Can you use Honey as Engine Oil? Let's find out!

  • Published on: 19 November 2018
  • Many viewers requested we test honey or maple syrup as engine oil. So, what will happen to an engine if honey is used in place of engine oil? In a previous video, we tested sugar in gas and the engine survived. Will the engine survive this time? Obviously, you'd never want to do this to any engine. However, many viewers have been on the receiving end of spiteful deeds, such as this. Also, if you were in an extreme emergency and had to choose between using honey and nothing at all in the crankcase of an engine, would honey be better than nothing? Things get interesting in this video when Marvel Mystery Oil and Seafoam deep creep is used to "save the engine". Will MMO and Seafoam be able to help?

    How about a test of different oils in air compressors. They seem to always call out non detergent oils, but what about if you put in straight weight or 20W-50 detergent oil, or how about transmission fluid, or pure slick 50 or sewing machine oil, or moly oil, or 3 in 1 or cooking oil or just some pure liquid laundry detergent? I guess my main question is why is detergent oil bad for an air compressor?

    Can you do a test on how 10W-30 tastes in tea or in oatmeal and if it helps you stay regular? Thanks in advance.

    If it is true that I can use honey as motor oil, it is also true that I can use motor oil on rusks

    You’ve probably covered this in a video but on your lubricity tester. Ive always wondered, do you have to replace the wheel?

    This video taught me two things:1. Honey is NOT a good oil substitute 2. 2-stroke Honda clones are resilient little powerhouses (if they’re clean)

    Once you see the blow by coming out of the PCV, that's water steam. You need to add WATER to the crank case, to keep the sugar from caramelizing, which is what hung the valves.(how the rod throw bearing didn't seize is beyond me)

    I really really hate it when people ask for you to subscribe. I know some are harmless but a lot of the times it is very annoying. Thats why I'm subscribing to ProjectFarm because in a lot of his videos he isn't begging you to subscribe or hit the like button. Dude knows you will do it based on how good his content is and doesn't need to ask for handouts like everyone else in the world today. Keep it up maine!

    What about trying some pine tar? I know it is very thick and not sure how much sugars are in it like honey. You can find it at tractor supply in the horse section. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/bickmore-pine-tar-16-fl-oz

    So in hind sight, honey isn't good for an engine, but it'll be a great lubricant for the wife's dildos.

    You didn't say whether honey is better than nothing though.

    ... Stick to comparing consumer products that the "average joe" can appreciate and apply to their daily lives ... You are truly one of YouTube's Shining Stars ... Putting honey into an engine as a lubricant is just plain silly and such a waste of your talent and time ...
