Who is "they" and what exactly are they trying to sell you?

Sorry, the dealer recommended at the 90,000 service in addition to the regular maintenance I add some oil conditioner's and other "special" additives which would cost about 3x's the normal service. I have been told in the past that this is something they recommend to make money. Just checking to see what others think.

Probably a total waste of money. Unless they can show you that Toyota recommends it - in writing! 90k is nothing for a Toyota - I went over 300k on mine and I never added anything at all - just changed oil.
