How often are you doing it?

And yes, I've been able to tell a difference. One on a Y8 with 133,000 miles and the other on an LS with 54,000 miles.

ive done this a few times but never put any in the crankcase so i just dump it in the oil hole and run it then change the oil the next day or just before i do any real driving?

Edit:bah someone answer my question

It will thin the oil out and not lubricate as well.
