If your talking about that engien honey stuff then I wouldn't do it.
Why are you switching what you put in your oil?

The oil stabilizer stuff in my opinion is a waste. That stuff is used alot in acutions to quiet up cars w/ lifter clatter.
Just use a good synthetic if you want to do something with your oil.

I used to use it in mine but,now I just use Halvoline 10w30 and a Purolator Pure One filter EVERY 3000 miles

Where was Lucas when our Dad'* were getting 100K+ from a motor

all that it reallyt does is effectively increase the viscosity of the oil, the only true benefit of using it is if you have bad valve seals, or severe oil leaking that you want to bandaid and not actually fix. i would NEVER EVER use it on a healthy motor EVER

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Valvoline Maxlife 10W-40 for 3800'* over 85K miles. You will get much improved performance and fuel mileage.

Disclaimer: No, I am not getting payed by Valvoline; however, I wish I were.
