WHAT IS MICROLON®?
Microlon® is an Engine Metal Treatment used by people in a variety of professions and is now offered to the average consumer. Tests conducted by Caterpillar showed an estimated Increase in the Engine life of between 20% and 40%. In addition, Fuel consumption immediately dropped 10% while providing the same Horsepower. Caterpillar Diesel Engines also states, “We do know for certain that Microlon does not damage the Engine.”
Positive results from Microlon Engine Treatment are far-reaching. See what those who rely on Microlon® Engine Treatment say about its Performance!

“Based on the data submitted and tests witnessed by our Kansas City Engineering and Manufacturing District Office personnel, “Microlon” is considered satisfactory for use in aircraft Engines having up to 1,000 cubic inches displacement.
“This acceptance is based on the test results showing no detrimental effects on the test Engine, turbo supercharger, etc.”

From Cullen Detroit Diesel Allison Limited
Test data was gathered at the Kamloops branch of Cullen Detroit Diesel Allison Limited:
On March 11, 1980, the test engine was run for 2.5 hours with no oil in the crankcase. it should be noted that the water temperature rose only 3 degrees above the after-treatment averag; still 0.5 degree lower than the before-treatment averate. The compression on all four cylinders is also still above the before-treatment results. After replacing the oil, all factors returned to the after-treatment values. In no way do we recommend running an engine without oil, however this is a dramatic demonstration of the protectinve dry lubricating film provided with Microlon is used in equipment.
From the City Public Transportation — Maintenance Department, Austin, Texas
“From initial Treatment with Microlon to the last available figures, Oil consumption averages have moved from an untreated 286 MPQ (Miles per Quart) to a treated 1075 MPQ average. It reflects a savings of 73.39% in Oil usage.” “Treated bus #1419’s Fuel consumption was checked against ten other 1100 series [Laidlaw] busses. July Fuel records indicated an aggregate, averaged rate of 3.7 MPG (Miles per Gallon) while (bus) #1419 averaged 4.4 MPG for an indicated savings of 18.92%.”
“Fuel consumption with Microlon Treatment compared to equal number without Microlon Treatment by weight, by scale and by meter; average Increase in MPG was 27.81% with Microlon treated busses compared to those without Microlon Treatment.”
“Operating temperatures of Oil declined from 197° F., to 193° and water temperatures declined from 170° to 165° F. in those buses treated with Microlon.”

In Texas, the School District of Pharr-San Juan-Alamon Used Microlon in Their Diesel Bus Engines
“The District’s decision to use Microlon in the buses has saved more than 1/3 of our fuel budget, and that’s a lot of money for our district that is now being used for the children.”

From Automated Custom Systems, Inc., Orange, CA – Environmental Protection Agency, 511 Test Program: One time Engine Treatment
“Attached are the summary data sheets covering the two Vehicles tested per the E.P.A. 511 Test Program. Both Vehicles were processed identically …” “On the two Vehicles tested, Microlon Engine Treatment produced an Increase in Fuel Economy with a general reduction in Vehicle Emissions as tested by the United States Environmental Protection Agency published Federal Register.”

“… I believe I can state that the application of this product [Microlon] in industry will result in the most significant gains in overall productivity since the introduction of carbide tooling.”
“The baseline philosophy of various French and other European corporations with their on-going applications of Microlon … in virtually all of their machine tools … is a philosophy that can be anticipated to be broadly applied throughout the U.S. and Canadian industry.”
“There will certainly be some problems in getting “less than progressive” companies to “share the trade secret” of the application of Microlon, but proper exposure and marketing within the industry should easily overcome this very slight shortcoming.

From Porsche AG by the VW Emission Lab, Woodland Hills, California
A test of the effects of Microlon was conducted on a Porsche 928 for Porsche AG. The following results were obtained:
|10,698 Miles||11,705||1097 Miles|
|HC .481 PPM||.287 PPM||reduced 40.3%|
|CO 2.66%||1.11%||reduced 62.6%|
|NOX 1.02 PPM||0.82 PPM||reduced 20.0%|
|Mileage 13.3 MPG||14.6 MPG||increased 9.8%|
Porsche said the improvements shown were significant. Other data not related to the Microlon results on this test is privileged information. If verification of this test is necessary, it can be obtained form Porsche AG in Culver City, California.

From McAllen Independent School District
In December 2004, MICROLON Metal Treatment lubricants were added to eight school buses equipped with a Cummins 5.9 diesel engine. Year of vehicle, mileage, and date when product was added were documented and certified mechanics followed the installation instructions supplied in every box. Transportation Department shop supervisor Felipe Pena evaluated the information gathered in late December and compared it with the data collected in late January 2005. The information revealed that there has been a 28% total savings in fuel mileage.

“Five to seven miles of full throttle at Bonneville Salt Flats destroys dozens of Engines per year. Survival is very difficult. We race with no back-up Engines. We survive. We break records. We thank Microlon.”
