I use Tufoil in all my 4 cycle engines and have for over 10 years now. If you want to check it out, and read about the 4 ball bearing test under presure. The top 25 additives lasted around 13 minutes before they went up in smoke. Tufoil lasted 15 days before they smoked. I have 2650 hours on a Kohler and it still don't need oil added between oil changes and over 3,000 on my Yanmar diesel in my JD that don't need oil added between changes. In my air cooled, I change every 50 hours. My trucks, I change every 3,000. You put in 8 ounces in a 5 qt. system the first time and 4 ounces after that. I buy it by the gallon. Don't add it to a new engine until it has about 100 hours on it, because this stuff is so slick, you want to make sure the rings are seated and it is in the Guiness book of records as the most efficiant lubricant known to man. I also run it in my hydros, but don't put it in an automatic transmission. I've heard it is so slick, they start slipping. When changing an oil filter, once the oil runs down the filter, you can't grip it hard enough with your bare hand to turn it off of an easy to turn filter. I have had great luck with this. If you put it in your truck or car, you can actually feel the extra power. When you accelerate is when you have the most friction, but with this, there is very little friction, so very little heat either. It's great for air cooled and water cooled.<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>
