Marvels oil is nothing more then Automatic Transmission fluid.  I used it
to get my Midget functional by filling #1 cynlinder with it to free a stuck
ring, worked fine.  I also add it to crankcase oil about 100miles before
an oil change.  Did this regularly on my VW Beetle and noticed no 
sludge buildup during a 50kmile valvejob which is fairly amazing when the
only "filter" is that screen at the bottom...
