    Oil additive - great stuff

    Anyone ever use this??

    This stuff is amazing - a buddy of mine at work has showed me some comparative using vs not using and the results are fantastic - additive to any oil including two stroke:



    I bought a bottle - if anyone is interested, I can get more - it's about $35 a bottle of concentrate

    What are you expecting to occur when you use the product?

    From one of the FAQ;

    Does Revive mix with gasoline and other fuels?
    No, Revive is a petroleum product that fortifies oils, not gasoline or other fuels. Do not mix Revive with fuels.

    How is Revive used in a two-cycle engine?
    Pre-mix 1 ounce of Revive with 1 quart (or 3 percent) of two-stoke oil, then use the manufacturer's ratio of oil-to-gas mixture.

    Can Revive be used in new equipment or engines that have not been broken in yet?
    Follow the equipment or engine manufacturer's break-in procedure; use Revive when it's time for the first oil change.

    I revived an old craftsman mower, by simply using some lower end oil, for an outboard motor, got one more season out of it, curious if Revive is alot like Wynn's engine rebuild in a can? Heavier oil create more compression, on a soon to be worn out engine?

    These seem to be contradictory....

    It is supposed to improve oil performance (lower friction, longer life, higher performance etc....) Same things people seek with higher-end two stroke oils....

    I think they are stating that so some ding-dong doesn't pour it into his gas tank for his car thinking it will help......

    What are you using as the "base" oil?

    What were you shown that made you such a believer in this product?

    Here's a good demo...
    part 1
    part 2

    Buddy of mine builds/rebuilds engines and swears by it, buys it cases at a time. I'll see if I can get a hold of any of his pics.

    I am going to run a synthetic "base"

    The Revive product material talks repeatedly about it being a 100% petroleum product that fortifies the oil. The inference is that the oil being 'fortified' needs to be petroleum oil.

    I have forgotten the various chemical families that different synthetic oils are created from.

    For me the red flag is the dependence on testimonials and the absence of deep technical documentation.

    The fact that it is made with 'environmental awareness' made me chuckle. I gotta get me some of that....
