Pre lubers????

I keep my cars/trucks a long time and do mostly city short trips, lots of starts and stops. So I was thinking of a preluber. Anybody know much about them, who makes them for cars, how much trouble they are, Whats the skinny on prelubers?

They aren't needed on a modern vehicle. The only time one would be handy is right after a oil change. Especially if you don't fill the new oil filter with oil before installing. This can create up to 8 sec of dry cranking. My turbo lifesaver unit from Brite Box has a pre lube feature and I use it after a oil change.
