Is Prolong oil treatment a good idea?

I have a 2.0T FSI. 2006 2.0T Audi A3 non-quattro manual transmission. 280,000 miles.

Prolong made my lawn mowers last forever but I've heard that Audi said "Prolong is not a good idea" -- but that's so often their automatic answer

Anybody have experience with this supposedly super-slick oil additive?

It's snake oil.

Don't love the lawnmower analogy.

In my country they run half hour every two weeks, six months of the year. That's 13 hours/year. Most Americans drive their Audis that many hours in two weeks.

If my Audi failed after two weeks I would not say it "lasted forever."
