Thinking of adding 1 oz. Militec-1 per quart of lube to the crankcase, chain case and transmission. Anyone have comments/experience with this product?

The site says:

When MILITEC-1 is applied to a metal surface, it chemically reacts with, and is adsorbed by, the metal. The chemical reaction takes place at temperatures between 100°F and 150°F (38°C - 66°C) depending on friction and load conditions. The effect of the chemical reaction is a stiffening (not hardening) of the metal surface -- approximately seventeen times stiffer when the reaction is complete. The increased stiffness dramatically reduces friction and parasitic drag, just as when an underinflated tire is pumped up.

Question for our oil expert:
Ok to use this with AMSOIL MCV?

From the site:
WHAT IS MILITEC-1?

MILITEC-1 is a clear golden synthetic liquid resembling an SAE 10-weight oil. When MILITEC-1 is added to the primary lubricant of any machine, it will increase operating efficiency, extend equipment life, reduce downtime and cut unscheduled maintenance.

Even though MILITEC-1 is added to the oil, it is not an oil additive. MILITEC-1 contains no viscosity enhancers or other oil augmentation compounds. It does not modify the primary lubricant in any way.

MILITEC-1 simply uses the circulating oil as a means to reach the critical hot spots and metallic friction surfaces within the machinery. When the oil carries MILITEC-1 to these areas, MILITEC-1 exits the oil, leaving the oil completely unaffected and unchanged.

Sounds slicker than snake oil

I've only used Miltec on weapons (M16 and SAW). I liked the results in that application, but adding it to the engine oil is a totally different deal. I think I'd try it on the lawnmower before I tried it on the scoot. -2$en#e-

I don't personally know anything about this product, but when you add it to your oil it is an additive in my book and there isn't an oil company that will stand behind their product if you change it in any way with an additive. What would one be trying to get from this concoction? When the manufacture states it isn't an additive I have to question that right away.
