Comments — “There are various types and forms of WVO, some of them good and some not so good. The form you are using is probably the cause of the potassium and sodium in the oil, and this isn’t good. Anti-freeze looks the same way (to us) and we know that isn’t a good thing, since it will eventually eat up the bearings. We found excessive bearing wear in this sample so you may want to search around for a more pure form of WVO or stop using it altogether, to reduce bearing wear. If you stop using WVO and potassium and sodium still appear, they are from anti-freeze.”
