No.  Good, top tier oils don't need any, for one thing, and for another, most of them do more bad stuff than good.  A lot of them are metallic (metals like calcium) and that can end up embedded in the carbon on the piston crown, which can produce "hot spots" that can pre-ignite the fuel.  Any kind of friction reducers have the potential to cause clutch problems.

 

Just don't.
