I use Motorkote, I don't know where it stands in the additive market but it's been a good product for me.

You only use it on the third or fourth oil change so it's cost is less. http://motorkote.com/

Interesting stuff. As skeptical as I am about additives, I couldn't actually find anything on Google about it causing problems, only people calling it snake oil.

My missing bottle of Dominator racing oil is going to be sent out tomorrow. Excellent customer service.

That is great customer service. When I run out of Motorkote I'll give them a try, I like to experiment with new products.

Most diesel engine oil is excellent for air cooled engines. Pick a grade with the right viscosity and use it. $12.73 a gallon is a no brainer.

So I was picking up an oil filter to do an oil change tomorrow on my truck with the Amsoil, and saw the motorkote. I picked up a 32oz'er. But not for my truck. Gonna try it on relatively "cheap" stuff like my air-tools, 20gal air compressor, maybe generator.
