Well, as a matter of fact I havent' looked at prolong to see what was in
there, I just lumped it in there witht the rest of the "miracle"
	REgardless, I think if there was a formula for making an engine
magically last longer the oil companies would be selling it or adding it
to their regular motor oil.
	On top of this, Prolong I tthink it was, sends Bobby Unser around
a track with an engine without oil pan or oil.  But this company still
doesn't use a control, another identical car driven identically without
having being treated witht this stuff.  And until a reliable and
independent, not to mention named, lab tells me that it works, and how
they know it does, I will regard it as snake oil.  Since I don't have a
noisey snake, I'll leave it on the shelf.
	Just my thoughts.
