If you've already seen it, great. If not, it's interesting I guess.

The third responder has a valid point.

I want to see more on this before I get too excited. Other "nanolube" products are snake oil.

If this is the 'real deal', and not snake oil, you will see it soon in auto engine oil.

Right now it seems to still be in the 'snake oil fringe' part of the market.

Hasn't 'Bardahl' been a huge proponent of this 'technology' for a long time?

As the first responder said "Get this on the market as soon as possible; the savings from the automobile sector alone might wean the US off foreign oil. 50% friction reduction would mean far better fuel economy and longer lasting engines.

Every application would benefit. The list is endless."


Hmmmmmmm...........Ya think he works for the company? Gushing with praise?

The scientist in question has won an award for the paper he published...nothing more. No practical product has been put forth and no real world benefits have been claimed.

Here's the original link of the press release issued by the university that the scientist works at: http://www.queensu.ca/news/articles/professor-uses-nanotechnology-prolong-machine-and-engine-life
