    That's what I thought, I've been arguing with a friend that its junk but he swears by it. I've only used synthetic oil for years now and never had a problem. He will learn the hard way

    If you use a quality oil and filter there is no need for an additive. The only time I add anything to my oil is on our old school cars with flat tappet cams -- they get a sip of ZDDP.

    I use PeeMax from time to time.
    Take any quality SN API rated motor oil and a quality filter.
    Change oil.
    While filling with fresh oil....pee in last bottle....continue filling sump.
    Start car let run for a few minutes and shut it off.
    Allow time for oil to drain back into sump and check dipstick. Adjust as needed.
    PeeMax will soak into the metal allowing a cushion between moving parts.
    We did not have to pay any ancient old fool to lean up against a car and swear this works. No animals were killed in the filming of this commerical. Hurt maybe but not killed.

    Just as good as Zmax and cost effective too.

    And it was only a 3hp engine when new. Now you have an 8hp engine on your lawnmower! You could really cut some grass!

    Seriously, Zmax is just mineral oil with some fancy marketing and a picture & signature (perhaps fake/forged) of an older former race car driver on the package. The older former racer driver usually has a very nice smile on his face from the nice paycheck he received to endorse the snake... errr... aahh... mineral oil in the fancy bottle.

    I would read all the fine print accompanying it before using it. And be very skeptical about all the claims made about it before trying it. Since we live in a free society, you still have the right to not try it out at all.

    I dont really believe in Additives

    I dont even use sea foam

    Just use a Good Quality oil, Good gasoline, and stay up on your maintenance and you should be fine

    I agree to a point.
    Todays SN rated oils need no help.
    Todays ethanol gas does.
    I just have way too much feedback on the positives of using TCW3 in the gas.
    I have never recommended any solvent based cleaners. Top on that list is SeaFoam.
