Most PCMO lubricants today already contain specified amounts of moly calculated to benefit the overall formulation, for example, Schaeffers, Redline, PP, MObil 1, etc.

I'd dose this stuff into my oil with an eye dropper...that's just crazy! Did you notice any visible insolubles?

its in a can, so you cant really see it. When pouring it was grey, no noticeable insolubles. On the other have the guard dog moly treatment I had a voa on a while back had noticeable insolubles (18,000 ppm). Mos2 is insoluble correct?

Your oil will even stay this gray colour for the next 5000k's. Mine did that when i drained it, still charcoal grey.

Most soluble moly's are dark amber, dark brown or greenish.

The appearance you describe sounds as if this is colloidal or an MOS2 suspended powder.

Lubro Moly, which i believe is now Liqui Moly, in a silver tin with the blue, white and red label i am sure is colloidal moly from its details. Yes it is gray in colour and changes the oil as well.

When I added a 300 ml can of this to 4.5 quarts of M1 5w40, the resulting UOA showed a concentration of approx 330 ppm of moly.

I observed a reduction in wear metals, but those numbers were trending down before I tried the LM MoS2. I can't say that it helped, but it didn't hurt a thing.

M1 0w40 already contains moly, adding a little to M1 5w40 seemed like an okay thing to do.

Later I decided to add 150 ml at each of two consecutive oil changes. No UOA from those fills.
