Yes...
Marvel Mystery Oil (still use, but rarely)
TufOil (don't use in the engine anymore but it's good for open gearboxes and general lubrication)
Slick 50 (about 30 years ago)
that's it

I have learned this: in a clean and healthy engine, driven normally, using quality oil of the correct viscosity... no oil additives are needed. Period.

One I got the MSDS statement on indicating it had anti-ageing chemicals & anti-wear/friction ONLY.
Knowing what is in it helps understand what it can do.
Also, its important to only add it half-way or 3/4-way through an oil change interval as the original chemicals break down.
Berryman Engine Oil Extender:

Petroleum Oil... 64742-65-0... 45-55% (Group II neutral oil)
Polybutylene Succinimide confidential... 9-12% (VII and dispersant)
Dialkylated Diphenylamine... 68411-46-1... 6-10% (Antioxidant)
Zinc Dialkyl Dithiophosphate proprietary... 2-5% (ZDDP - Anti-Wear)
Organomolybdenum Complex proprietary... 1-2% )(MoDTC, friction Modifier)

That stuff is called Krex. We used it with every oil change at a chevy dealer I worked at years ago. It had some deal that if you used that product you automatically got some kind of tire warranty that would last for a certain amount of time.

Yes

STP
Pro-Ma - a micronized lead/tin/copper that did really well on the one armed bandit.
PMT - a Teflon based lube in the '80s (NASA on the logo) it certainly DID increase compression and lower oil consumption.
Nulon E10 - a Teflon based lube, added to a ford 250 ci six with a gazillion miles on it. halved consumption
Slick 50 - did nothing, while the other two did something
Lucas - because it has no additives, I used it in turbine maintenance
Morey's (Lucas with antimony additives).
Lanolin (while I was waiting for my autoRX)
Auto-Rx - did nothing
Ethyl ester of rapeseed oil (I made that myself from scratch, about a gallon - a bit similar to a Scheaffer product give or take) it did some cleaning, but I got scared of the potential seal issues)
Rislone
Canola oil (cheapest additive I've used - nothing blew up which clearly vouches for it's superiority)

Early on, diesel, to help desludge engines...again nothing blew up, but I couldn't dismantle enough stuff to get the gallon of black goo out of it.

Only once and that was back in late 70's probably about 77 or 79, I had a big 1975 Gran Torino 351W and it developed a rear seal leak ,dumped in a bottle of STP oil leak stop to slow down the leak buy a few weeks until I could afford to get the seal replaced. The stop leak slowed the leak down a great deal and I drove it around for about 6 weeks and then had the rear seal replaced. The STP stopleak was a band aid nothing more,but in my case it did what it was suppose to do, Certainly not a long term fix.If something leaks the leak needs to be properly repaired Period!, But a leak stop can certainly buy some time until proper repair can be made.
