As a follow up to the poor results in some of the additives. The common theme I see is that 3 are oil based (used motor oil, Marvel Mystery Oil and Lucas). The remaining additives, with the exception of B1000 from Milligan Biotech, are all "emulsifiers". The most common emulsifier in gasloine additives is alcohol. According to Steve Westbrook at Southwest Research, alcohol is known to lead to poor HFRR results. I will check with him to see if other emulsifier components can cause this same result with poor HFRR results. SPICER

One question about this. What level of confidence do you have that the product they sent you to test is what they actually decided to produce and release as a consumer available product? I'm wondering since it was "experimental" at time of test, if the final product chemical makeup was still TBD.
BTW, thanks for all the hard work.

Once again great work Arlen!!! This study will benefit the diesel community tremendously.

This test just goes to show you that slicker and thicker isn't always better as with the oil based products you mentioned. I would have thought the Lucas would have faired better because of the super slick feel to the product. I'm now really interested in the Opti product. If this stuff can repeat it's performance in my tank the cost/performance benefit would be top tier.

Where does on purchase:
Opti-Lube XPD
FPPF RV, Bus, SUV Diesel/Gas fuel treatment
Opti-Lube Summer Blend
Opti-Lube Winter Blend

Google turns up nothing on Opti-Lube
And I'd be better off putting in a qt of wally mart twc 2 cycle oil than a bottle of the silver stanadyne stuff I usually use?
And, excuse my lack of knowledge. I use the standyne stuff and usually do about 1/2 bottle per tank 34 gal. Will a higher ratio like the whole bottle improve the lube factor?

Well I guess I will continue going to my B100 retail pump(11 miles from the house) and know that this is probably the best lubricity additive/combo fuel out there.

Now since I use it in large blends I suffer a small hit in mpg but I still average 21/22mpg with around B80.

I also throw in some TCW3 two stroke.

Truck loves the stuff.

Great work SPICER and once again thank you for all your hard work!
