When added to the engine oil the Super Friction Fighter (MoS2 also
known as “Moly“) circulates with the oil and plates onto the metal
surfaces, enhancing the fluid’s lubricating and protective properties
by preventing metal to metal contact.
Q. What is "Moly" ?
A. “ Moly” is the short name for the substance known
as ( it’s scientific name) Molybdenum disulfide. “Moly”
(Molybdenum disulfide also called out as MoS2) is a naturally occurring
mineral, formed and mined with other ores in various parts of the world.
It is highly refined and processed into sub-micron particle size at
which time it can be used as a “solid lubricant.” It possesses the
properties of being able to withstand extremely high load capacities
(400,000 psi). It is chemically stable, has a very low coefficient of
friction (0.05 to 0.09 in powder form) and has thermo-stability over
2,000°F. All of these properties are essential to reduce metal to metal
contact and thereby reduce friction, heat, and wear.
Q. What is the difference between Molybdenum
Disulfide (MoS2= Super Friction Fighter) and Teflon (PATE) in terms
of Solid Lubricants?
A. Both materials are very slippery. Molybdenum Disulfide, or Moly,
is a naturally occurring inert mineralization that will sustain loads in
excess of 400,000 psi, while PTFE, a manufactured chemical, can only
sustain loads in the 350 to 450 psi range. MoS2 remains effective up to
its melting point exceeding 2,000°F while PTFE forms a noxious gas near
650°F. Some of this gas will invariably bypass the rings. Additionally,
PTFE particle size is inconsistent and generally too large to remain in
suspension in the oil. PTFE tends to “b
all-up” or congeal at high temperatures, creating the possibility of
plugging oil passages or pick-up screens.
Q. Will Super Friction Fighter help my vehicle
A. The primary result of using Super Friction Fighter (MoS2) is the
reduction of friction. The results of lowered friction are lower
operating temperatures, reduced wear, reduced fuel consumption, reduced
emissions, prolonged life, and increased horsepower. In many cases this
DOES increase gas mileage, but that can depend on the kind of vehicle
and how you drive.
NOTE*Most recently I installed Super
Friction Fighter in a 1995 ford van with a 300 ci. 6 cylinder motor in
it. At the time of instillation the van had 142,000+ miles on it. When I
put the Super Friction Fighter in the engine oil in the van it was
getting 11.2 MPG. Approximately 1,400 miles later (and with the same oil
in the engine) the van was (and on last checking) getting 13.7 in town.
After installing the Super Friction Fighter oil additive there have been
times that this van has gotten what seems to be unbelievable mileage.
The averaging highway mileage is up from the 11.2 to an average of 14.2
to 14.7 on the open highway. These are real numbers.
Q. Can Super friction Fighter be used in a high
mileage car as well as an engine with 20-30K miles on it?
A. Yes, and it could help prolong the life. However, it is not
intended to be a cure in a can. It will not “fix” a pre-existing
problem. Best results are gained if Moly is used throughout the
vehicle’s life. Read more… Super Friction Fighter (”Moly”) is so
slippery that you should only install it in engines that have had either
the time or the miles to be broken in. It’s our opinion that with most
vehicles this occurs after the vehicle has a minimum of around 10-15K
miles on it. This may very according to manufactures and cylinder wall
metals. For most vehicles it may be (check with your mechanic) safe to
say that an engine should be well broken in if it has 20-30K on it.
Q. Can oil change intervals be extended with
the use of "Super Friction Fighter"?
A. It is recommended that you stay within the manufacturers’
suggested intervals, regardless of whether using Super Friction Fighter
or any other oil supplement or additive.
Q. Is Super Friction Fighter worth using
if I change my oil every 2,000 or 3,000 miles?
A. The MoS2 uses the oil as a carrier to circulate throughout the
engine and plate onto all points of contact under heat and pressure.
Once the MoS2 has plated (after about two hours of driving time), the
oil could be removed but the MoS2 in Super Friction Fighter will remain
on the surfaces for several thousand miles. Therefore, we recommend that
Super Friction Fighter be added every 6,000 miles regardless of how
often the oil is changed.
Q. Can Super Friction Fighter be used with
synthetic oils as well as non synthetic oils?
A. Yes. Although synthetic oils are designed to outlast mineral
oils and have a very good high temperature stability, they sometimes
have a lower sheer strength. MoS2 has a sheer strength in excess of
200,000 psi., and therefore is an excellent supplement to synthetic
