Dear Car Guru,

Bardahl EO has famous " polar attraction" formula, and Castrol magnetic EO also has similar formula, whereby oil molecules can cling to engine wall to form a protective film.
My questions are ;

(1) Are both use the same technology/concept?
(2) Castrol magnetic EO (as claimed by manufacturer ) can protect engine during cold start, can Bardahl EO do the same job?

Hope Car Guru here could provide enlightenment. Thank you.

layman

As far as I know gravity will pull the oil down to the oil pan. Best protection for cold start is lighter viscosity oil so that they can flow faster to start lubrication... smile_tongue.gif

correct.

all the "oil clinging" or "magnetizing" are all marketing raras.

the lighter the viscosity the better it is as cold start. its like messi, very good at acceleration but low top speed.

If we put one drop of oil on metal surface and spread it evenly.. then turn it 180.. now do you see the so called oil molecular cling to metal surface? Impressive or not ? Hahaha....
