Angry high speed smoking?

I have a 1991 300E 4matic, my question is this...my car does not smoke around town or at around 45 mph, but If I get on the interstate and travel about 60mph, it looks like a fogging for bugs. I do know the car did alot of sitting where it wasn't driven alot in the past 4 years, and prior to that since it was new it did alot of highway travel. (Surgeon owned). I picked up some smoke away stuff that says it rebuilds the seals and so on, will that work? I haven't tried it yet because I have to put it in when I change the oil. Or, because it sat pretty much idle for a period of time should I get back on the interstate and just let it work its way through its smoking period? Please help!!!!

Thanks E. Billman

have you changed the oil lately? try changing the oil and going with a 20w50 and see if that helps. i'd try that before i'd put the "snake oil" stuff in.
