Motorcycle race teams such as Valerie Thompson Racing, Worlds Fastest Woman ( over 300 mph ) and auto racing teams such as NHRA Nitro Funny Car, Chris Davis, Dan Dothsuk Pro Modified owner, Mike at MRL performance, Mike Cope Racing, KC Gager at BRG Racing, and car enthusiasts want the best protection possible for their equipment, calling for rugged oils that exhibit high temperature deposit control additives. The Racing Additives Team has researched, tested and offers the best Synthetic Motor Oils and Additives which are specially formulated with the best synthetic base stocks and high performance additives to provide tough lubricating protection for all racing and street engines. The BestLine Engine Oil additive works very well with other oils such as Redline, Royal Purple and Mobile 1 and turn racing or conventional oils into a very high performance oil.
Why Change the Engine Oil?
We get asked this all the time so I thought it might be a good time to explain whats going on in the engine / crankcase.
Things that can go very wrong.
1. Moisture in the crankcase can turn acidic causing pitting and excessive mechanical wear over time. If you live in a humid environment this can be a big factor in how often to change the oil.
2. Its not the necessarily the amount you drive so much as it is the way or conditions you drive in. Hot temperatures, humidity, hill climbs, traffic and towing all contribute to the soot, ash, metal particulates and the breakdown of the critical viscosity of the oil.
See more below about how often to change the oil:
When asked, you may hear answers such as every 3000, 5000 or 7500 miles, or when the vehicle's oil monitor indicates that this service is necessary. It is no wonder consumers are confused. The simplest answer... well, there is no simple answer! In fact, there is no interval that applies to most vehicles.
AMRA/MAP has been examining this question for some time. Read on to find out what we feel every motorist needs to know about this subject.
The engine serves as the heart of your vehicle, so changing its oil based on the manufacturer's recommendation is perhaps the single most important thing that you can do to keep your vehicle's engine running longer. However, you must read these recommendations closely to determine the correct interval; the interval that matches your vehicle's operating conditions and your driving habits.
The normal interval listed in the owner's manual applies to vehicles driven under ideal conditions. While you may consider your driving habits and operating conditions quite normal, read the fine print. Some exceptions to normal driving include:
Frequent short trips (less than 10 miles, especially during cold weather)
Stop-and-go city traffic driving
Driving in dusty conditions, on gravel roads, etc.
Driving at sustained highway speeds during hot weather
Diesel or turbocharged engine
These conditions commonly appear in the description of severe service driving.
AMRA/MAP advises that you read your owner's manual to locate the correct interval.
What about the 3000 mile oil change myth?
Consider these facts:
Oil requires complex additives and detergents to help prevent corrosion and sludge buildup
Additives allow oil to flow freely at extremely cold temperatures while also providing protection under extremely hot temperatures
Testing shows that aer 3000 miles the oil itself still lubricates, but the depletion of critical additives may no longer allow the oil to offer the same protection and benefits
Longer intervals may benefit the environment, but perhaps at the expense of engine life
Re-refined oils offer an alternative for motorists with concerns about the environment
Re-refined oils use the remaining lubricating qualities of used oil, and replenish the depleted additives to create oils that meet the quality of new oil
Your driving type or vehicle usage may affect the maintenance intervals below.
You should follow the manufacturer's service schedule that best matches your vehicle's operating conditions.
Bottom line is that BestLine with its 52 worldwide patents prove that it protects the engine over these severe driving conditions and greatly reduces the tendency for the oil to become acidic. Increasing the life of the critical engine components is what we do best.
Other videos that show why BestLine is the very best.
Showing a BMW standing coin test on the engine while its running. The bestline engine treatment additive makes the engine run so smooth the coin won't tip over. Now ask yourself, does your engine run that smooth??? my engine has 186k plus miles on it and its still going stronger, smoother and quieter . thanks bestline...
What Harry said June 8th 2016: Owner of the Motorcycle training institute in Red Bluff CA.
I own 20 training motorcycles. As you can imagine, they get their fair share of abuse. Idling, numerous starts and stops, stalling, quick clutch releases at times, over-revving, shifting without the clutch disengaged, etc.
Looking for real world protection, I have tried many additives over the last 20 years. Slick 50, Duralube, Lucas oil, STP, Amsoil, Johnsen’s, the list goes on. Never noticed any difference. Then I came across BestLine. Saw the information on the web, watched some videos and thought it was just another false claim. Until this:
I purchased a few bottles of BestLine to try in my boat (1982 Mercruiser 140) that had a knocking sound. Changed the oil, added the recommended 10% and in less than 5 minutes the knock was gone. Completely. Idles much better. Impressive.
This sparked my interest. I decided to do an experiment on a training motorcycle we no longer use anymore due to aesthetics (1990 Honda CB 125T). This training motorcycle has over 10,000 parking lot miles on it and a stock clutch. No engine repair ever. I added approximately 15% BestLine Engine Treatment, added oil to the full mark and ran it on the center stand for about 30 minutes while in second gear. I then aired up the tires, took it out for a test ride. I immediately noticed a smoother solid engagement of the clutch. It ran great!
Due to my sheer morbid curiosity, I wanted to see if the CB125T would last without oil. I drained the oil, and kept the engine on and running without the drain plug in. The bike was again on the center stand in second gear. With an hour meter attached, it ran for 26+ hours. The reason it stopped running is because it ran out of gas. I’m Sold!
On April 10th 2016 I added 15% BestLine in a 2005 Honda CB250 Nighthawk training motorcycle. It now has 758 miles on the oil. The oil is still gold in color. Although these are great running motorcycles, it idles smoother, shifts smoother and runs quieter.
I will not only run BestLine Engine Treatment in all my training motorcycles, but in my car, truck and personal motorcycles. If BestLine Engine Treatment isn’t in your oil, you are not caring for your engine. Period.
Stand by for a YouTube experiment as soon as I get help with video. I’ll SHOW proof.
Thanks to the staff at BestLine that answered all my questions.

My 2012 KIA SERENTO SX V6 gets better gas mileage plus revs better, it has 276 HP but since I added 32 oz of BestLine engine treatment to my oil its feels like it has 300 hp!

I have been using bestline lubricants in my car, truck and motorcycle for the past year and I am proud to say I am a believer. My vehicles run smoother and shift effortlessly, no stalling, or slippage of gears. I will continue my patronage of this product and company for the foreseeable future.

Bestline oil additive has worked great to clean out my engines, as well as adding excellent wear protection. I use it for my own engines, and for my customer's engines.

I have been using your (BestLine) oil additive in my 49cc Chinese clone scooter from day one. Because this is my ONLY form of transportation, I have put several thousand miles on it without any problems. The motor’s compression is like new and there’s been no problems whatsoever. I am so glad that I found you guys… Thank you for making a great product.

Thanks Bestline for your great products. Have been using the engine treatment and drive train treatment in my 96 Ford Ranger now for about 2 years. The engine has 248,000 miles on it runs great . I know the Bestline has really helped to really clean up my engine over the last few years. I can really feel the performance of the engine with the Bestline added. Can't afford a new vehicle now so I know with the help of Bestline my Ranger could see 400,000 Plus
