BORPower additive?

Anyone of you have tested this additive?
Borpower Shop

I read from some local magazine that it uses nanoparticle technology and all fancy words, but that what caught my attention, was that it says it raises the power up to 10% more and FE up to 15% more, because it reduces the friction greatly.

Because this was mentioned on a good magazine, this caught my attention. Else i would just have ignored it.

So what are your thoughts :D

It claims to reduce friction.

It can only raise power by 10% if engines now waste at least 10% of their power to friction at WOT. Which is not the case for almost any engine.
It can only raise fuel efficiency by 15% if engines without it waste at least 15% to friction under light load. Don't think so.

Their claims are extraordinary, but there is no scientific proof for that.
They do provide an angry looking cat and a lot of boll power though.

Wikipedia makes no mention of boron in lubrication appliances, but boron is used in some abrasive materials. Hmmm. Something rhymes.

I got an thought that it might already be in some oils and they are just advertising an old thing as new? But well, i will research that tomorrow. I'll go to sleep :)

A Boron compound is used in some oils as part of the detergent package.

Anything with "nano" in it is bound to be good! :thumbup:

Here's a Nanotemplate.

Yay! Thanks, I like it; it's good.

Someone in India claimed to have mixed boric acid powder into engine oil, after grinding it down very fine, and got good results. I can't remember now where I read that.
Inspired by that, I got some boric acid and put it in my car's differential and wheel bearings. with no noticeable results. I never tried putting it in engine oil though.

is this stuff an 'automotive' version/relation to those special, world-reknown, coffee beans that pass through monkeys digestion systems before becoming your morning brew?

That's Kopi Luwak.


RedDevil 08-09-2013 05:42 AM

And it is a civet cat, not a monkey that the beans pass through. Don't know what FE it gets from the beans.

Quezacotl 08-09-2013 06:18 AM

Yea.. I'm pretty sure i wont test this additive :D
