What is their magic goo then? MOS has been accepted by ASE and other accredited institutions as being effective without compatibility issues. That is why auto manufacturers like BMW approve MOS additives, while no munfacturer has approved the use of prolong, slick50, and other snake oils. Testimonials from racers that were paid are not industry approvals. It may lower friction enough to win a race but those engines are torn down and rebuilt after every race. I say show me one manufacturer that actually approves the use of prolong.

Anything other than Molybdenum (MOS) is bullshit. Dupont tried to stop selling their teflon to companies making oil additives and got sued. They had lab results that indicated problems with micro particles clogging filters and may result in engine damage. At best they clog filters, at worst they can cause premature failures. They lost the suit and had to continue to supply it. If it worked Dupont would be marketing it directly. Teflon is not soluable and remains in powdered form in your oil!
