Is there some over riding reason to use this? Smoking engine, oil consumption etc? I expect most folks on this board will tell you to step away and stick to an appropriate oil and filter and reasonable change intervals.

I only reason is that my car is leaking or burning 1.5 qts of oil 5000 miles oci so I was thinking to used this additive or mix valvoline vr1 20w50 or max life 20w50 to make oil thicker.

Every engine is different, try it. You got nothing to lose.

My feeling about this is that it's an response to Lucas from Valvoline and it might be a decent product. Since Valvoline owns a chain of quick lubes I would imagine they are using this for upsells.

Looks like competition for Lucas and STP. I wouldn't use it in a healthy good running engine. I might give it a shot if I owned an oil burner.

Wouldn't it be easier/better to check and maintain the oil level as needed?
Certainly less expensive.

A quart to quart and a 1/2 in 5k is not much. Rather than mess with this additive or mixing in 20w50, why not just use an oil like a 5w 30 hm oil instead of 0w 20?

Well then that will make the oil "thicker." You really have nothing to lose if you already bought it, give it a shot and report back.

Gottcha, in that case go for it, use that, or perhaps schaeffers 132, at least those products have some anti-wear additives in them.

Umm, maybe use a 5W30 instead of the 5W20 that the engine originally requested on the fill cap? That way at least you're using a fully-formulated oil rather than intermingling unknown stuff and definitely decreasing TBN and anti-wear compounds over whatever oil you buy. Try either M1 HM or PPHM if you want synthetic, or get the red jug of Valvoline HM for about $17.

FWIW, 1-1.5 quarts in 5k miles in a Honda J35 with cylinder deactivation is not that unusual or concerning. Try something a little less likely to get past the piston rings, and make sure your PCV valve is clear and functioning.

Neither moly nor ZDDP will stop oil burning, and they are not good for catalytic converters. So again, why not try a thicker high mileage oil instead of being a backyard chemist and having to wonder if you’re going to cause more harm than good?
