How to protect wood fence cap?

The cap is cedar 2x8 lumber. It is stained now just like the rest of the fence. Since the fence is 8' high, the top is not visible. I would like to apply a penetrating wood preservative on the top surface. The green copper naphanate, engine oil, transmission oil, etc are what I have in mind. Please advise. Thank you.

I've always just applied a double coat of whatever stain I used on the rest of the fence.
