Having started driving it as my daily driver, I have just changed gearbox oil and added ZX1 to it. Initially it was more noisy but now getting quieter after just a few miles. This stuff apparently reduces friction without coating everything in PTFE or anything that damages the gearbox. Change is smother too. I'll try it in the engine next.....

Beware of additives. Use good oil, correct viscosity and follow or reduce the recommended intervals between changes is a far better and cost-effective way of ensuring longevity of your engine. I wouldn't put anything other than a reputable oil in my cars and change it often. It's the single most important thing you can do.


Petrol 1.4 45 that's done 195,000 miles with Castrol synthetic oil changed every 12000.
