After numerous discussions, we have decided that the arguments in favor of additives make sense for both lubricity and biocides. Would others who use these additives on the 4-108 like to share their brands and amounts?

I run a biocide and PRI-D which is a stabilizer (both from WM). I follow the amount listed on the bottle.

My recent purchase has a Perkins 4-236. Chucks Marine in East Bay has cared for this engine, according to his records, for 15 years. I have contacted him twice with questions and have gotten prompt, with two days, polite and friendly answers. I've moved my boat to Marin, he is willing to come here, if he has more than one appointment to justify the trip.

This is my contact for him 510.272.0765
