Two winners in my book. I think ESP is a sleeper that is going to catch on here in a big way. Time will tell.


The ESP is very good oil.



That Mobil 1 ESP 5w30 carries the Porsche C30 approval... Look that up on the Lubrizol chart.... That is a really hard spec to meet.

I agree with you both... That M-1 ESP is bad donkey.

Is C30 not equate to VWs 507?

I can't remember exactly, but, does the bottle of MOS2 say shake can well before adding to the crankcase?

There's no difference, it was discussed here before. IIRC the HD version only comes in quarts and was targeted for diesel engines with larger sumps. Chemically they're identical formulations. There's a thread here where a member asked the company, via email, and he posted the answer, I just can't find it. LOL


It was my thread. I don't feel like searching, but use "lubegard heavy duty engine protectant VOA".

No LM anti friction MOS2 does not say "shake well".

You're right. It wouldn't matter though, it falls out of suspension in the engine and settles at the bottom of the pan, so shaking the bottle isn't going to help.

Useless test, proves nothing. Sure after setting for long periods some MoS2 will settle, do you not think as soon as the engine is started and brought up to temp that it doesn't recirculate? MoS2 works, its cheap and it does what it is supposed to do. I've personally seen it quiet an older, noisy engine right in front of me on several occasions. It also works very well in the HEUI Ford Powerstroke engines.

Wow, and you guys pick on project farm videos...

While the test might be useless and prove nothing, Trav's pictures and commentary told another story about the product. Others posted similar findings. After dropping the oil pan in well maintained engines the stuff was collected in the bottom of the oil pan, certainly not in suspension, even after moving the vehicle to get it on ramps or into the garage for service. Things like that tell me a lot more about a product than useless shade-tree mechanic tests, or mfg. recommendations and advertisements.

Partially. And I wrote abouit it on Bitog, boy: MoS² tend after time to clump. If you have a bit bad luck, also in front of bearing gaps. All clear?
Ok if you have a engine with bearing clearance of later 60's, your gaps are sufficiently wide. Since later 90's, no longer. MoS² is a AW, from the WWII.

Yep. But it do it bad. His nephew, hexagonal boron nitride (HBN), do it better and longer.
In this comparison, MoS² is the stepbrother from graphite. For the same effect you can also put in your oil few squelched pencil leads...
