: Ok, think about it. If those additives did what they claimed why doesent every automaker form every country use them> As a matter of fact, owner's manuals usually recommend against the use of oil additives. I dont think they work that well, but I have heard of slick 50 somehow restricting oil flow to your rockers.
: An engine will usually give countless miles if its well maintained, just having regular oil changes with regular oil. What more could you want?
You are RIGHT ON, Ben! I read that DuPont that holds the patent for Teflon put out a warning to NEVER use anything with Teflon in a motor, they said it wasn't made for that and it can't work as it simply passes into the oil filter and plugs it up.
The oil companies put the additives into the oil that is engineered for the motor and if there is a 'magic formula' they would use it!
DO NOT use anything but a high quality oil in your car! In fact, check out this link:
And also always use a GOOD oil filter.. check out this oil filter compare to really open your eyes to the hype the companies give to the public:
