Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. What is difference between Lube-V Fully Synthetic Slot Car & Model Train Lubricant and other synthetic lubricant? 

Not all synthetic lubricants/oils are equal. This is especially true in USA. Over 10 years ago, ExxonMobil lost a lawsuit against BP Castrol, which allowed BP and so other companies to claim highly refined petroleum oil (Group III oil) as “synthetic oil”. (Simply google “Mobil 1 Castrol synthetic lawsuit” for more details.) These petroleum distillates for sure can greatly reduce the manufacturer’s cost, but meanwhile all the lubricant professionals know and can prove that the performance of petroleum distillates cannot compete with true synthetic oils. Also, true synthetic oils are usually much safer than petroleum distillates during the use.
