Militec, is it me or?...

Hello folks

Long time no see. I have been away enjoying my boat. The gauge is already marking 435 hours.
80 hours ago I made ny periodic oil change in both engine and Genny. I added 60 ml of Militec-1 to both pieces of machinery and the results have been way beyond expectations.
No smoke
Less noise
Smother runing
More speed with less RPM under the same running conditions

Is it me or some of you have also detected the same when using militec?

Sorry, there's no way any shake oil will do that, unless you put it on the prop.

Today is the first time I hear of Militec-1 or otherwise, I will look into it maybe try some if it is available around here.
I am glad to hear you are enjoying your boat.

Wow I think you found the miracle product, is it also charging the batteries faster, cook the dinner and make the dishes? If yes I will certainly try it.
Ok to be serious, going faster with less RPM, is it a hull paint or oil additive? Or maybe you had your sails up without noticing it so the difference.
The day I will get more speed with an engine turning slower I will go to the nearest church and light a candle!

Thank you. I was going nuts trying to figure out why this sounded so familiar.

Portugese, Its all you! Your wallet is so much lighter that your boat moves faster.
PT Barnum had it all figured out...

You need to put it in the transmission, how else can it change your reduction ratio

For those who think they know all.

Before 60 ml of Militec/liter of oil 1850 RPM 7.2/7,5 knts
Now 1850 7.6/7.9 knts

If you don't believe go and try. And yes, Militec was first made to clean weapons or to grease moving machinery until your glorious army boys started to put it in their cars and trucks. Don't think I am ignorant or want to sell snake oil. Do not under estimate my inteligence. Go and ask your Navy engineers.

There are some funny boys around here now. Maybe is time to go back to the sea or change Forum.

Cheers

Strange, I get the same speed increase too, but in my case I got beans for diner the day before and I used my own propulsion mechanism while farting at the wheel
