Default Zinc additives in oil

I was wondering what most use as a good zddp zinc additive for oil changes. I have used several and kind of like using the small bottles of additive thinking I would get a lot of the zinc to put in with the regular oil. I've heard too much though could be corrosive. Just wondered what Ford Barn thought about it and the best recommendations for brand of zinc. I know members here like me do "baby" their machines.

I normally put a small bottle of ZDDP in with each oil change. I recently found "Classic" Castrol oil with Zink.

I have used the Zddplus 4 oz. several times but was unaware of the Castrol with zinc. Have had no problems with either brand using Castrol in newer vehicles without the zinc in the past. Hope all members are aware of importance of using zinc in the older machines...

Valvoline ZR1 has plenty of zinc, no additives needed.
