A Great Metal Conditioner

I just wanted to let everyone know about a metal conditioner that is basically setting higher standards throughout the industry. The name of it is Roil Gold and Jaguar Magazine did an article on it so I will let the article do all the talking.

Well, I am a mechanical fitter by trade and I would be lying if I told you that I'm not sceptical about additives that claim to clean injectors and protect your engine. But from what I have been reading and what people are saying that have used it for a long time it all sounds good.

Are you doing this out of the goodness of your heart, or are you trying to sell something?

There mate I fixed it for you. If you look closely at the Jaguar article at the bottom it tells you that you can get hold of it thru them. Also you can get hold of it thru the guy on the About Protection site. So if I was that worried about it why would I direct u to those sites.
But tell me if there was something out there that sounds like a good thing would u want to know about it?

Sounds interesting Danni, but I think people are just skeptical about these sorts of things - especially stuff on the net, and also stuff that's only available through "special" people and places . . . brings back memories of too many pyramid scheme's / amway etc ( not that some of amways products aren't good ).

Its just wierd its not promoted more widely - if its as good as it says, I would have thought it should be in stores and making real cash . . . *shrugs*

The only other worry for me is the other sutff the company sells

Weird array of gear !

Has anyone else actually tried the Roil?

Trust me I am the biggest skeptic out there. I don't use Roil at the moment and I dont have any. I have been hearing about Roil for about 6 months and how good it is supposed to be but before I will use anything like that I want to know everything about it. So I bought the Roil manual and the Queensland University of Technology tests so I could find out for myself.
The Falex test says it all, when Mobil1 was first tested the lubricant broke down at 2250lbf, when Roil was added the result was 4500lbf+ and that is because the machine only registers to 4500lbf. So no one actually knows at what force the lubricant breaks down with Roil added. To me that was a huge selling point.
To explain about Neways please read what I have written here
Breast Cancer.... An Important issue

They make pruducts that don't have any hidden bad chemicals and as for not having it in any shops, they would rather sell it by word of mouth because it is so successful for them.
Try this link it may give you a bit of an idea
http://www.neways.com.au/

TopGhia to answer your question I did it so that people can find out about something new and I will be selling it because from what I have found out so far I don't think there is anything out there that can match it for price and performance.
Here are a couple of people who use it.

I hope that has explained it a bit better, its a personal choice and isn't for everyone but if you do want more info just let me know:)

You say at 2250lbf the Mobil 1 broke down, but how much force is actually being exerted on the oil in a normal engine operating environment.

If it as at most 1500lbf, then whats the use of increasing the force it can handle ???

Does anyone know....

What is the active ingredient?
I have been using Molybdenum Disulphide and I think it has prevented some damage when there was trouble.
I bought another product containing Teflon and it seems to have made the engine quieter and smoother. It was on special at a much reduced price.
The problem is that they are very expensive and may not be cost effective.
Is this product different and how much does it cost?
