I would not put additives or synthetic oil in these old engines. Your seals will leak.

Has anyone tried ZMax engine and fuel formula here? Thoughts?
My "rule of thumb" for products like this is:

"Snake oil unless proven otherwise."

It goes with the one that starts: "If is sounds too good... "

Is that from personal experience? Because I've had no issues with leaking seals on mine.
Yeah I accidentally poured 4 quarts of synth during an oil change before I noticed, and it slowly leaked out the rear seal. I let it run it course and added 1 quart of cheap gas station oil a week, its since stopped. My seals are 23 years old, theres not way they can handle this thin/slick stuff. Maybe if I had new seals I would.
