I found very little on this product in the usual forums. It looks like it has some interesting science behind it. I have contacted a friend whose family owns a auto repair shop in order to perform some before and after tests - compression, emissions, mpg, etc. Any other tests you recommend?

And yes, I am very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very wary of crankcase additives. But there are a lot of scientists in the former USSR who can't wait to use some of their discoveries under the communist system to become wealthy capitalists. I watch that part of the world for unrealized technologies.

I think i will stick with my Seafoam.

That stuff looks like a ProLong/Slick50/Cod Liver Oil treatment... Don't bother...

Seafoam on the other hand works, and has been proven to work.
This is what another guy say about it on one of my other forums.

Looks like Redline did a test on it.

5. CONCLUSION
After application of XADO technology on 1987 TOYOTA pickup truck we confirm the
following:
 Gas consumption has dropped by 12 %
 Engine runs smoother and with less noise
 Oil burning has decreased
 Vehicle maximal speed on equal portion of highway in the 5-th gear has increased from 130 km/ hour to 155 km / hour. That indirectly indicates an 16 % increase in engine power and reduction in losses due to lower friction in transmissions

Before---90 m.p.h. at 4500 r.p.m.
After---99 m.p.h. at 4500 r.p.m.
Is this even possible? I can understand more power available at a specific rpm, but a change in speed at the same rpm without altering a gear ratio, final drive or tire size?
Maybe I'm missing something...

Thats what im saying. It doesnt matter how much power you have in a car, it doesnt change speed at an RPM. Someone is leading you guys on.

Oh, wait. That is just some numbnuts with the CRX. I think it speaks more to his intelligence than that of Xado. The Redline test was more objective though it still had "feels like" in it.

I have been researching more and this stuff is used all over the world in many commercial fleets. I would not be so quick to dismiss it as snake oil. If anyone has a beater that has low compression, it would be cool if they could give it a shot.

Uh, yeah...it creates a wormhole from your wallet to their bank account
Hey! How about trying it on that AWD civic you got? Or did you scrap that project?

I've got a Z6 with rod knock and a dead hole. I think that would be the test.
Send me some and I'll run a bunch of before and afters and let you know waz up! 8)

One of the more objective 'tests' I read on Xado found that if you disassemble a component after it has been treated, you may re-develop issues once re-assembled. (Because of the way Xado fills in the imperfections in the moving parts.)

What's a "dead hole"?

I saw that. It makes sense as the heat and friction builds up the mting surfaces. My only concern is that I would want to know how much buildup occurs elsewhere when you don't have two surfaces together. Does it build up at all or does it continue to build up slowly over time. You wouldn't want ongoing buildup elsewhere.

Dead hole = no compression.

as for the ongoing/unwanted buildup concern. They only vaguely imply that it's the heat and friction from metal-metal contact that will 'activate' the 'rebuilding' process. Definitely a good question, though, cause I haven't seen that issue addressed in their information.
