The fine folks at MPT sent me some replacement oil to try it again at a lesser interval, they believe the UOA was affected by some type of fuel additive (I don't think I even used any). I still don't see how the TBN would be so low.
I ran into this MPT motor oil some time ago.
Since the last thing I want to do is try an unproved new oil on my expensive engines, I appreciate your going first.
What I did do is look into MPT Industries. MPT Industries
I first found that MPT Industries, Auto Chic, and OC Products are not business names registered with the Secretary of State in New Jersey. Additional digging found M.P.T. Racing, Inc., in Dover, NJ, incorporated in 1985 at the address of MPT Industries. Additional digging turned up Michael Trueba, Jr, as president of this privately held corporation.
I then ran down the business location on the NJ Division of Taxation website and found that 85 Franklin Rd 6B is a condo in an office building containing 41 offices. 6B is owned by Hamilton Park Realty LLC, which is a Brooklyn, New York entity with no disclosure on ownership.
At that point my conclusion was that if this oil wrecked my engine getting compensation for it was going to very difficult.
For those of us who go back to the early days of synthetics this all seems too familiar.
I am not sure who is blending this oil, but my guess is that it isn't MPT Industries, which appears to be a sales operation. The odd results you're getting in the analyses seems to confirm that hunch.
