You can use it for After-Run oil, and also for oiling your air filter. You probably can add it to your nitro fuel in small amounts, but I'm not sure if anyone has. As with all petroleum based substances there is a possiblity of cancer if your exposed to it for long periods of time. So don't use it for body oil.

Marvel works great as a bearing and bushing oil, as after-run oil and for just about any general purpose oil application.

I wouldn't add it to your fuel, although if you do let us know what happens. . . your fuel already has oil in it.

Marvel is good stuff, maynard!

And since it's colored RED, it just might have some UV blocking properties. . . (red doesnt' let blue through) . . . . (ONLY KIDDING, don't slather yourself with the stuff and lay out naked. . .ick!)

In '00, when i first ran nitro, someone told me to put a single drop of the Hobbico after run oil into a full pit bottle, and shake it up for the first couple runs.

I did it, It didnt hurt anything.. at the same time, i doubt it helped anything either.

Boomer - Why not? I mean... all the girls love a guy covered in after-run oil.

Default The Mystery of Marvel Oil

Guys;

In my Early days of Nitro, I tried putting some MM oil in with the Fuel. Added Oil, better lubrication. This made my Motor run MUCH hotter, drain the Tank, put fresh fuel, everything back to normal.

You can use it for Filter Oil, but I find the Associated Oil lasts much longer and is Stickier to help trap the dust particles. If the Foam gets too dry, fine dust particles can actually migrate through the foam and get inside your engine. (This is BAD)

As for a Suntan lotion, STP stays on better!
