Skip. More of any one additive isn't better. Mos2 isn't a soluble form of moly anyway.
I just bought a can on MOS2 antifriction at napa ($4.50),it suppose to help with oil and fuel comsuption, and good for turbo car, I have a GLI 2.0T , so I hope this help to my engine to continue run in good shape, I read good reviews about this aditive, such as better quiet engine, smoth engine and stuff like that,
has anyone used this before? any advice or suggestions?

Read that and decide for yourself.

The idea being what? That oil formulators don't know about moly or what?
How is more moly better once you have a functional amount?
Plenty of top-flite oils have zero moly, like German Syntec.
I guess it would improve German Syntec too, even with all the builder approvals.
I am thinking of buying a 5L jug of the Lubro Moly Mos2 Leichtauf 10w-40 for my 1990 GLI 2.0 16v. I am using RP 20w-50 currently and want to change to Mos2 for the winter. Northeast winters (-5* -60*) mainly short trips, but a lot of winter highway driving to go skiing.
Has anyone tried it and have any comments?? For an old 2.0 16v 300k? new belts and seals though.
I know the MoS2 is a really good additive like zinc and phosphorous. I would like to hear people's reviews.
If you want a high-additive oil, Mobil 1 High-Miles is custom-made for Euro engines.
Look at all that boron!
Overbase Calcium, oh noes!
Anyone who pours some old can of slop into an oil this good deserves to have their car torched.
Moly, Zink and especially Magnesium are OLD style additives. Also the adds are supposed to mixed in ratios, not random amounts of different additives.

i've been using the mos2 in my 1.8t somewhat regularly and i commute on the highway daily. in my last oil change i neglected to use the mos2 and i just added some about 1500 miles into the life of the oil and i noticed a huge difference. The engine is smoother on the highway and my few economy slightly increased, and the boost curve feels quite lovely.
