    Thread: Liqui Moly Oil Forum

    1. 01-12-2016 12:53 PM #76
      I would like to give feedback on using MoS2 in my 2004 Passat. So far I am seeing around 3% gain in mileage in 100% city driving. If interested the details are here about my methodology:

      Impact of using LiquiMoly MoS2 on fuel economy (2004 Passat) - TDIClub Forums

      Also I no longer see small spots of oil from time to time on the driver side of the engine where the car gets parked (garage or driveway).

      It seems this thread is dead, and it seems Liquimolyusa hasn't replied in quite some time, but if anyone has an opinion or experience using several of these, i'd love to hear it:

      I've recently purchased a 2008 VW GTI with a 2.0 FSI Turbo motor @62k miles. I have decided to use Liqui Moly exclusively after doing a lot of research. Unfortunately, I have been unable to determine the optimal oil to use.

      I will be using the "Liqui Moly 2037 Pro-Line Engine Flush" before my 1st oil change, and the "Liqui Moly (20002) Cera Tec Friction Modifier" in my 1st oil change, then as needed. I drive approximately 75miles a day and will be upgrading the car to approx 350hp from the 200hp stock motor. I have narrowed it down to 3 types of oil, but am stuck on the decision. Choices are:

      Liqui Moly (2332) Leichtlauf High Tech 5W-40
      Liqui Moly (3701) Top Tec 4100 5W-40
      Liqui Moly (2041) Synthoil Premium 5W-40

      I know they are all "good oils" and meet my VW 502.00 spec. I probably couldn't go wrong using any of them, but which one is best for a modified car driven roughly, daily?

      If you look at the various VW tuning sites that sell oil change kits got GTIs. Their liquimoly kits always use Leichtlauf High Tech 5W-40. I've never read anything that explains why people gravitate towards it, but that's what you'll notice most people are putting into their GTIs when they choose to go with Liquimoly.

      For that reason, I decided to go with Leichtlauf High Tech 5W-40 on my GTI.

Even when it doesn't - it still needs it since corrosion protection is one of the main purposes of lubrication. Lubrication is a science - not voodoo. It is measured in microns, milligrams and infinitesimal units - not rabbit ears or dove tails. And it doesn't accept tales - only facts. What your older brother knows about oil - is probably already outdated. The pace of change is fast - and we are here to assist you, to be of service to you. So, give us your questions and your opinions.
      We look forward to hear from all of you.

      How high is the ash content in the Leichtlauf in q percentage? I'm trying to compare that to what Mutol offers. I do this out of curiosity. And because I'm bored right now haha. I also do this so I can give advice to my fellow car enthusiasts. I drive a 2013 GTI Autobahn Edition. Just clicked over 49,000 miles.

      Not all do. I know some tuners prefer Liqui Moly. Whole some tuners prefer Mutol (APR)

      Could you explain a little about what that actually means, and some info on the TUV test protocols please. Thank you.

      Also, where can I get some snake oil to compare?

      If Ceratec is so awesome, why don't any FULLY approved oils come with it as part of their chemistry?

      ....but it's NOT snake oil.

      Many oils come with moly or boron, or both additives. But, not all do. Whether you need an overdose of additives of it or not is for you to decide.

      Another issue is the ash/IVD/intake ports deposits and carbon buildup... some additives feed these issues. When you have 'unknown quality' oil filtration, no OE installed catch cans or PCV filtration, and the automaker refuses to switch to double(MPFI+GDI) injection to avoid intake valve/port/manifold deposits, they have the 'oil as your only defense. So, lets make the oil have the least 'ash' content, lower than typical NOACK, and low TEOST deposits.... as the FIX for the crud issues. Its cheap and the owner pays for maintenance. And, who cares if the camshaft lobes, lifters, fuel pump followers,.... all self destruct with your OE super long life additive free oil.

      Some automakers are stepping over the line when they balance expected component life, warranty expense, owner hassle, owner cost, and the known issues that will occur(hopefully outside their actuaries' warranty calculations).

      Its not like VW has a history of making perfect engines.

      I decided against reduced SAPS oil.

      It's nice that someone picked-up on my info about MB 229.5, nobody else spoke of it, and it puts VW 502 to shame. I hope you make good use of the info, and tip off people on other threads & forums.

      But most 502s are 229.5s as well and posses both appeovals.
