MMO is a light mineral oil with some red colouring and a small amount of oil of wintergreen (like some chewing gum).  A small amount shouldn't hurt anything, and might even help to lubricate high pressure mechanical injection pumps, but too much would lower the effective octane rating of the fuel.
  KEVIN:  Did you do any research with independent evaluators on these two items, TOP TIER and MMO?  If so, I'm sure we all would like to be informed about the aspects of what was concluded.  EAM

 Trust me on this one. Kevin has researched it.

It's not available here in the Great White North but is available at Wal-mart in the U.S. for $16.00 a gallon.
Next time I go to the outlet mall in Niagara Falls N. Y. I'll check it out. There's a huge Wal-mart next door.

About the only time we would get to the US is if we went to the casino in Niagara Falls NY but because our dollar is almost worthless
compared to the US dollar it costs us probably 25% more to shop in the US so it's just not worth the bother anymore.
If we should happen to go over I will certainly check MMO.

 Has anyone ever done tests and published real numbers? Is there a real measureable benefit?

Pam was saying yesterday that Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls N Y is having a special room price sale until the middle of April.
Sometime in the next week or two we will head over for a couple of nights. There is an Auto Zone store nearby and the Factory Outlet
Mall just down the road has a Wal-mart store so I will buy some of this magic potion, Marvel Mystery Oil, and bring it back along with
any information pamphlets the store may have. I won't use it but will bring it with me to our first club outing for further investigation.

 RON:  Be certain you buy the MMO at Wal-mart for the $3.88 per "QUART", Autozone may be twice the price.  I can't understand since you are going to buy it why not try it in your engines.  In spite of what was said herein this format this product has been around since 1923 used by millions since then and never any complaints whatsoever.  I just started using it  about four months ago in four of my cars and I know and recognize the improvement it has done to the sound and smoothness of the engines.  Do not relate this product to the scams that were out there for two or three years; remember since 1923, that's ninety-five years it's been around and is still selling as strong as ever.  Could it be so many millions of us have been fooled?  Just try it RON and see for yourself, it cannot hurt your engines.  EAM

I'm going get a couple of quarts. I'll try one in Pam's '15 Chev Malibu. She has probably a 50 mile commute every day and is always concerned about how
much gas she uses each week. She drives only at the speed limit, never does a fast getaway from a stoplight etc. Her car has just a little 4 pot engine that 
shuts down when you brake at a stoplight. I've heard her say that she can make a tank of gas to last a little more than a week so we'll see if MMO will
improve on that. Myself, I don't drive that much now that I'm retired so I don't care what my gas mileage is. I'm out pretty much every day but my trips
are usually short ones of maybe 5-10 miles, if that. I can usually get a little over a month from tank of gas in my '09 Dodge Caliber.

Ron, be extra sure that the Malibu does not require Dexos certified oil before you put in MMO. Or make sure MMO meets Dexos requirements. Newer GM engines need a certain level of hydraulic properties to run properly and not all oils meet this.

 JON:  That's an excellent suggestion and I fully agree. Another thought would be to call the MMO home office or customer service; telephone number should be on the bottle or you should be able to get it through Google or Bing. Remember, they are a reputable company or they wouldn't have been around for the last 95 years selling MMO.  EAM

No  I haven't. We haven't been to the U S in a couple of years because of the $ exchange rate. Doing a day
trip just isn't worth the bother anymore. However, later this year we plan on driving to St Pete Beach in
Florida where we will stay for a month's vacation. I will certainly be sure to pick some up on the way back.

  RON:  Be certain you use it in your gas all the way home from Florida when you return and you should  see an improvement in the feel of the engine both idling and movement; remember, this has been in use by millions of us car drivers since 1923 and still going strong.  EAM

 I am still not convinced MMO has any real benefit. I want to see documented results.

I'm don't really put much store in oil and fuel additives. I've used STP and Lucas treatments in the past and never noticed any difference
in performance or gas mileage, but I will try your MMO in the gas for the entire trip, there and back, and we'll see what the results will be,
if any. I will buy enough to use in my '85 Eldorado too. That slug could always use some get up and go.
I would love to do this trip in the Eldorado, that's where any performance additives might show what they can do but Pam doesn't trust
it to get there and back without a breakdown and the way that thing uses gas the fuel cost is too scary to think about.
