Bros, Gentlemen and Ladies:
Based on a few and probably very rare incidents.
I am taking the liberty to make this new guideline for all:
There are a few notes each distributor/stockist or OTG Tech Guy should take and enact before treating any vehicle or engine with GTO.
1. Be sure there is no Teflon content on the previous oil; If sooner or later you found out there is after the treatment, simply drain the whole oil and flush it, replace with normal multi-grade oil and repeat GTO treatment as per suggested dosage from the guide.
2. Be sure to check the condition of the engine oil first and foremost!
     a. VISUAL CHECK: If there is a trace of grayish ash matter with the oil - DONOT treat with GTO. (You must DRAIN the old oil and flush it IMMEDIATELY!, replace filter and oil)
     b. FEEL CHECK: With your fingers, feel the oil for smoothness and or roughness, IF THERE IS A SANDY FEEL, Do not treat with GTO! (Drain and Flush immediately! replace filter and oil)
     c. SMELL CHECK: With you nose, Check for smells of fuel (Gasoline or Diesel), if there is a smell of fuel, it means, there is dillution. (Draining and Flushing of oil is OPTIONAL, if oil is still clear with metallic particulates, then it's ok to retain this oil);
     d. STAIN CHECK: Drop a few old engine oil on your fingers, rub it a few times, then wipe it off one time with a clean cotton clothe or tissue paper, if there is a dark stain left on your finger tips, Do not Treat with GTO! (The dark stain is from metallic particles suspended in the old oil) Treating this with GTO may cause accelerated damage to the engine. (Drain and Flush immediately, Replace with Fresh ordinary oil then treat with GTO according to suggested dosage from the guide.)
3. Any condition not listed above, an trained/ qualified OTG Guy/ Technician should be  able to discern himself and is expected to give the appropriate recomendation; There is a need to have a qualified and well informed OTG Guy/ Technician in every locality in order to service and cater to the public.

Notes to ponder

NASA claims that the government could slow down worldwide global warming by cutting down on soot emissions. Studies by NASA show that cutting down on soot would not only have an immediate cooling effect, but would also put a stop to many of the deaths caused by air pollution. When soot is formed, it typically travels through the air absorbing and releasing solar radiation which in turn begins to warm the atmosphere. Cutting soot emissions would be an immediate help against global warming, as the soot would quickly fall out of the atmosphere and begin to cool it down.

Cutting back on soot emissions would buy us time in our fight against global warming. Soot is caused by the partial burning of fossil fuels, wood and vegetation. Soot is known to contain over forty different cancer causing chemicals, and a complete cut would offer untold health benefits worldwide.

Environmental conservation has always been a topic for lengthy discussions, but up until recent times, global warming and climate changes were vague subjects, with no hard proof. Not surprisingly, the previous lack of attention to these issues have created a very gloomy outlook on our future. So, considering all this, what could be the biggest contributor to climate changes through global warming? Transportation - the man-made iron horses, flying machines and sea monsters, so to speak.

The question we have now is how green is our transportation? The majority of the worlds' vehicles are fueled by oil (petrol, diesel and kerosene). Even if they rely on electricity, the stations used to generate this electricity use fossil fuels for power! Excluding vehicle manufacture, transportation is responsible for 14% of the artificially created greenhouse emissions, mostly carbondioxide.

Automobiles, trains and planes are all responsible for this problem, but cars are the highest impact-makers. They release approximately six times more carbondioxide than a plane and seven times more than sea vessels.

What is Air Pollution?

Air pollution is somewhat difficult to define because many air pollutants, at low concentrations, are essential nutrients for the sustainable development of ecosystems. So, air pollution could be defined as:A state of the atmosphere, which leads to the exposure of human beings and/or ecosystems to such high levels or loads of specific compounds or mixtures thereof, that damage is caused. With very few exceptions, all compounds that are considered air pollutants have both natural as well as human-made origins.

Air pollution is not a new phenomenon; in Medieval times, the burning of coal was forbidden in London while Parliament was in session. Air pollution problems have dramatically increased in intensity as well as scale due to the increase in emissions since the Industrial Revolution.
