It's called restore and it leads to sludge and clogged oil baffles. I am using a new product called lubro-moly. I have a thread I will be updating at every fill up. Restore works but only for about 1000 miles before it wears off and the chunks fall out of the grooves it filled up and then clogs your filter

Yeah it does work but Everett is right it does start to turn to sludge after a little bit. Its good to use like a 1000 miles before you change your oil.

Lubro-moly is new to the market however it isn't really new. It's a component of red-line non diesel oil and it's found in royal purple. Lubro-moly is the name brand and you can find it at napa. I haven't seen it anywhere else. I have already gone thru 1 tank of gas and my per tank mileage is up to 520 from 450 kms. So it's doing something because my driving habits haven't changed. Google it. There is a wealth of info. And it's made in Germany. Mmo just cleans,it really doesn't lubricate at all. Mmo is great for sludge engines because it will dissolve the sludge slowly. Seafoam is better for sludge. Dissolves it faster however if the engine is really bad chunks may break loose and plug the filter. I will seafoam about 1000 miles before oil change... I will take a pic of the moly flyer so you can see what it looks like
