I almost misread thats as turbo tax. With Archoil,Liquimoly, and Airtec it seems funny there is any room left for nano lubrication sales pitches. Nice find. Least its made here whatever it is.

That price tag will push lots of people away and towards LM Ceratec or Archoil.

There is another product called Tribotech. I’m surprised there isn’t some kind of legal action going on over the name. Tribotech has been around quite some time.

Back in 1986, my boss had a (spoof obviously) can of oil additive "rings and bearings" in a can.

I remember when I first started out they sold tablets you put down each cylinder to rebuild the cylinders and rings. I never tried them and have no idea what they were.

You'd put the tablet down the spark plug hole? I love it.

Just enough involvement for the gullible novice.

Yes they sold them in the JC Whitney and Warshawsky catalogs and in the back of magazines (the horror freight of their day). LOL

Trav,

Those tablets always worked and they works well!!! I worked at at Sohio Gas Station in the 70's and we had a rack with Fuel Mileage Boosters (looked like pills)that some people would buy now and then. The Boss's son, Wayne, ate one on a dare and it did not make him sick. Lots of weird stuff was being sold back then during the "oil embargo" days.
