Would this additive potentially raise the total base number of the oil when using a small maintenance dose due to the amount of calcium additive?

Yes it will.
It raised the TBN of a 0W-20 I ran to a level higher than the virgin oil in the UOA and I only bumped the phos' level into the 900 ppm range.

Liqui-moly makes a product called motor oil saver. Its a di-ester and contains boron. It does exactly as you described and boosts tbn. I'm not sure about whether it contains moly. It's not black like their mos2 additive so I'm sure there isn't any mos2 in it.
Every used oil analysis that I saw with it in the oil had remarkably low wear metals.


I would use it, except that it is SOOOOOO durned viscous, and I don't need (at least not right now) the extra esters to help seals.

IF I ever notice severe oil burning/comsumption in this LS1, that stuff is the FIRST thing going into the oil (in the SUMMER time, of course wink ).

Does the Cer Tec contain as much boron? What about ca, and mg??


Ceratec does have boron however in what concentration I don't know. I pretty sure there isn t and ca or mg in it though

Yes, I'd estimate it has a TBN of 55-65 undiluted, so figure it out with your dilution.

There is a balance between the strength of the oil film and the additives , too much additives the oil film strength decreases not enough additives and there are other problems . What a world.

It rushes break in and cleans in the process.


Where did you obtain this incorrect info? The processing of a specific calcium element with other components is necessary in the production of detergents.

Break-in oils require a majority of Anti-Wear components with minimal friction reduction.
