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?

    I can from experience say that honey do not work as lubrication. If you know what I mean

    Oh one more thing if you haven’t already done it how about running it with Liqui-Moly Engine Flush Plus - 300mL or part oil & the rest engine oil flush?

    Loll how funny I love your videos I’m actually processing honey frames and wanted to watch something and this came up! Very interesting Indeed! I’m also rendering down some beeswax and thought how about you try some beeswax but damn it becomes flammable at 200 degrees Celsius but if it only gets to 120 C it would be interesting to see if it lubricates? You might have to let the engine run for 20 mins or so first so it stays hot then melt the desired amount of wax in a pot at 80 degrees C then pour it in & it should stay liquid because it’s still pretty hot and after the test quickly drain it bit of a Mission but I reckon it would possibly work if you can be bothered thanks again for another awesome video

    You should do "Can you use vape juice as engine oil?"

    Come on Project farm, you know better than this, I hope you are not trying to get attention around the world. I am telling you that honey is sugar based with water, while the heat is on, the engine will run ok for your experiment which is only temporary. But once you stopped, the water in the honey will react with air and turn to acid then you will see the rust after few days if engine stopped not running. You also noticed that sugar will burn into carbon and tehreofre lots carbon residues will be found. This is why we use ENGINE OIL. Why don't you do an experiment to SHOW PEOPLE what happened to the engine after 4 days with out running. This is a total ignorant experiment I thought you were an qualified engineer. To be honest, any high school students would know this, unless you never passed your high school which is doubtful. Any way, this is my honest opinion. Next project, please run engine with cow piss.

    Reminds me of when I was a mechanical engineer at a manufacturing company. One client had made the mistake of using a water pump to transfer molasses into a tank. When the pump got up to operating temperature, the molasses caramelized and destroyed the pump. The funny part was when they applied for a warranty replacement.

    Not sure if you've made a video like this yet but I'd love to see a video seeing how long it takes to ruin an engine with no oil

    Wasting what others can't afford to buy. Ridiculous even it came close to being a lubricant. Please think about the poor before wasting, thanks.
