Ever heard of "snake oil"? Maybe maybe you should read information that isn't publised by Zmax - try this FTC Sues Speedway Motorsports and Oil-Chem Subsidiary
Also, even though I don't like Amsoil because of their advertising gimickry, this website at least gives some information on aftermarket additives.

You got that right. You change the chemistry of the oil. Most additives are petroleum-based and will shorten the drain interval of the oil by adding them. They may improve conventional oil, but by adding that expense, you're better off going with a good synthetic oil instead.......and I can't agree more with the 'snake oil' comparison. Besides, I can't imagine adding ANYTHING to synthetic oil.
Please stop the hating. Marketing of a product has zero bearing on how well it will perform.Also, even though I don't like Amsoil because of their advertising gimickry, http://www.ultimatesyntheticoil.com/oil_additives/facts_about_aftermarket_oil_additives.htm
