Why don't you sign up to race 1/10 this Sunday with that Edo Factory Tuned you got on your website?

You know me being an engine-a-holic and all, that I will have to buy/try one if you pass me.

Hi,

Sorry to bring up a topic that was discussed some time back, but I have a question/problem and hoping for some answers/clarification.

I added only 10mil of klotz to a gallon of my fuel, just to see what the difference (if any) is. I figured that since is only 10ml, it should be negligible. However, I find that the fuel with the added 10ml of klotz benol, the engine now did not rev as freely as before. I had to resort to bigger spur gears to get the engine revs.

However, when I removed button head and backplate, I did notice more 'oil coating' on the engine parts.

Is this (engine no longer free-reving) a side-effect of adding castor (considering its only 10ml to 1 gallon)?

Sam

I don't think .25% would make any difference at all. I bet it wasn't as free running because of atmospheric conditions, making your motor run alittle richer.

I don't understand why everyone wants to play with their fuel. If you don't think your fuel is protecting your engine properly, switch to a different fuel!

Hello Sammies, yes the motor will run a little richer when adding the oil, but you will be able to lean down the motor harder to get back your rpms; you should not have to change gears at all.

The KLOTZ will not break down until 555 degrees and if it does it is only breaking down 15.7cst which is very minimal from when the oil is fresh and new, so no worries. I hope you don't run your engines upove 555, lol.

You will get more smoke then normal but that is letting you know that is getting lubricant. Don’t get me wrong just because it smokes it does not mean your engine cannot overheat because it will, if it is not tuned correctly.

I see you added 10 mil that is only going to change the percent to of percent if that, I could be wrong, but I am not a math wizard so I cannot see the change that you’re talking about, but that’s ok the more info racers put out, is how we all learn. We all are going to think and feel different when we test, so I understand your concerns. . 30- 50mil might change to maybe 2 to 3 percent, I will try to figure that out today and get back with you, because I have never figured that out.

Now if your already runny 12 – 16 percent and adding 50 or 60 mil, then yes the oil contents is high and can change things but will not hurt the engine. I only add lubricant when I am racing in high heat and humidity.

But in the other hand you can run the KLOTZ oil as low as 37 degrees.

Hope I hit on some of the question you’re asking and I will try to get back with percentage later today.
Thanks Billy

Hello Sammies, here is the info, so it took so long,

if you have 1 gallon of fuel and it has 12% or already mixed from factory and you add castor to your 1 gallon of NEW fuel, this is what you would have total.

adding castor will total, so it is not much percent change..
.
10 mil - 12.2%
20 mil - 12.5%
30 mil - 12.7%
40 mil - 12.9%
50 mil - 13.1%
60 mil - 13.4%

Wow, that's a boat load of oil for on road fuel.

My fuel contains 8% of Klotz oils (Benol & Techniplate)

8% or 9% oil is not enough for us here in the USA, that's been proven from a lot of racers and some factory drivers since after the 2011 worlds....

It depends what oil you are using. the one need less than the other for a same lubrication.
