Yes and it will not overfill your reservoir.
Yes, AVBLEND is FAA approved for aircraft piston engines.
Use AVBLEND with each 25-hour oil change for best results, not to exceed 50 hours between oil change intervals or a total of four months maximum between oil change intervals, whichever comes first.
Add one 12oz can to 4-cyclinder engines (4-8 qt capacity). Add two 12oz cans to 6 or 8 cylinder engines (9 qt or more capacity). For other oil quart capacities, call our technical line 888-645-1101 for assistance. Note: The Continental TSIO and IO-360 series engines have an 8 qt capacity and will use only one 12oz can at each oil change interval.
No. Install your oil as the manufacturer recommends, then add AVBLEND as directed.
Yes, it works very effectively in high temperature environments persistent in turbo-charged engines.
We recommend installing AVBLEND in your engine's last flight before storage.
No, AVBLEND is not FAA approved for use in aircraft fuel systems.
AVBLEND helps keep friction surfaces cool during break-in. Too much heat while the metal is forming can easily cause brittleness, loss of flexibility and a tendency to break under sudden and severe strains. AVBLEND allows metal to temper itself under working conditions and assume the right degree of suppleness and hardness for the job it is intended to do during its entire performance life. This is known as work tempering (energizing) and can only be accomplished under conditions where excess frictional heat is reduced. AVBLEND allows proper break-in to occur while reducing conditions for cylinder wall glazing during the initial hours of a new engine's life.
No. If a failure occurs, the manufacturer would have to provide positive proof AVBLEND caused the failure in question.
