I will check back when you get to the add packs.
Curious as to your opinion of calcium v. magnesium v. alkenyl v. barium, etc dispersal and soot control additives.

Is the email in your signature a good line of communication for ordering L.E. products?

Have you ever tested Schaefer conventional 15/40, jim? Everybody recommends the synthetic, but I can't justify it yet in our equipment, just curious about your opinion on a competitors oil.
I will say their support seems pretty decent, but I've had some trouble getting the info on additive packages, of course.

Are there any additives you would add? Under what circumstances?

I have tested their oil. It is a good oil, no doubt (our 8800 performs just a bit better). You won't get answers from oil companies about add packs most of the time. The best way to see how the packs perform is to test them over the life of the oil. After you have seen a few hundred oil analysis like I have you start to pick up on the nuances and how they effect the engines over the long term. Synthetic is not always better. It cost a lot to get the add packs to work well in a full synthetic, and most companies don't put the money into esters and what not to get it to work properly. In my large fleets we use our non synthetic oil (8800) and go 60-80k between changes (or more). The hydrogenized mineral base stocks pair better with the add packs without the extra chemistry. Then the extra money can be spent on the base oil.
