best study on Oil Additives-

Best study on OIL-Additives- a must read! When I first got my Yota over 7 years ago with 43,000 orginal miles, first thing I ran out an dood was to buy a 300.00 engine PTFE oil treatment called "MICROLON". well, Older, and wiser now, I have done a lot of research, and heres the actual case story of Oil additives. Let the buyer beware. http://heartlandsynthetics.com/oil_t...reatments.html

I just use Valvoline and change it every 3000 miles. Even my older rigs. I used to use Pennzoil, but a mechanic friend told me that he tore apart Pennzoil engines and Valvolive engines, and the Pennzoil engine was usually more gunked up. I think Pennzoil uses a wax, that's why. I used Pennzoil because of A. J. Foyt. For you young bucks, he raced Indy cars in the 70's and 80's.

I use additives to clean injectors and such......... It does get rid of hesitation during accelaration.
