Red face Bardahl Engine Treatment Oil ???

Hello Frends, I Just Bought A Bardahl Engine Treatment Oil For Old Vehicles Run More Than 50000 Kms.

Its Been Mentioned On The Cointainer To Add Min 10 % To Max 20%.

Should It Be 10 % Of The 330 Ml Of Bardahl Oil Cointainer Or 10 % Of The Engine Oil In The Vehicle.

i would recommend the following procedure for best results,,
first confirm how long has it been since your last engine oil /filter change and which oil r u using,,if it is more than 7000 for an ordinary oil or 10000kms using a synthetic oil,then first change the oil and filter ,,preferably use castrol gtx2 20w50,,if its apetrol car and put the entire contents of the bardahl can ie 330 ml,,which will automatically work out to a ratio of approx 10%,,since most cars capacity is 3-4 litres of engine oil,,am assuming its a petrol car ofcourse,,so be careful abou that

It should be 10% of the oil tank capacity of your car.. so if your engine oil capacity is 3 litres then use 2.7 litres of normal recommended grade engine oil and add 330 ml of this can.. !

10% of 8 litres is 800ml ... divided by 330ml = the number of cans you will require for your car...
do not forget to subtract 800ml from 8 litres while adding the oil...

Conclusion:::>> Use 7.2 litres of the standard engine oil and 800 ml of Bardahl additive...

For best performance after flushing the old engine oil.. pour in 400 ml of Bardahl and then pour 7.2 litres of Engine oil and then again pour in the remaining 400 ml of Bardahl!

Default Bardhal effect

I have driven a hero honda with only Bardhal in the engine (a bit of engine oil) .. :-) for 20k Km .. no damage whats so ever ;-) but this was couple of years back (actually when bardhal was introduced tin the Indian Market)

Also used the Bardhal on My Sierra - After effect's less smoke, better protection @ higher RPM's & better FE

Basically all this stuff is solid oil base which has higher thickness (As I say it) which aid in better lubrication due to which some friction noise is reduced and some amount of energy lost in friction is made up for..
I dont know how good Bardahl is but I have used Pyramid engine oil additive in my Zen and it gave quite good outcomes... I am not sure about the side effects like Carbon deposition etc... so please do an analysis before you use it!!

I did notice a smoother engine with STP flush which is similar to bardhal, Also considering that STP costed me Rs.210 and Bardhal is around Rs.900..!

But what is the Bardhal Treatment here being referrd to, You add it to engine Oil and keep running it, won't that reduce the consistency of the oil making it thinner.

Bardahl treatment potion is atleast 5 times more viscous than the normal engine oil, how will that account to thinning the oil??
