Outside of full competition engines, the quality and reliability of oil is likely most important in diesel engines. Those compression ignition beasts are constantly trying to blow the crank right through the bottom of the engine block and especially through the bearings. The only thing that keeps that situation from happening is the oil that at once cushions, lubricates, cools, and preserves those vital engine components that are being worked harder than ever on today’s engines.
Take all that stuff and effectively double it for those guys that are running modified diesel engines and have turned the wicks up on theirs, really making the components and the oil work to keep the engine alive. This is where Prolong and their new 15W-40 diesel oil with the AFMT component that has been the signature of everything from their nitro oil to their normal passenger car stuff. The AFMT is a friction inhibitor that actually bonds to the metallic parts of the engine and forms a microscopic protective layer. Think of it almost like dual protection. Yes, the oil is protecting the engine but the AFMT is making that even more effective.
We’ve got the full scoop on this new sauce from Prolong and it is bad ass stuff.
