Produced by a well-known manufacturer, the Liqui Moly Molygen New Generation is highly stable and low-vis due to its use of atypical base oils combined with a set of specialized additives and special Moligen’s component.
This interesting formula has allowed to get a lightweight, with excellent performance of autooil, recommended for use throughout the year.
Do not forget about its ability to significantly reduce the force of friction, increase the life of the engine, effectively fight the resulting sediments, increase fuel efficiency. The company mainly recommends its products for cars of American and Japanese origin.
The Physical and Chemical Properties of Liqui Moly Molygen New Generation
Before you make a final choice, you need to familiarize yourself with the characteristics stated by the manufacturer (by the way, they are fully true):
|Elm (40 0C)
|62.7 mm sq/s
|81 mm sq/s
|99.5 mm sq/s
|Density (15 0C)
|0.852 g/cm cube.
|0.855 g/cm cube.
|0.867 g/cm cube.
|Elm (100 0C)
|10.7 mm sq/s
|14 mm sq/s
|14.5 mm sq/s
|Flash in the open crucible (0C)
As you can see, some numbers have significant differences and depend on the viscous class.
The Liqui Moly MolyGen New Generation motor oil is made using a special technology bearing the abbreviated name MFC — its performance is realized thanks to the doping of the outer layer of work parts of the DVS, tungsten ions and molybdenum.
This process significantly improves the strength of the parts, which is due to the ability to protect the engine from wear and tear.
Recommendations for use
The product is best for «Japanese» or «Americans» engines, both diesel and gasoline. The oil is compatible with forced air supply systems (including models equipped with intercoolers), meets the stringent requirements of modern engines, allows to increase intervals between replacements.
Before buying should be sure to clarify the conditions of the manufacturer of his car, mixing with similar lubricants is allowed, but the best effect will be achieved only in its purest form.
Properties, tolerances, certificates of compliance
Among the positives of Liqui Moly Molygen New Generation are:
- Soft engine work;
- Excellent lubricating of working parts in a wide temperature frame;
- The best protection against wear;
- Excellent cleansing ability;
- The necessary checks and tests on turbocharged motors and powertrains equipped with catalysts have been passed;
- The prompt flow of lubricant to the working parts;
- A well-designed formula that improves friction and wear reduction;
- A high level of oxidation resistance;
- Fuel economy;
- Allows mixing with other oils.
It has tolerances from such eminent car manufacturers as: Honda, Mitsubishi, Kia, Subaru, Mazda, Chrysler, Nissan, GM, Suzuki, Daihatsu, Hyundai, Isuzu, Toyota, Ford.
Complies with the stringent requirements of ILS AC GF-5, API SN/CF.
Motor oil test
Liqui Moli Moligen New Generation took part in an interesting test to find out whether it can and how to increase the power of the DVS.
Something funny situation is observed at the moment: on the one hand, automakers specifically reduce the resource of motors in their «bait» purposes, on the other — companies producing motor oils, trying to achieve the opposite effect. Their task is to develop viable formulas that can actually increase the resource, to form reliable protective films of engine parts.
Another interesting point in the production of powertrains is to increase power for every kilogram of mass. All these works require to reduce gaps and produce additional force units.
To combat this problem, and there was a class of energy-saving oils W30. Updated formulas are also regularly released, with additive kits (special attention is paid to anti-friction).
In the lubricants in question there is an interesting additive based on tungsten and molybdenum, it is characterized by the ability to reduce the force of friction and wear of the motor as much as 30%, while not contradicting the demands of automakers.
The additive is able to align the smallest irregularities of parts and structure surfaces with its constituent components (tungsten and molybdenus). Thus, in combination with the doping action of tungsten, a powerful protective layer is created, which is able to preserve its properties for up to 50,000 years. Km.
So, after checking a couple of frictions in the laboratory, conclusions were drawn about both the significant reduction of friction and temperature in this pair, which plays an important role for modern engines.
In addition, there is an activation of additives in loaded working conditions, detergent properties are achieved by the impossibility of settling sediments on working parts, increasing resistance to corrosion.
The oil was tested by the Germans on a special device that simulates friction, similar to the piston ring area, and confirmed a real reduction in wear by 30%. An additional test now covered was conducted to verify these results.
For the test was to take a simple car Skoda Octavia, which has an engine of 105 «horses» and a volume of 1.6 liters, produced in 2008, at the time of the inspection mileage was 90,000. Km. This car replaced the oil on the Molygen New Generation and watched how it would affect the power of the engine. A specialized stand measuring this parameter on wheels was used to check.
During the tests, there was a slight increase in torque, more noticeable in the area of working turnover, in which the car works most of the time (2-4 thousand. about.).
However, experts do not consider these figures significant, and allow them to appear as a result of the difference in air temperature and composition of the mixture, but these shortcomings tried to take into account, refueling at the same station, and the test was conducted at a higher temperature Air.
By the way, Moligen oil was compared with another sample of Liqui Moly — Leichtlauf High Tech, so expect a special difference and do not, because they are very similar in properties.
The conclusions that have been made speak about the advantages of this series of automas in terms of protective and anti-friction properties, increasing the life of the DVS, reducing fuel consumption, and increasing power can be considered as a nice bonus, which, the driver may not feel it, but will always be able to be confident in the reliable protection of its engine in any modes of operation.
