As promised here is the analysis for Rislone.


Oil Brand/Weight : Rislone additive
Type Equipment : clean oil
Miles/Hours on oil : clean
Total Miles/Hours : clean

Results ppm/% Comments (blank=normal)
Wear
Copper 0
Iron 0
Chromium 0
Lead 0
Aluminum 0
Silicon 1
Tin 0

Additives
Molybdenum 0
Sodium 0
Magnesium 0
Zinc 380
Potassium 0
Phosphorus 352
Calcium 768

Physical Properties
Water negative

Sulfur na
TBN 5
[email protected] C (cSt) 9.2 SAE 20w
TAN 0.5

This is the Rislone "Add at Oil Change" additive found in the Yellow bottle, and cost's approx. $2.29 at Walmart. The oil is dyed blue/green. As you can see it is nothing more than a 20 weight mineral oil with very low levels of calcium detergent, some anti-foam, and very low levels of ZDDP, about 1/4 to 1/5 of the level you would find in an SL formulated motor oil. The level of detergent is too low to really affect cleaning. Any "run-of-the-mill" OTC motor oil will contain much more detergent than this brew.

Advantages to using this OTC additive? None whatsoever.

Disadvantages: 1.) Cost. In my view it should cost less than Walmart's Oil Additive in the blue bottle ($.78), since Rislone contains less ZDDP. 2.) Thinning of the crankcase oil. If I had an engine spected to run 30 weight oil this additive would thin it down. Testing revealed no viscosity index improvers (VII's) to keep the oil from thinning down.

Very interesting, thanks for posting it!

(I moved this to the virgin samples section for you)

Molakule, thanks for the info. Down the road, I might try to get my hands on some Neutra and run a VOA.

Neutra uses esters to clean, that won't show on a VOA

Chances are pretty good that Rislone won't be using much, if any esters in their $2 product though.

True, I doubt they do. Maybe they use some solvents to clean? That wouldn't show either. Is that possible.

But I also meant that for Groucho to do a VOA on Neutra would probably be pointless as it would show up pretty much blank. And we know why already.

Thanks Jason,

i guess then that it was pointless to do a VOA on Rislone?

We assume no esters, but we don't know.

There are certain chemicals one can use to test for esters as the esters will agglomerate to the wall of a beaker when these chemicals are added to an oil.

No esters were found in Rislone, and Rislone makes no declarations about there being any in their products.

I ran these tests on Rislone and CD2 at the request of a number of people on the board who wanted to see if there were any real economic or mechanical benefits to some of these OTC additives.

Kudos to you Molakule, it's a valuable report. I hope to contribute more soon, hence my idea about neutra.

I sent the VOA to Rislone and got a response from one of their VP's with (hopefully) a promise of another response from their tribologist.

Their tribologist responded(posted in additives section), not a lot of detail though. Wish someone more knowledgable than me could tell me if there's anything to their points--

1. That the product is different when mixed with oil than a stand alone product.
2. That some of the factors don't show up in testing.
