I'm thinking of Rislone Nano as Restore for engines with minor to moderate wear...

The pd does read very similar... wonder if anyone's done compression before and after using it. But would Restore not be suitable for minor/moderate wear? I use it in mine but I've got 160k+ on the engine..I also used Restore a few times over the years in my old Camry and that had over 300k.

I have used this additive on several vehicles in the last 2 -3 years.

01 Mazda tribute v6 quietened down the engine a good bit ,smoother ...maybe a .5-1 mpg increase within typical variation IMO.I recently loaned this vehicle to some one who returned it after 4 months with 16 oz of oil in it.I think the "plating/friction reduction treatment may have contributed to the vehicle still being functional.

03 Honda 4 cyl 5 speed a hand me down from the wife averaged about 27 mpg which I thought was low.I used a half bottle of the product after I got the car from the wife and did an o/c.About a month later the wife hopped into the car to go to a restaurant ,she sat there for a second and then asked "what did you do to my car ,it's so quiet." I had not told her about the additive.She requested that whatever I did That i should do to her Honda automatic.The mpg went up to 29 avg after 800-900 miles.

91 Plymouth Acclaim 4 cyl auto(recent acquisition) earlier this week I added a half bottle to the car and did a 180 mile round trip. The engine was quieter at the end of the round trip than at the start.About 300 more miles have been put on the car since then and the engine is a lot smoother and quieter.Which is kind of a drawback as I can now hear every squeak of pulley and belt the old car gives off....lol.I have not had a chance to check the mpg due to the odo not working.

I know many here will call me mistaken ,a liar or delusional..
But I only report my observations.
And based on my experience I feel it works and I will continue to use it.
I will also say that I always add it before going on a long drive,I feel that it gives a better chance for the effects to start building up.
Give it a shot,Rislone has been around for decades with its products so they are not a fly by night company.

I use it for coating bullets. I have a few pounds of it in the powder form. It has its merits for coating bullets. From what I was told by a company that produces the stuff it is not that good as an oil additive, it falls out of suspension. shrug

W is right below Mo in the periodic table, so one would expect this compound to have some similarities with our old friend MoS2.

This thread..๐Ÿ‘‡on tungsten additives. It's interesting that we don't see tungsten used by more oil formulators.

The problem is with it staying in suspension, and it isn't cheap.

Agreed. Which is quite similar to the problem facing moly, no? But it seems at least there are forms of tungsten that remain in a [specific type of] suspension??..if I understood Mola's explanation. I will admit this Nano Prime product sounds intriguing... and yes, it's not cheap... last I looked it was like $20+ on Amazon.

I certainly wouldn't be buying stuff off eBay and adding it willy nilly to my sump, that's for sure.

FWIW, I picked up 10 bottles at $2.85 each from AAP.

I've been running it in my Porsche. Don't notice a difference in the way it runs but my oil has a sweet blue tint to it now.

MoS2 and WS2 don't stay in suspension all that well. WS2 being the worst of the two. When I was doing my research on coating bullets I contacted a supplier of both products and talked to one of their tech people who was very well versed on the products and their applications. We discussed the products for use in oil as well as coating bullets. He told me WS2 didn't stay in suspension that well. I later read elsewhere the same thing.
