As the title suggests, heard people talk about MMO, putting a bit in the fuel, putting it in the sump etc.

But has anybody ever had a VOA done on it?

Forget the MMO, just use quality oil. While it may help it cleaning, it decreases the lubricity of the oil its added to. Look at tests I have posted.

Was just curious, not sure why my search didn't show up the linked thread though?

I blame gremlins........

YES - I did a search. That's how I got to this thread.

QUOTE:
OK sports fans, here's the buzz...
After a prior discussion in this forum, I sent a sample of MMO to Blackstone for analysis. I told them that the type of oil was UNK, but that it may be ATF. I poured the sample straight from the metal quart can.

MMO certainly looks like ATF, though the smell is only similar.

Here's what I received back just today.

I'm quoting from the comments section of the report.

JIM: This isn't ATF unless it is mixed with something. ATFs have a viscosity in the 10W range and flash off at about 360F at the lowest. ATFs usually have more additive in them than this. We suspect this may be a light hydraulic known generically as Mil-S-5606. It is used in high flying aircraft hydraulic systems being impervious to the cold. No moisture or insolubles found. No wear metals. This oil appears, from here, to be in serviceable condition.

end of comments

As for the elements that were found in the sample there were 32 ppm of Boron, 2 ppm of silicon, 1 ppm cacium, 902 ppm phosphorus, and 2 ppm zinc.

The SUS viscosity at 210F was 34.4. The flashpoint was 190F.

That's all there is. There ain't no more.
