Duane, I am not surprised you jumped in the middle of this. But that is okay. As far as the test the Navy ran, Militec-1 was tested in various applications, including use on Nuclear Subs. I could be wrong, but you give the impression that you know little or nothing about Government testing programs for various products. I do. I was an Air Force inventory management specialist for over 5 years. Even after I retrained and became a radio and TV broadcaster, I was still an equipment account custodian on and off for over 14 years and after I retired, I place a product in an Air Force test program. The requirements are stringent and a lot of squares have to be checked off before a National Federal Stock Number is assigned. That means any government agency can order the product. While GM does not talk about Militec-1 in their vehicles, they do use it to lubricate plant machinery, as well as several other corporations...I don't mind if someone does a some research and comes to a valid conclusion, but don't just start blowing smoke because you feel like it...You see. I don't need you or Justin to validate my experiences, opinions or beliefs... Ken Washington 87 9000S 87 900S 83 900T
