You should ask a mod to delete this silly thread.

No. Don't use oil additives. Use a quality full synthetic oil. A quality filter. And change both every 5,000 miles or at least yearly (regardless of low miles). It's really that simple.

Not a good plan. Use quality synthetic oil and change it often.
