First few hundred miles with LiquiMoly and can report that the engine(95 Ford F150 5.8L) is measurably smoother, namely at startup. Those first 60 seconds were high and rough revs, but no more. 3%-5% increase in fuel economy, which, for this engine, equates to an additional 6-10mi per tank. Added a half can(150ml) to my recent OCI(6qt 5w30 NextGen semisyn). Highly recommended.

Yes, It is good stuff, I have used it in my vehicles, Right now running XADO 5w-30 in the Hyundai. Great results with XADO but not worth the cost IMHO, The price really went up since last year. LM MoS2 is very cost effective and easily available at most NAPA.

This will mix in with the oil just like in PYB and Mazda 0w-20? Or does it not blend in as well?

We manually mix their Ceratec in a glass container with M1 10W-40 High Mileage and it stayed mixed well as it is in the engine after about 12 hours of run time.

I am new to the Liqui Moly line up of projects but so far they seem a cut above. Some companies selling the hexagonal boron nitride additive are so over the top with their marketing. I like Liqui Moly's more technical approach.

The LM2009 Lubro-Moly is great stuff that performs as advertised, as gr8gatzby observed.

Lubro Moly was used before the name change to Liqui Moly. Look for a layer of dust on Lubro Moly if it is setting on a shelf. Picked up some cans at NAPA for $5.49 after salesman looked it up as going into stock back in 2012. If it has a half life of a million years it should still be good. It poured fine and actually made the old engine make a bit less noisy. It was my first ever use. Currently testing some Liqui Moly Ceratec. Sounds like a non snake oil company the best I can read and from seeing two of their products.

Liqui Moly was and still is the original name for the German company that makes it.
They (IIRC the company who imported it) marketed it under the name Lubro Moly in the US, same company same products.

Not quite.
It's called lubro-moly here in Canada. Probably some legal thing.

And yes the liqui-moly/lubro-moly brand is a cut above everything else it competes against and their products work as advertised.
I've been using their stuff for nanny years now. I buy everything the napa shelves have so I'm never out,and so they keep ordering.
Thanks to risktaker he's been sending me cera-tec from a supplier in Toronto. Time will tell on how well the stuff works as the miles rack up.

i thought liqui moly was the oil and lubro moly was the additive? i put it in my 350 after an oil change and poured it right in the valley.

No.
They are named differently depending on the market it's being sold in. They are the same company and make oil and oil additives.
I used their 0w-40 in my charger and really liked it. I've used their mos2 10w-40 in an old mustang a couple of years ago too. It's already got mos2 added to it.
They've got an oil for every euro spec and are very popular in Germany from what I've read.

Locally you can still see Lubro Moly but it is old stock on the shelf or that was stored in a warehouse a long time.

Per http://www.techmax.ca/lubri.htm it seems Lubro Moly name would just mean old inventory in Canada or else where. Not an issue since it does not 'expire' like milk. smile

Napa carries it here. It's not old stock just found in a warehouse somewhere.
In fact it's all new stock because I've seen both the old and new cans when it comes to their additives and the oils themselves move fairly fast,and the containers and prininting are the same as shown in the website.
4 or 5 years ago the logo's and label underwent an updating and streamlining so everything got a new face,so I do know the difference between old and new stock
