Yep

Having had arguments on here with people who apparently know better than qualified opinion and objective evidence I'm going to avoid any arguments and just let you make up your own minds.

Additives are blended at the proper rate, heat and in the proper proportions by the manufactures of their particular product. Crude supplies are not all the same quality and the additives have to be adjusted for the quality of the base stock being used by each particular company, per batch. Dumping your own personal stuff will more than likely be way inferior to what the oil manufacturer uses. The chemicals will normally differ from the manufacturers blend, and can cancel each other out to the point where there will be no anti-wear properties left in the product.

The fact is they are totally useless and in many cases actually … The fact is they are totally useless and in many cases actually detrimental or damaging to your engine. If you quietly corner a lubrication engineer (in case he works - or might one day work - for one of "those" companies) and ask him "off the record", he'll tell you that oil additives are the modern version of “snake oil” sales: completely fraudulent, they’re an unethical embarrassment to the lubrication industry. The Federal Trade Commission has issued charges of false and deceptive advertising that these and many other additive manufacturers have misled consumers into believing that their products offer increased engine protection and performance when added to your motor oil.

Increased Standard Additives, (More Is Not Necessarily Better)Though some … Increased Standard Additives, (More Is Not Necessarily Better)Though some additives may not contain anything harmful to your engine, and even some things that could be beneficial, most experts still recommend that you avoid their use. The reason for this is that your oil, as purchased from one of the major oil companies, already contains a very extensive additive package.This package is made up of numerous, specific additive components, blended to achieve a specific formula that will meet the requirements of your engine. Usually, at least several of these additives will be synergistic. That is, they react mutually, in groups of two or more, to create an effect that none of them could attain individually. Changing or adding to this formula can upset the balance and negate the protective effect the formula was meant to achieve, even if you are only adding more of something that was already included in the initial package.If it helps, try to think of your oil like a cake recipe. Just because the original recipe calls for two eggs (which makes for a very moist and tasty cake), do you think adding four more eggs is going to make the cake better? Of course not. You're going to upset the carefully calculated balance of ingredients and magnify the effect the eggs have on the recipe to the point that it ruins the entire cake. Adding more of a specific additive already contained in your oil is likely to produce similar results.This information should also be taken into account when adding to the oil already in your bike or when mixing oils for any reason, such as synthetic with petroleum. In these cases, always make sure the oils you are putting together have the same rating (SA, SE, SC, etc.). This tells you their additive packages are basically the same, or at least compatible, and are less likely to upset the balance or counteract each other.

Lubrication Engineer!!

I used this on my old mk3 mondeo, followed the instructions, two weeks later engine blew up and by that I mean the piston in cylinder 1 exploded and put two large holes in the block.

It may not have been down to the additive however its the 1st and only engine that has blew up on me, it was the only time I have used the additive so for me it seemed very coincidental.

yep do not do it
