Boris Zhmud is CTO of Applied Nano Coatings.

Boris says low-viscosity engine oil causes an increased risk of engine wear.

Conveniently, Boris has some coatings to sell you to help mitigate that risk. He is a nice guy and is only looking out for your engines, you know.

Seems to be referencing the use of low viscosity in heavy trucking mainly.

Was also thinking the same thing when I read article.. about selling/tooting his own horn..

That is where the car engines had to go. Look at the airlines getting planes with the low fuel consumption engine and /designs. MPG is a driving force.

Plenty of papers and current applications in the automotive world that have already gone here. Not saying for better or for worse, but as applications have changes, so have the requirements they have to meet... No different here...

Boris Zhmud isn't unknown in the lubricant business.. I think his name was on a white paper posted here a few years ago about elektrion (similar to voltol, what the germans used in WW2 as anti-wear agent). and I remember him from other papers aswell, all lubrication related.

More metal to metal contacts...since there is less cushion with lower HTHS smile

Bore polishing....ie greather oil consumption with that smile

That are the cons I see when one wants to push FE oils in my car

Oh that. For a minute there, I thought it was my ex wife's lawyer talking in 1986.
