I had nine grad students in three groups using various instrumentation do analyses as part of their course work.

BTW, the paraffinic hydrocarbons were C11-C14, n-alkanes, normally denoted as "dearomatized kerosene."

1) Probably a decent fuel system cleaner,
2) and flush for adding to oil just before changing it. This is assuming of course you have evidence of, or suspect a dirty engine.

Since it has a very low viscosity, I certainly wouldn't leave it in the engine oil as it might thin it down to much, especially if your oil is already a XW20 weight oil.

When the oils were low detergent oils such as SB through SF, it might have helped.

Modern oils have such high detergency I doubt you really need to use this in concert with an engine oil.



As for fuel systems, the more modern Redline SI-1 and Techron should take care of any fuel system and upper engine area cleaning.

Exactly and as I've been saying for a long time, keep an eye on your oil level if you use it. Also for those afraid of any thinning effects it might have, clean your engine during the winter months, and/or bump up a grade. Keep the interval short, you're cleaning an engine, and most important, if your engine is clean, don't clean it!!

Visit the UOA section and check out the UOA's for the impact of MMO added to oil.

Exactly right. No engine needs a maintenance dose of any additive in the oil to stay clean with the modern oils today.
If there is an issue identify it properly then possibly consider something. Additives have their place but knowing when to use them and what has the best chance achieving a positive result is the trick.
