I agree that the additives they use are well worth the money. Consider which additives they are using "higher levels of detergents" in order to reduce combustion chamber deposits. they have already put in a lot of petroleum based detergent "standard Stoddard Solvent" " Light petroleum solvent" etc.

Go back to the simple example:
You have 2000 gallons of dirty water in a pool, would you put 1 gallon of clean water in it and let your kids go swimming? More than likely you will have to add clean water & add something synthetic like chlorine/bromine. Again, to each his own
