My response was a cheap last ditch effort. Honestly, I couldn't know how your engine will respond to the oil. Am I retreating from what I posted? No.

Sooner or later, you are going to at least have to do your valve stem seals.

My suggestion was a cheap long shot. Adding the high-mileage oil to our 300e did reduce oil consumption..... but it is not fouling plugs.

This is what I see: If you have the time window, give it a try. If time is critical and you simply can't wait and have to solve it ASAP .... pull the valve cover and go for the seals.

Hopefully this will help clarify ....
