Shouldnt put anything but oil in your car. Anything elses that claims to reduce burning of oil is a waste of money and posibly damage your cylinders. Same as in radiator or head leaks is no good adding anything to stop leaks. Best thing is to fix problem. But if your not gonna fix the problem just carry extra oil in the car so when u need some just add. Thats what I do, my car burns oil but I just add when neded and car still performs super strong. But hey its your car. Good luck

I don't knpw about the '92, but the '93 V-8 has a gasget under the oil filter body that is prone to failure. If you are finding oil on the floor on the left side of the engine, this well may be the problem
