I researched online and got interested in Liqui Moly products. Too bad nobody did any thorough review on it yet, so I took my chances with one. I was thinking of getting the Toptec fully syn, but decided against it as I am interested in the Mos2 additive. Thus, I found the Mos2 leichtlauf 10w40 oil with the Mos2 pre-added.

I've been using fully-syns before, and I must admit - I got used to the appearance of such motor oil. What I'm talking about is the 'clear' looking new motor oils, be it mineral, semi-, or fully-syn.

Mos2 leichtlauf 10w40 however, caught me by surprise - it is dark gray in color, and it's not clear. It's slightly 'cloudy' due to the added Mos2 additive. The service centre peeps were surprised too.

After pouring it in, I noticed the immediate effect on the first start - upon ignition, the engine cranks to start smoother, and somehow a hair quieter. Subsequent test drives proved that the engine felt 'silky', and not so harsh even when I revved hard. Overall, I love the feeling. The car felt lighter to accelerate, and smoother when cruising. Since I travel the highway daily, I can consistently gauge any improvements on Fuel Economy. Overall, I get slightly better fuel economy.

To deal with any possible placebo effect, I handed the car to my friend, who drove a similar car. We're always benchmarking each other's car, and he knew my car pretty well too. After a quick spin, he informed that the engine runs smoother throughout the range of the revs. The effect was almost like running a higher compression than before. After Googling around, I found out that Mos2 was designed to as micro-sealants, to effectively 'seal' microscopic gaps between the cylinder wall and the piston ring, thus eliminating friction and preserving compression as a bonus.

I'm also eager to test Liqui Moly's Ceratec additive, but when my friend poured a can into his Caldina, I was surprised yet again. It looked exactly like teh tarik. I can't comment much other than appearance, since I haven't used it before.

P/S: My engine is the notoriously noisy, thirsty SP4H CPS.

hi bro,

i used the engine oil on my toyota hilux vigo kun 2.5. The diesel "tappet" sounds is softer. Before i was using castrol 15w40 and the sound is a killer.

Hope my experience helps.

Regards.

@Arezfei you should really try the ceretac.. pour in my new bmw previously got this diesel very harsh sound can even hear from cabin..after 1 day of pour in..it works like magic! now i barely even hear the engine even if im standing outside near the car..

for the oil yes ive tried on 2000 waja and 2000 iswara..but i did the lambda flush before head..i cant comment on waja brother's car but i didnt drove for 1 time 50% smoother in term of gliding the car..but for iswara now the car glide even faster and very ringan..

you should try its worth your money for that price

This MOS2 10w40 is semi-type, it could providing you the amazing smoothness to your engine which could hardly find among this price range smile.gif It's consider as the no.1 popular brand in Germany, where Merz, Bimmers, Volkswagens are all around!

He's already using both qmax and liqui moly lol


Added on July 28, 2011, 8:23 pmThe special thing about Liqui-moly's 10w30 and 10w40 is the MOS2 additive that's blended inside the oil, giving you optimum performance and protection.

Don't be surprised the Synthoil 5w40 gets outperformed by the semi 10w40. Proven

I found that MOS2 leichtlauf 4100 10W30 (Semi Synthetic) 4L is the best for my car! Fits the recommended weight perfectly as per in the manual. I pay special attention to this as the CPS activator requires light-weight oil to perform at its optimum. I poured in the Ceratec as well..and I believe that the difference will be felt more if the engine oil does not already have the Mos2 additive.

The Mos2 does work. I admit that the last service, the Continental shop in Seksyen 7 Bangi has sold out, so I poured in HKS Fully Syn..Super NA Reponse 10W-38 methinks, it's good and smooth, but I miss the silkiness of the LiquiMoly.
