Hi.
I just installed Liqui Moly Mos2 engine oil additive in my Hyundai Elantra.Very happy with the results.
Someone has told me Mos2 additive can create 'Sulfuric acid' .
Is this true? How long i can left Mos2 additive in my engine? I am planing to do 1year/15000km oil change with castrol edge 5w-30 ACEA C3,API SN rated engine oil.
Thanks in advance.
Bob.

really the only way to see is if you have abnormal TBN loss via UOA testing. It would be specific to your driving style and profile.

All UOA's i've seen with Mos2 seem to have normal TBN numbers, but as mentioned above, testing your specific vehicle is the best idea.

Dear Mr. Bob,

thank you very much for contacting us and your interest in our LIQUI MOLY
products.

MoS2 is a solid lubricant that creates no sulfid acids. There is absolutely
no problem to do oil range intervalls of 12 months / 15.000 km with MoS2 in
the engine oil.

We hope we could help you with our informations. Should you have further
questions regarding our products we would be very pleased to get contacted
from you again.


Best Regards

i. A.

Well there you go. As I mentioned before, I've never seen a significant TBN drop with Mos2. I run Mos2 in all of the cars at my normal OCI's.

Also remember that Lubo Moly has significant boron in it.

If I don't have more than 6-7 pints VSOT(Valvoline Synpower Oil Treament) I would use MOS2 in all my cars too.

the 'Sulfuric acid' cant be made if there is no water in the oil, most acids are water based. if the vent system works right you should not have much water in the engine. course you still have to change oil on time.

Not the best, but car had engine poped open prior that OCI, valve cover gaskets changed, sludge cleaned from top end,Kreen piston soak.
That Oci had Maxlife + Delvac top offs and AutoRX added+MoS2.
