If it was bought at a truck stop then that would have helped. Also if kennedy uses a quart of "cheap new moter oil" then why was that not included? This test is reminding me of another one I didn't buy either.


Well, what do you know..... The K&N troll is trying to discount another study. I don't think your opinion carries much weight around here..... You want a A/C delco filter to go in your ride?

Who made you the posting police? At least I added to the discussion unlike you doing nothing but sucking up for those that are in the clique. I'm not in your clique and never will be but I will keep adding to dicussions whether it fit your adjenda or not.

Fair enough...
Perhaps you would be willing to do better, more comprehensive studies rather than snipe at another person's hard work?

Also... You are QUITE correct in your statement that you didn't buy the study. That information was provided to you free of cost.

So 2 cycle oil isn't going to reduce the BTU value of diesel fuel. So its still a excellent choice as a fuel additive so far...


....
Cetane number should not be considered alone when evaluating diesel fuel quality. API gravity, BTU content, distillation range, sulfur content, stability and flash point are very important. In colder weather, cloud point and low temperature filter plugging point may be critical factors.
All of the cetane boosters on the market tend to reduce the BTU content of the fuel. Hence it reduces the MPG and the HP/TQ numbers. Sulfur content is been reduced national to 520 HFRR (<15 PPM Sulfur) which mean less lubricity of the fuel. Cetane boosters tend to de-stabilize the flash point. Go back to my Chemical definition page and look at the flash points of the different chemicals.
Very good point thats the first time I have seen someone with info on BTU's of 2 cycle oil post or at least I missed it in many thread readings on 2 stroke oil. Would you mind sharing where you found it and how much it might vary from the racing bean oils (which I would guess might be comparable to bio fuel) to TCW-3 and or PWC oils etc.

I'd also add viscosity and film strength to important properties of diesel fuel.

He soliceted MONEY right here and farmed out the testing on your dime. Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't he supplied products from companys too? Sound like he got paid at least somthing for his work. Not that it wasn't knoble or well intentioned but just because he did it does not grant him immunity from scrutiny. This is a discussion forum guys. Is it not OK to dicuss? Lighten up it's just the internet. The question I think people have is that he came up with one company that just so happens to be releasing a product for sale to the public this week. Hello... should this at least warrent questions about a company few have heard of? Let me throw a political WAG at this since it's just the internet. The enviromentalist will have a field day knowing bio diesel is being promoted by this test. The tester is a Union man. Enviromentalist,Unions, many special intrest groups stick together politically. Democrates. Probably a stretch but you guys seem to thrive on controversy. LOL. Lighten up it's a joke!

Greetings to All,
There are questions about our company & products, I'll attempt to answer the bulk of them here.
We've been in in the lubricants business since 1993, are based out of Utah (don't assume we're LDS/Mormon, we're not, but they've been great neighbors). Our company is relatively small, but we currently ship to 4 continents, over 90% of the business being to Railroads, Mining Operations, Municipalities, Power Plants and Lubricant Distributors. We do have a small retail distribution network (one of which is in Farmington, NM). There are petro-chemical engineers that develop products for us (some have PhD's and other letters after their name) but they do not work for us on a full-time basis. When developing a product their main priority is 'First, Do No Harm' (sound familiar?). While our vehicles are precious to us, our products also go in components that cost $500,000 or more. They have to work as advertised and not be detrimental in any way. We do not list our address, but many other reputable companies don't either. Fact is, we sometimes ship from other facilities. On large orders, especially overseas shipments, we will blend at a location near our raw materials suppliers (usually NY or Chicago) and then ship directly from there. One of our chemists always confirms quality onsite. Sorry for the long post, ask me if you have more questions.
I'm not just the Owner, I'm a customer with two Duramax Diesels.

As usual, Stump has nothing to offer. More concerned with stirring the pot, just ignore it.

Thank you Spicer for all the hard work. I was really surprised with the results. Anybody want a half of case of Stanadyne Performance Formula, j/k.

I will have to add some lubrication to the Stanadyne to use it up.

Thanks Jim! I hope your product does well! I did notice you have a FJ cruiser and wanted to make sure you stay on top of a potential issue that may need to be address before your warreny runs out.

MSDS Request

outwestjim, I've emailed your company and called this morning for an MSDS sheet but nothing. The nice lady on the phone informed me she would have it to me in "an hour or two at the most" but nothing yet. Could you post one on this site?

Thanks.

I checked with Amy, there must have been a size issue with the attachment, she has sent the MSDS' via fax.
Thanks,
