Are oil additives a good idea?

To my knowledge, oil additives are a good idea only if you start using them when you buy a brand new and you are the first person to own the car. It is not a good idea to use them with a car you bought, when you are perhaps the third or fourth owner ; car with high miles, not good idea. The vast majority of oil additives are snake oil products. Leave them alone. Change your oil & filter religiously and do not put any additive in your engine.

Even if you can it's not a good idea. These oils have different viscosity and might have different chemical content.

You can get special additives to tune 5w20 in something in between 5w20 and 5w30.
