    Supposedly the oil molecules are polarized to help them bond to the metal components of the car- The chemistry behind it seems sound, i was wondering if anyone has seen any concrete independent studies of this oil vs regular oil or if anyone has an opinon

    that's what i was personally thinking too- I mean the idea is sound, but i dunno if it is really worth it-

    plus i'm wondering how the fuck you can possibly make an oil ion hold a charge with it being thrown around all over the place against charged pieces of metal

    i dunno

    If Martine's Si engine can last 300,000+ miles without this oil, chances are that you don't really need it.

    agreed

    wasn't really interested in purchasing it, i'm more of a mobil oil guy myself

    i was more interested in whether it has any merit

    I was reading the car czar and the same questioned was asked. Basically, his answer was that this product may help with engine startup wear, but that he had also never seen a motor go bad as a result of startup wear.

    Personally i wouldnt waste my money on it.
