    Default Marvel Mystery Oil

    Marvel Mystery Oil, ...has anyone heard of this stuff? My dad swears by it. You put it in the crankcase and or the gas. I think it even acts as a gas "stabil".

    Does it work? Or is it snake oil.

    It's been around as long as I can remember AND I've used it in various vehicles for various purposes (as recommended) for nealry as long as I've been playing with cars (~35 years). I like the stuff. I'll bet you can get the opposite reaction form someone else but that's my $0.02.

    It is like Geritol, it has been around for a long time and still works. You young whipper snappers are just to busy with Z-Max , Lucas and Mobil1 to notice it. I think it may also cure snake bite; oops sorry you need some good Kentucky Whiskey for that.

    I've used it in older cars with very high mileage and always liked it too.

    Hi Steve!
    I have also used it on lots of stuff in the shop! I have a friend with a machine shop and get it by the gallon through him.
