Default Any have any experience with MILITEC-1, a metal strengthener and oil additive?

http://www.militec-1.com/

A co-worker mention that he has added this to a bunch of engines mixed with mobil-1 synthetic and it bonds with the metal where the metal rubs with other metal. I'm not sure exactly how it works or what it does, but he swears by it. Anyone have any experience with it? I always looking for ways to extend the life of my car, this might just be one of them.

Any insight?

they make a pretty compelling arguement on their site. You also don't exactly fake military endorsements.

Hmmm I'm curious to see if others have experiance with them.

I use it on my knife collection and my firearms.

No more oily/sticky reside on grips, rails or Knife handles.Oily Butterfly knife handles = bad news
No lint or powder build up due to particles sticking to the oil makes cleaning a snap too.

I love this stuff.

The guy mentioned that he added it to his lawnmower engine, and was able to get more lawn mowings out of a single tank of gas than before. Anyone want to be the guinea pig?

I have used it in all of my firearms (discovered it during Desert Storm), and knifes. I have placed the proper amount in my tranny (5spd), per militec instructions. I guess until (and if) I ever have to take it down, I will not know the benifits. I did notice a small increase in milage, but this may have been due to the fact of switching over to all Royal Purple products(gear/motor oil).

I ran it my last oil change.

Meh

No statistically significant difference in mileage. I don't know how to quantify any engine protection benefits if there were any.

I ran some R/C bearings treated as directed then lubricated as I would otherwise lubricate R/C bearings (aeroshell), and they seemed to run about the same at the track and got unusable (partially seized) in about the same time as my other bearings.

I'm not planning on buying any more.

I used it on my BOV. It seemed to be sticking with WD-40 even after a cleaning. Added a couple drops of Miltec-1 after cleaning off WD-40, now it works better then it did when it was brand new. No joke! Only problem is it is extremely expensive at $6 an ounce. It is cheaper at the place I bought it then at the Miltec-1 website. Bought it here

The free sample is very small. I have used the 32 0z size in the past, and ordered a free sample for my range bag. It is about the size of a Visine eye drop container

For $20 I have nothing to loose.. I get a significant amount of gear whine out of the diffs in my car after repeated abuse in a short period of time (all heat releated), so for me it's a rather simple test to see just how well this stuff is for friction protection and heat retardation.

I'll toss it in the diffs and the trans in a few weeks and see how it goes.
