Nope by cheapest oil with no add package and add BG MOA


If you do that (presumably SA oil) your zinc and phosphorus levels will drop to a few hundred and you likely will risk damaging your engine. Not much moly in this stuff either. Mainly calcium.

Sorry to bump such an old thread but I couldn't find much on this stuff. Will the stuff help a decent synthetic oil resist break down due to fuel dilution.

Probably not.


The value of a scientific theory is its ability to prompt further study, not that it has any relation to the established facts of scientific reality.

Does anyone think this could be a good cleaner?

Yes, the calcium levels could indicate an effective short-term cleaner.

While those high numbers look good, could they actually be a detriment to the engine or oil?

Most oils have certain formulations for a reason.

Could this be a case of more does not mean it is better?

The calcium seems a bit high relative to the ZDDP level.

I would expect calcium to be 2 to 2.5 times the phosphorus level, not 5 times higher. In that aspect it is reminiscent of GM EOS.

The Red Line Break-In additive might be a better motor oil supplement and cheaper on a per ounce basis.

Yes, you need to be careful not to overdo it. Excessive ZDDP will lead to a number of very bad outcomes.

The BG MOA should go in when the package is nearly or partially depleted, not at the beginning. High % overbase DP right at the get-go is not helpful.

If you are referring to LCD's LC20, that is an engine cleaner and antioxidant.

With the amount of Calcium and Sodium in this BG additive, it should have a high TBN.

The one element I see here that may be advantageous is the Antimony. The only other additive with Antimony I am aware of is the RLI's booster:

RLI Oil Booster

Which other fully formulated engine oils, besides RLI, (IF any) use a significant amount of antimony?? shrug
