Default Re: Mystery Marvel Oil

Not in the Max, but my Dad uses it a lot in his cars.

Story: 15 or so years ago, my older sister was driving an 84 Dodge Colt back and forth to school. One day as she was leaving school the car just stopped in the parking lot and wouldn't start back. My Das had it towed home and found that it had run out if oil. (My sister never checked it.) We tried multiple things to get it running without success. We even tried turning the crank by hand (with a wrench), but it wouldn't budge. Someone told my Dad about Marvel Mystery Oil (MMO) so we decided to try it. We poured about a quart in and filled the rest up with oil. We towed the car to the top of a hill and pushed it down the other side with another car. After he got up a little speed my Dad popped the clutch (5 speed) and it started up!! It smoked quite a bit but it ran for at least another 50,000 miles after that! He swears by it now.

I've never used SeaFoam but I don't think it is. You don't have to change your oil after putting MMO in. You can put MMO in your gas too.

Marvel Mystery Oil Ha, that stuff is the oldest. I used to sell that when I worked at Checker/Yellow Front years ago. I never did try it, can't say anything good or bad but I we did sell it off the shelf.

I suspect is was the original type of Slick50 or something similar.

SeaFoam can go in your oil, gas tank, or be drawn into the intake too...

I was unaware of that. I've never used it before, I've just seen @chernmax 's vid about it. Why is it necessary to change your oil after using it?

Youre supposed to change the oil after around 100 miles.

As far a MMO goes you use it with your existing oil. It would be your 5th quart. Its not really like Seafoam,its more of a detergent.

Added to GAS:

Marvel Mystery OilŪ lubricates the entire fuel system-fuel pumps, fuel injectors or carburetors and the top portion of the cylinders. These are areas, that by design, motor oil does not reach. Using Marvel Mystery Oil in your fuel extends the life of these vital components by providing them with lubrication that fuel alone does not provide.

• Marvel reduces and prevents varnish and gum build-up, two key contributors to robbing engine performance. When you shut off your engine, a miniscule drop of fuel is left at the tip of the fuel injectors or carburetor jets. This miniscule drop off of fuel then solidifies into a varnish type residue. Over time, the accumulated varnish blocks the openings of the injectors or jets, contributing to lower performance and fuel economy and shorter life of these components.

• Spark plug life is also extended by using Marvel in your fuel. It creates a cleaner burning cylinder environment that reduces carbon build-up on spark plugs resulting in better firing plugs that increase performance and durability.

• In addition, Marvel Mystery OilŪ improves fuel mileage by reducing internal friction in the engine.

• Marvel should be used in the fuel at every fill-up. Use 4 ounces for every 10 gallons of fuel.


Added to Engine Oil

Marvel should be added to your engine oil at every oil change. In a traditional automobile engine with a 5 quart oil capacity, simply replace one of the engine oil quarts with a quart of Marvel. For your convenience, MM13R is the quart size of Marvel Mystery OilŪ and can be found at most automotive parts and supply retailers and mass merchants. Marvel is also safe and effective to use with synthetic and synthetic-blend motor oils.
When added to engine oil, Marvel reduces and prevents valve sticking and clatter by breaking down harmful deposits of carbon and sludge. Oftentimes, valve sticking can be identified by a "ticking" sound coming from the engine compartment when the engine is running. This ticking sound will increase and decrease with the speed of the engine.
Marvel fortifies the properties of motor oil, both traditional and synthetic. Marvel prevents oil breakdown caused by extreme temperatures. In addition, Marvel promotes easier cold weather starting with its extremely low pour point of (-65) Fahrenheit and ability to eliminate oil's tendency to congeal at low temperatures.
Sludge build-up in newer and older engines can result in lower performance and life expectancy. Marvel will prevent sludge build-up from occurring in new engines and removes sludge from older engines. In newer engines, Marvel protects against scoring or seizing and creates a highly polished, wear resistant finish on engine surfaces. Your new engine will remain clean and your older engine will thank you for cleaning the insides.

Well,technically a lubricant....yes. I think its selling point is that it helps keep your motor clean. Gets all the deposits off the key areas.
