It is not a friction modifier, it is an anti-wear additive.

So don't expect any mpg increases.

They suggest a 12 oz. bottle per 4-5 quarts.

You really only need about 1 oz/quart with oils that have about 750ppm of phos and zinc.

It's about 229.

If Hyperlube ZRA is KL 135, then its VI is 139.

You cannot assume Hyper is using KL135 or any other KLXXX alone.

Yes, and they most certainly would not tell you IF you asked (the old 'proprietary' bull routine you know). frown

And one more thing.

For people who say you can't reduce NOAC volatility using a GroupI, II or III base oil, take a look at the above chart.

Yes, I just re-read it myself. May use this or Lubegard next time.

I know exactly what you mean.
And I can't find lubegard anywhere.
Are you trying to tease me or.........

Clevy-Amazon my friend, order it from them. They have quarts and a HD version as well. If Amazon doesn't ship to Canada then I stand corrected.

greetings:

i have not checked to see if my local auto stores carry the hyper-lube zinc replacement addy, someday i will check and maybe give it a try.

However, I remember seeing the hyper lube oil supplement(linky below) at the wally world i usually go to and thought I would ask if anyone has any thoughts on it....

That's not the same thing.

What you linked to is the goo, much like the old STP blue bottle oil thickener.

http://www.hyperlube.com/c3/Oil-Supplement-c6.html is only good for "smokers." oilburner
