Oil be loving you

You can talk about the properties of oil for ever - but I've never seen one yet that cleans itself or gets rid of its contaminants. Even the best filters won't remove any of the unwanted chemicals. In my opinion the only way to get the crud out of your engine is to change it. Overall I think its best to buy reasonable quality oil and change it often and don't put any so-called magic formula additives.
Oh Dear I feel a song coming on "Oil be loving you for ever"
