Best Oil / Fuel Additives?

I have heard everything from additives are a waste of $$$ to additives can add thousands of miles to your TJ....

Does anyone have any insight into this subject? Should we use additives, if so which ones are the best?

The major oil manufacturers collectively advise against adding additives to their engine oils which more than likely just disrupt the careful blend they have engineered.

Gasoline too... for example, you don't need to add/use more injector cleaner additives, even occasionally. While this wasn't the case years ago when dirty injectors were common, modern gasolines all have sufficient fuel injector cleaning additives to keep our injectors clean. And that's the case no matter what octane gasoline you use.

Remember that having a different opinion doesn't also require one to be a jerk when expressing it.

When you have a choice, buy American.

None is the best option/manufacturer. Use quality, name-brand oils and gas and you're good to go.
