Does anyone know what is the better product, Schaeffer oil Moly EP Treatment or Renewable Lubricants Dyna-Maxx E.P. Lube Concentrate.

I know the Moly Ep treatment is thicker than molasses-when bitog first started many moons ago-I remember a post where MolaKuke recommended mixing the Schaeffer moly with a product I think it was called Lube control-helped with oxidation of oil... I would only use the Schaeffer for an engine that may be experiencing some leaking or if you wanted to thicken the oil. I used a renewable lubricants booster package a few years ago and remember positive subjective experience with it-smoother acceleration in 2011 tdi I drove at the time. That additive package contained a lot of antimony and only used it with oils not containing moly-I remember MolaKuke writing something about having too much antimony and moly together were antagonistic-

generally best option is paying more for highest quality synthetic oil preference you have for your car. Again I am being hypocrite because I have used a lot of different additives-I tried to match additive with vehicle. For example tdi was a little laggy at times with acceleration so usually went for additives that lowered friction-lubeguard bio, renewable lubricants booster pack, and Liqui moly ceratec.

Insecurity with overcompensation are the root of evil deeds.

Not to be a downer but Schaeffer known for 50 plus sales reps certified as "Lubrication specialists" for only one formulator that is about to retire...
I had not seen them running their merit forward. Actually right now even Amsoil abandoned being the best - not a single comparative study published since 2013...
Moly Only Idemitsu have achieved a good results with moly but not with extended intervals due to oxidation.
Molybdenum Trioxide is still an abrasive and Sulphuric acid is still an acid and you cannot get away from that chemistry.

Any renewable lubricants will have issue with oxidation - it is hard to make unsaturated base oils to have oxidative stability without hydrogenation.
