Has anyone had their oil analyzed after using the 3 oz. maintenance dose of AutoRX? Just wondering how it affects the properties of the oil.

I don't think many here even know about it.
:) I will be running my first analysis with the LC product soon. Then unfortunately I am going to have to run an interval without it(never got a baseline).


What mileage/ condition and service is your motor? The AutoRX seems to be a great cleaner I had a buddy at work try it in an old beater that was using oil and it stopped in the rinse phase. All my current motors are so new, most products have little imediate affect on them.

Have you read the patent on auto RX? cool stuff.

My engine is in excellent shape, only 22,000 miles on it and I've been running full synthetics in it since about 10,000. I did a full AutoRX treatment on my girlfriend's Montero Sport, engine and tranny. I figured I'd start the maintenance doses on my Taco just to help avoid buildup.

About the patent- are you talking about how the product was developed? For printing presses and other industrial equipment right? It definitely is some pretty cool stuff...

Edit: What's the website for the LC products you are using? I remember you posting some info about a fuel and oil additive that I wanted to try out but can't find the post now.

Your Taco engine is only about 1k miloes less than mine so it should be good to go. This is the sight to the products I am using http://www.lubecontrol.com/lube.htm


I am running the Dyson recomended doses with the LC in My Taco and the 2004 Mitsubishi Outlander my wife uses to rack miles on in her real estate ventures. Both are running on the MC 5w30 blend. The Taco has had the current fill for 5 months but only 2k miles on the fill. The Outlander however already has 3k in 3 months and I will drain it soon and do a 7500 mile run on The Motorcraft oil and the LC to see how it holds up.

The Tacoma will probably get DELO 400 10w30 next fill because I am curious on how this oil will do compared to the MC oil.

The Fuel power has helped the mileage in each vehicle by about 1-2mpg and I like the fact that it is a mild cleaner for the fuel system. I don't have a UOA yet for the LC and FP combo but observations are that the oil stays cleaner longer.
Under the rocker cover that is easily visible in the Outlander it has cleaned up. It had run 7k miles on Castrol GTX(2 fills) before I took possession of it. The GTX is known to darken quickly (not a bad thing just not my preference) and the area I could see was dark and coated. The new oil has been in longer than the previous fill and the area looks cleaner. I don't know if it is the newer formulation of oil or the LC but it is holding up very well in both vehicles.

As a side experiment the lease vehicle (the BMW z-4) is on the dealer provided maintenace program with 15k mile OCI's. I would like to be able to get a sample before I drain the first fill. But hey it's just a lease so I shouldn't care so much :rolleyes:

I wanted to try the Auto RX product but I didn't keep the Montero Sport I had targeted for it. at 37k hot city miles(on bulk dino)it was a good candidate.
