Yes. IIRC, the instructions on the can recommend using 1 can (~.3 liters) per 4-5 quarts of oil. When I was about a quart low I just added 1 can and topped up with oil. I repeated this again about 3000 miles later (after having consumed 3 or 4 more quarts).

It probably goes without saying that if you're not burning significant amounts of oil you should only add MOA during an oil change. You don't want the ratio of MOA to oil to exceed the 1 can per 4-5 qt recommendation.
