That helped, thanks. FWIW I added 1/2 qt. of MMO at the last oil change and it's been all quiet since then... for now. I'm not big on magic additives but figured it was worth a shot since "everyone" on theSamba vouches for it.
I'm not big on magic potions either, but some do work in a pinch, and some cars I do not care if the Coolant Leak Stop! In A Bottle! clogs every passage in their cylinder head. I used Engine Overhaul In A Can to reduce the smoking in my poor Lincoln, it worked.

That said, let's agree that Marvel Mystery Oil is another way of saying, "the oil has not been changed enough" (not necessarily under your stewardship, but somewhere in the time line).

Agreed... I can only vouch for the last 2.5 years... who knows what happened before then.
