I may have to try it. Nano Technology.

synthetic magnesium silicon hydroxide (MSH) nanoparticles

On sale for $49, for the small engine formula, regularly $99!
I didn't see the normal "but act now and get two, just pay a separate fee"

May work better than Boric Acid to reduce friction.
"Reduce friction by more than 10X over engine oil alone."

Makes me think of Castor oil when I see this:
COMPONENTS CAS NO. AMOUNT
Synthetic Ester Oils/Plant Based Oils Blend Proprietary 70% - 99%

nothing new under the sun, a bible proverb, still hold true even today!
this has been around, been around and you guessed it been around.
in the sisties there was the magic pill you dropped into the gas tank, jump a few years and whamo-slamo, slick 50 and the beat goes on.
truth told, NOTHING replaces metal that IS NOT THERE ANYMORE!!!
before you drop that kind of coin, go to wally world and get some restore, same thing. it actually does work to an extent but needed every oil change or so.
to cure cancer, the doc does not put a band-aide on it, it is surgically removed, aka remove old parts for good parts.
i got a bridge to sell, located in brooklin.
