BestLine has been granted a license from the American Petroleum Institute (API)
to produce and sell its own energy conserving motor oils. This license was
granted because of the rigorous third party testing that has been performed on
BestLine's Diesel fuel Treatment and Gasoline Conditioner has been registered
with the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
BestLine participates and supports the monitoring and review of its test data by the
American Chemistry Council of Arlington, VA.
BestLine surpassed industry requirements on the rigorous Sequence VIB fuel
economy test as set by the EPA and the API at the South West Research Institute
in San Antonio, Texas. The tests of BestLine's Synthetic Engine Treatment was
monitored by and registered with The American Chemistry Council and the
American Petroleum Institute (API).
BestLine successfully passed a Sequence VI-B-SJ Fuel Economy test at
Southwest Research Institute.
BestLine successfully passed rigorous Sequence VIII test at Intertek Caleb Brett
Automotive Research (formally EG&G - Perkin Elmer) also in San Antonio,
BestLine successfully passed the Sequence L-38 for monitoring wear under extreme
pressure along with the measurement of sludge and varnish.
BestLine Diesel fuel treatment exceeded the standards for wear in Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel by over 25% when subjected to the High Frequency Reciprocating Rig Testing (HFRR).
Labs and institutes

→ New lubrication paradigm
API - Schedule A, quality label
License agreement from American Petrol Institute to display "API Service" Symbol on BestLine's products
→ Authorised to display API Service symbol on BestLine’s product
Sequence VIII, oil quality certification for USA
Evaluation of the lubricant performance in combating Wear and to measure viscous shear stability. Conducted by Intertek Automotive Research.
→ No change in viscosity number, 11% lower baring weight loss
Sequence VIB, fuel economy certification for USA
Method 6837 for measurement of the effects of automotive engine oils fuel economy of passenger cars and light trucks in the sequence VIB spark ignition engine conducted by Southwest Research institute.
→ Licensed as energy conservative ol by the API, 1.51% fuel economy
ASTM-D 6079, Lubricity test
Evaluation of lubricity quality, using high frequency reciprocating rig scar test and conducted by Intertek Caleb-Brett, the test measure the size of the scars.
→ Reduces wear by Over 25%
Combustion and Power laboratory of Taiwan.
Test Engine oil and Fuel Treatment YAMAHA ME200F, 2000cc, 3 cylinders, direct injection Diesel engine Diesel Fuel: CPC Super Diesel.
→ Fuel burn reduction 9.9% - emissions reduction 13.9%
Gazole EN590, European certification of treated Diesel
A certification conducted by Intertek France to validate diesel mixed with Diesel fuel Treatment for national distribution.
→ Entitled for European distribution.
CRC L-38: Oil break down.
Conducted on engine stand ASTM D-5119-90, by Perkin-Elmer Fluid Science Automotive Research. CRC l-38 measure wear on a copper piston rod bearing and the accumulation of sludge and varnish. The Engine Treatment reached the highest score recorded by the lab.
→ Scoring 58.30/60 on varnish and 58.80/60 on sludge tests, 60 being the perfect score.
Primary parameter of engine deviations.
Tests were conducted on the various engine components at the completion of the test to evaluate any changes the test oil with the added Engine Treatment may have had on the engine. ASTM and the ACC for the API allows permitted deviation before a failure is recorded.
→ No deviation recorded.
ASTM D-2981: Block on Ring Test.
The test measure wear, friction and temperature pressuring a block of metal on a 40mm ring. We ran four sequence with 10% and 15% of Engine Treatment into respectively mineral base oil and synthetic base oil.
→ Reductions: Friction up to 48%, temperature up to 38.7%, wear up to 78.8%.
ASTM D-130: Copper corrosion test.
The tests were carried out on polished copper blanks that were submerged, for 3 hours at 100 degrees C, in oil treated with 15% of BestLine's Engine Treatment and a number of its blended by-products.
→ No corrosion.
Sample oil was drawn from the running engine every 10 hours and analyzed to compare the used oil with the oil prior to running.
→ Very low deviation.
ASTM D-5185: Metal Analysis
A sample of Engine Treatment was subjected to a metal detection of Aluminum, Barium, Copper, Chromium, Iron, Lead, Nickel, Molybdenum, Zinc, Silver, Tin and Vanadium.
→ No metal detected
Marine vessel, F/V Challenger.
Treatment of the two main Cat engine and two generators with Diesel Engine Treatment and Fuel treatment.

Treating 22 trucks, class 8 units operating with Cummins VT-903 engines operating on low sulfur diesel (LSD) with Diesel Fuel Treatment without cetane booster. Each tractor had accumulated at least 200,000 miles so that all tests would be stabilized.
→ Fuel burn reduction 5.7%.
Stationary Lister Diesel test.
Using on a Lister Diesel engine stand results demonstrated best economy with 2.5 oz per 10 gallons of Diesel Fuel Treatment.
→ Fuel Burn reduction 16.57%.
