us show that we use it and it causes no problems and in fact works well, that it just slowly disapears onto the back shelves. [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

It is a great product, and I will always use it. [Razz]

Assuming that Militec CAN cause acid, did the bypass filter remove the acid then? Is it safe to use this product in a mechanical system as long as water is removed from this system?

It is just you, the link takes you to his oil analysis that he used Militec. Yes he should have mentioned that when he posted the analysis, so it did not confuse anyone.
