"now you too can idle %30 faster!"

which in a modern car @stoic means %30 more fuel used at idle Unless your unseeable but definately round (and non-clustered) diamonds also magically improve volumetric efficiency...

car would just reduce idle air control valve setting and still idle at same RPM. Consumption would likely be about the same though as at idle the engine is mostly overcoming the load of pumping past a throttle plate. For the steam engine though the faster idle does mean more consumption/unit of time to idle, unless the operator throttled back. Still fails to equate idle speed to fuel consumption doing work.

Yes, but I wasn't expecting our diamondlube friend to comprehend all that

WOW, you must have bumped your head into the boilerplate, hard.

The fuel (fool) is the steam pressure that remains constant and the "steam engine" lost friction causing it to rotate 30% faster. Each test can show completely different attributes of friction loss, and one single test proves nothing by itself.

Let me make that a little clearer for you, as long as the steam pressure in a steam engine remains constant, other variables must be responsible for changes in RMP. Did you bother to notice the absence of 90% of the metal on metal noise post treatment, and the pronounced sound of steam leaving the valve post treatment even though the pressure remained constant. The reduction of sound translates DIRECTLY into power saved by factors no longer required to make that sound, otherwise known as increased efficiency.

In the case of Lucas, it's use would slow the RPM of this system due to increased viscosity even though sound MAY decrease, it does nothing to increase efficiency by thickening the oil.

Hack. did you ever hear of an Automatic Idle Adjuster? WOW, you are more than just a car nut.

nobody here gives a damn about steam engines, or bridge bearings, %30 mpg improvement based on that is beyond dishonest. Your guy measured 1.9% mpg improvement, retract ALL your mpg claims or you are a bold faced lying sack of crap.

Your intelligence is only exceeded by the lack of it that you display.
