Guys,

I've seen Lucas Oil Stabilizer at the local parts store. It seems to be very thick...maybe not quite as thick as STP. What advantage is there in using this additive, if any? Does it do anything more than thicken the oil so that an old engine will burn less and perhaps run quieter?

Does absolutely nothing but thicken your oil up into goop. There are no additives at all in Lucas.

Don't believe me? Check out the VOA section.....

What does it mean to "stabilize" oil? I don't want my oil to stabilize. I want it to flow!

It works great for me. BITOGers say that it foams up, and refer to some video on the web as scientific proof, but when I check my oil there is no foam on the dipstick. When I peer into my valve cover I see no foam.

My car's running like a dream right now with one quart of Lucas and two ounces of Tufoil in Lucas 5W20 syn oil.

I've never had a oil that needed to be stabilized.


I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.

The only use of this stuff is to control burning or consumption in an older engine. Even then, I think I'd use STP, Restore, or something BarsLeaks over it...

This stuff is seriously profitable. If you need any evidence, check the $$ to sponsor Lucas Oil Stadium here in Indy.

No doubt. But it's profitability to the consumer is in ignoring it.
