Both of these seem to be boutique additives that actually do what they claim; reduce friction. Opinions? Would you run them?

Nope. I think current engine oils do a plenty good enough job as it is.

I use just engine oil. I picked an engine oil and now I trust the product to do its job. I don't mix engine oils either and guide my OCI by UOA's.

How effective are these friction tests at determining real world performance of these products? Seems almost unrealistic that regular oil stops the bearing in the machine almost instantly.

I have yet to see any OM that recommended oil additives. I wouldn't risk it, motor oil has additive packages built in and more is not always better. I have a Subaru and 2 Hyundais and neither OM recommends the use of any supplemental additives. They design, engineer, test and build them so that is good enough for me.

I've been trying to decide between Lucas,STP,or Prolong. I wonder which one builds the highest film strength? Maybe there's a good Timken bearing lubricity test out there someone can point me too.

Prolong, but it's chlorine based and will acidify oil. Fine for race cars where it's flush after a weekend at the track. But not good on the street frown

I would never say all are snake oil...but the burden of proof lies with the additive companies to prove otherwise. Some don't look too legit while others are intriguing to me. I have evolved away from them personally due to smart people (on here) that have more experience and knowledge than me.

Lubegard Red was approved for Saab transmission issues. I would probably only use Valvoline Synpower Oil additive(discontinued),Liquimoly MoS2,LM Motor Oil Saver,LM Ceratec,Lubegard Biotech, or Archoil.

Good oil is all that's needed.

Some additives add TOO MUCH of a good thing,

and actually make things worse...

There is always a measure of uncertainty when adding something to a fully formulated oil. Where it might help the engine to survive longer during a catastrophic loss of oil pressure, I have to wonder what it does to affect the overall chemistry and effectiveness of the entire oil additive package. I have tried many additives over the years and have had some noticeably good results with a few engine oil additives. The one that I am the most curious about and am considering to test, is called TurboMaxx. I have read a lot and seen some testing and met people that are using the product in their race motors and daily drivers and have yet to hear anything negative about it. I may try some to see what it does. It ain't cheap, though.
