Plus it's a total ripoff of Project Farm's format.

Yes Project farm is a cool channel and I think his methodology is good. The motor oil face off was pretty revealing: high cost doesn’t necessarily mean a better oil.

I just wish all the know it all, and smart [censored] people on here who just look to to discredit every single persons personal experience, with oil...who people like this who go out of their way to try and test oils, would actually just make their own videos. I mean since so many people certain ones in particular constantly ask for proof, and then even when proof is given they still discredit it, you would think they would themselves create a video themselves since they seem to be able to point out every single flaw, you would think they would be eager to prove or have their own perfect unflawed test.

There are a lot of take aways that do prove some oils in some of the videos such as project farm that totally translate into real world use, such as cold pouring....and flow etc. It’s time people that constantly ridicule or say That all of these videos are flawed etc....to back up their supreme intelligence.

People love to chirp, and look for one reason to discredit you...but when it comes time to offer up their own evidence as to why everyone and or their videos are wrong, just hear crickets.

We already have industries, institutions, and agencies that have chemists, engineers, and chemical engineers …
And advanced labs with test protocols … and they hold both chemical and formula patents
They also work hand and hand with equipment OEM’s etc … Must conduct Proof of Performance tests to get the approval.

This other stuff is entertaining …

Channels like Project Farm have some interesting and entertaining content, but the subject is so complex that it's impossible to really test for different scenarios adequately at home.

It's worth noting that Project Farm is quite open about the fact his testing isn't laboratory quality, and to not treat it as such. That being said, his methodology is usually quite sound. And some of his videos (like the Seafoam videos) might not talk about chemical composition or do "lab" style testing, but they do provide very convincing before / after comparisons and anecdotal evidence.

What about this video test tells you about the oil and how it will perform in your engine?

Is this your video?
