I have seen lots of comments about addatives in oils. There has also been reference to Molybdenum Disulphide. Sometimes called "moly". This is a carbon like substance that bonds with ferrous metals and tends to make the surface very slippery. However, add it to your engine oil at your peril. When heated Molybdenum DiSulphide changes to Molybdenum Trioxide which is a mild abrasive! Also be careful where you choose to use a moly product. It is usually a solid in a suspension of some liquid. If in a high speed revolving mechanical device. The solids can spin out and clog or cause other problems. Like most things, there is a place for this excellent product. Apply it appropriately.
