Two things - I read evidence supporting that moly still does a better job than titanium which would tie in what with aquariuscsm said (I work on cost savings projects all the time for a major food company so I know where he is coming from) as the oil company could* be advertising something that is different but not necessarily better (and cheaper) and charging me the same to make more profits.

*Without some sort of extended used oil analysis or other research methods I don't know personally which is better. All I know is what I read.

I thought graphene was an invention that is really compacted graphite that can be made into thin sheets to eventually be used to make bendable screens for smart phones?

In Kendall oils, Titanium and Moly additives are used. Why would people say titanium additives replace moly if an oil has both?

My bad, I didn't catch the word "inferior" in the original post.

Kendall was the only one using both. That has now charged as the moly has been cut and almost completely removed. Think of it like the calcium/magnesium variations and arguments in oils.

Castrol uses both Ti and Moly in their gold bottle Edge IIRC.

Easiest analogy I can think of is soda and shampoo. Years back,soda contained pure cane sugar,and shampoo contained naturally derived soap barks and natural oils. Same soda today uses high fructose corn syrup and shampoo contains sls and silicones (all of these ingredients being cheaper and inferior BUT "gets the job done" per se),while charging more. Products can contain inferior ingredients,but still "can get the job done".
