So I was poking around on the Mystik website and came across ViscidLube, they claim it is a "Polymer rich" formula to decrease oil consumption. It sounds like Motor Honey or similar, but they go out of their way to tout the minimal effect on cold oil.

https://www.mystiklubes.com/do/product/INDUSTRIAL_SPECIALTY/663618002

Not planning to use it in anything, but just curious if anyone had tried it.

I like the disparity...

"Raises viscosity at high temperatures with minimal effect on low temperature fluidity and cold weather start-up."

@40°C, cSt 9757
@100°C, cSt 805
Pour Point, °F (°C) 0 (-18)

On the flip-side, look at that viscosity index! Catterham must have a basement full of this stuff...

Check out the Pentosin PS fluids. They have VIs of over 300.

I don't know HOW they do that, even starting with a very high PAO content base stock as they do.
Do they load it up with a TON of the newest asteric VIIs?? ???
