Will Bananas work as Engine Is Electrolysis better than Evapo-Rust? 2 days ago   11:05

Is it a myth that bananas were once used successfully as engine oil by JC Baudot and Jacques Seguela in their Citroën 2CV as they crossed the Atacama desert in 1959? Let’s find out! We’ll run several tests to include a 30-minute engine run with banana “BW-30” as engine oil to see if the engine will survive.

The explorers tried it and their skeletons are still out there along with their vehicle to prove it.

I’m offended that you measured distance in inches, but heat in Celsius. Are you an American or what man?

Hi, how about using the whole banana, skin and all?

This video is bananas
It's likely a myth, unless they only had to travel a few miles. You might have caused less damage by just using water. Why not try that? Thanks Todd.
whatever mechanics
How about a mixture of the 2?

Anyone with half a brain would have included a small amount of residual oil in this test rather than to drain the engine dry first.
Could you do different break in oils. And weather there is less wear compared to synthetic or conventional.

One thing is the oil that was still in the oil pan of the travelers vehicle could of stiil had mabey a inch or 2 of oil still in it when the bananas was still in it also because of it was exploers which tend to use ex military cars/jeeps i would say plausible

Banana contains fruit sugar. The sugar melts and sticks to the engine.

Comparision is unfair. It should be banana vs Nothing instead banana vs 5w30 since banana was used when engine oil was not available.
Ruben Kelevra
6:36 "When I drained all the engine oil I'll go ahead and add the bananas."

Sentences no engineer like to hear 😂
arent bananas vastly different than ones you would find in nature

This test is absolutely bananas

Is Electrolysis better than Evapo-Rust? Will Bananas work as Engine 2 days ago   07:38

When it comes to rust removal, is electrolysis better than Evapo-Rust? Neither process involves the use of acid for removing rust, which is critical for restoring certain types of rusted items. A side-by-side comparison is accomplished on rusted wheel-stud lugs to see which process is best. I also use electrolysis to remove rust from a badly rusted wrench. I hope you enjoy the video and I really look forward to reading your comments.
