Not necessarily related to PCMO traditional uses (eg, in car engines) but has anybody seen any corrosion tests featuring motor oils? Would you expect most to perform similarly given the similar application specs or would there be a range of results given different base stocks and additives?

Sequence IV A is actually a corrosion test.

I've only seen guys use used motor oil to rust proof mowers.

What are you trying to rust resist ...

BoeShield T-09 is the best spray-on rust inhibitor I know of. Dries tack free and really clings. Motor oil would be a very distant also-ran to this stuff smile


Formerly in marine engineering. In an earlier life I owned my own petroleum tank truck, and hauled for the majors and independent's.
