Oil Addative

I was checking out some of the videos on this site (POWERSTROKEHELP.COM - The Information Source for Ford Power Stroke Diesel Owners) and found where he recommends "PRO LONG" an oil additive, to increase lubrication, he said since it a "super lubricant" it will help the injectors as well as give increased cold start protection. Has anyone used prolong in their truck or any other oil additive and how has it worked. I already run Amsoil and the bypass filter.

let the oil manufacturers (whomever you use) decide what is best. Don't like what they are doing, then change manufacturers.
There's a saying.... you can put a gold door knob on an outhouse door, but it's still an outhouse. Maybe the same can be applied to additives?

I hear that most dandruff shampoos could technically be an EP additive due to their high zinc content, but I wouldn't put them in any engine of mine.

Oil companies spend a lot of money developing their additive packages. Don't mess with them. You are wasting your money.
