if you're really going to do this then get one of the "name brand" additives specially formulated to swell those seals. some of the early stop leak additives used toluene which worked really well, except it caused the seals to deteriorate aside from making them swell up. so, soon after, the leaking seal would fail altogether. the newer formulations do not cause this deterioration...
