Funny you should mention maple syrup... I find that a quart of maple syrup
added during every oil change improves cold start performance and quiets
noisy lifters...
It's gotta be the real deal, original syrup though, and it works better if
you use fully synth oil and add the syrup to your pancakes, and not the
engine... ;-)

mmm... pancakes...
