Has anyone here tried this product?......Looks interesting as they say it was developed for the military.....Good stuff or snake oil like most oil additives? Any opinions....

Whenever some entity claims an association with the military, you always need to read the statement closely. Note that the military tests a lot of things and consequently rejects most of them.

Just because it was "tested" or "developed" by the military doesn't mean it was found useful or subsequently was adopted for some use. Testing is just that, to determine efficacy. I can "test" water in my engine as a substitute for oil.

Here is the statement on their website, read it closely. It actually says nothing about whether it was ever used by the military. Also note that such claims as this may be referring to a use that is completely different than the one for which the website is selling.



In the heat of combat, machinery must perform under pressure. It must take the heat, literally, and operate at temperatures most machines never reach: from -42° below to 356° F. Equipment failures can cost lives and millions of dollars.

Working in conjunction with the military and with Boeing Phantom Works, NanoProMT is engineering product specifically designed to meet strict requirements and rigorous demands of cutting-edge institutions. And we’ve been put to test, undergoing extensive lab- and field-testing that has led to military-grade formulas being applied to all NanoProMT products.

In fact, looking at the way it is a carefully crafted and worded statement makes me believe it is intended to obfuscate not inform.

Most cleaning additives are ok, some more effective than others. Anything claiming to be a magic super lubricant is probably snake oil, read the fine print. Most oil treatments are a viscosity increase, some have extra additives.

The engine manufacturers design their engines to use engine oil. The only oil additive I have used have been cleaners like MMO or Seafoam.

The only fuel additives I have used are Techron injector cleaner. GumOut with Regane and berryman's B12 chemtool, which is what Trav recommends for cleaning up injectors and carbon.
