What makes you say that it doesn't look like my product?

I have a bag of 1.5ml ($7) samples. left over from ShotShow 2008 that I will be happy to ship out so you can test it on a gun or two. Hit my paypal account with $3 to cover shipping and I will send anyone that wants one, one. Otherwise read the gun tests report on diamondlube.com to see what they said after testing it for a year.

We would rather see reviews posted in a place that is perceived to be impartial. The manufacturers website is not good enough for us. We want to see before and after MPG data over enough miles to be significant, along with accounting for wind, temperature, and routes.

Like this: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...ery-11445.html. ABA testing is impractical with your product, but well documented AB testing will clearly show a 5% improvement in mileage.

Dip your projectiles in it and test the difference in velocity with a chronograph.

Unfortunately, that is not a good test. Just like when using Molly to coat a bullet, the velocity slows down. This is because the bullet slides too easily and doesn't build up enough pressure behind it. It is common to add more grains of powder in order to bring the velocity backup to the uncoated bullets speed. Fouling and barrel wear however is kept to a minimum when using a coating like molly. I would assume that this would work in the same manner.

No, you're just too stupid to understand the science behind it!

Here's my offer. Give me a Diamond Lube kit for my truck. I'll test it for a year (summer 2014 and winter 2014/2015) and add the results to my build thread: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...yon-17070.html. A 3% improvement will show up, a 5% improvement will jump out. Slightly over 10% will get me the 40 MPG summer mileage that I would really like to get.

If it gives me 5% MPG improvement, I'll then pay you double your current list price. Put up or shut up.

. . . looked like a consumer level package (blister pack, etc. ) while the transport packaging is industrial. The Diamond Lube trade name slipped me.

I am trying to think up a test that can make use of such a small amount and be relevant to what we do here on Ecomodder.

It seems this could be tested on an air cooled lawn mower engine. I think it would easy to test.
1: Before & after torque required to turn motor with & without plug.
2: Measure idle Rpm before & after
3: measure Oil temp before & after
4: measure head temperature before & after


Just an idea to throw out there.
