Got my new 2018 1SS. Prolong?

I used to believe that Prolong Super lubricant helped older engines when I had a 1985 5.0 TransAm as a kid, but have never had the need to used it since. Has anyone used Prolong in a new car and seen any benefit? I have read about minor mileage improvements and even starting sound changes. More important, anything negative before I commit to a full $18 to buy a bottle?

My 1SS has 250 miles on it, is my daily and will never see a track. That said, any little benefit I'd love to take advantage.

Don't buy any additive crap. Just run with the owners manual tells you to....for oil.

I got an e-mail the other day that said I could get a bottle of Pro-Long pills that would drastically improve my sex life. Should I get them?

To Pro-Long, just think of Nancy Pelosi or Maxine Waters while doing the deed.

It’s formulated with AFMT™ (Anti-Friction Metal Treatment).

It must be good.
