Nothing beats Flyguard.

Not available in any stores. But what is it? It’s called flying your bird 30 minutes once a week if you aren’t traveling.

My bonanza went 700 hours past TBO with compressions still in the 70’s on nickel cylinders. Accessories were starting to show signs of age such as the prop governor. The support staff (wife) was getting nervous so I replaced the engine and prop. Turns out the prop was past specs to overhaul.

Oil used was Phillips XC and no additives were used. Oil changed 3 times per 100 hours.

And I live in the deep south with high humidity.

Flyguard…..I swear by it.

Here here! I use FlyGuard as much as possible! Can't use too much of that! Engines like to be RUN!

"Microlon Engine Treatment (for standard engines) and Microlon CL-100 (for high performance engines) reduce friction inside the engine which increases performance, gives better fuel economy and lowers maintenance costs."

Sounds too good to be true or marketing sales pitch, unless there is bona-fide engineering test data to support Microlon's claim.

This can be said of almost every single gasoline or oil additive of the last 60 years, when Andy Granatelli was able to convince the public that STP was magic.

Didn’t say compared to what, did they?
