I've seen it...

I've seen it used.

If you wanna know the difference with and without stare at a blank wall for an hour.. no difference.

I tried it in my old engine with reluctance. It really did reduce my oil consumption to 1/3rd what it had been. I can't speak to compression or power regained, as I never did any test to confirm, but my oil situation did improve. I calculated it saved me 4 to 7 dollars per oil change (I put in a 6 cylinder can every oil change) of Mobil 1. I was burning it at a pretty good rate though. If you have mild oil burning and don't get expensive synthetic oil, it'd probably be a waste of money.

Our '98 GP GTP was burning a quart every 3k miles, seems to have slowed down since we added the restore. She has 138K miles on her.

Mine car stopped burning oil after using it too. Gas smell in oil also went away.
