I have used BG transmission service (with my Amsoil fluid) and coolant service with great success.

A couple of weeks ago, I had to replace the oil pressure sending unit on my Titan. Much to my chagrin, I did not realize that so much oil would come out when I removed the sensor.

Long story short, I wound up having to do a complete oil change that I was not prepared for. I had my filter, but was not stocked on PU. Didn't feel like going to Walmart so I went to Oreilly and got 7qts of M1 5w30 cause it was on sale.

Had a valve tick with the M1 that I don't get with the PU. Got myself a can of the BG MOA and I swear the tick stopped immediately. Much quieter engine with the MOA and M1.

I'll send a UOA when I change this time to see if there is anything special.

I will say that I like the BG products much more than I like the shops pushing a warranty. I buy products based on performance, not warranty.

That would be impossible to prove with any additive, too many variables.
If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

Using any additive excessively is never a good idea.
