This is the most ignorant website ive ever seen in my life bunch of idiots on here. Whoever pays for this website is wasting their money on a bunch of junk.Provide proof of an engine failure from lucas since you say its garbage back up your story with some evidence of a engine failure if its so bad like you claim. The lucas i use has zddp in it.You Know i wonder something if half of you in here talking [censored] dont use a lucas oil product an engine oil not an additive but lucas motor oil.
You know, the thread was about Lucas Oil Stabilizer, not Lucas the brand in of itself.
Which Lucas product do you use that contains zinc? There, was that so hard guy? What 'good' Lucas product are you having some success with?
..and I totally get the 'argument' about it having 'some' place, if you were stranded and needed a way to thicken up the oil in order to keep an old beater running, but other that that the original topic was about the 'additive-less' Lucas Oil Stabilizer.
Now...I would conversely like to see a VOA on their 'Full Synthetic' Oil Stabilizer. It doesn't seem as thick, etc. Is THAT what you are using?
I think he's either rambling or ranting about their Break in Additive which is a ZDDP additive, or maybe their oil? I'm pretty sure it's their oil. But then again according to him I'm an Idiot, so it could be anything. Maybe the mods will launch him before he really gets out of hand. LOL
While I do not use Lucas products I do amuse myself with their test gizmo (with the gears and cranks) while waiting for the parts guy to get something.
Ditto, and I give them an A+ for marketing. lol
There is no doubt they know how to market their products.
Ahhh! the good old Lucas cavitation machine. 'cause bubbly froth is what I want to form a hydrodynamic wedge.
It does have soap bubbles come out of it when you pour it out. That it all it is.. straight-80wt. "oil" that looks like aged maple syrup and pours out accordingly, and soap. Seriously. Soap. Like blowing through a kid's bubbles wand. I remember that well
It has been proven it foams up oil. NOT a good thing There IS no Lucas that has ZDDP (and no car today needs ANY zddp) They make other additives for transmission to thicken it up.. questionable, but sometimes you wont gethurt putting it in, depends (?)
I have had it "fix" exactly ONE car, and that car was a miracle it was running. It died the next day.
The thick oil stigma remains, and that is why Lucas sells.
Has anyone here had rod knock and tried lucas? And i dont mean so far gone nothing will help it. I for one have had rod knock and it worked
Yep, so would using a higher viscosity normal oil, a 40 wt or 50 wt, but that would cost the same as normal oil. Any of these thickeners--Lucas, STP, Hilton Hyper-Lube, etc.--are good for quieting a bad engine before a quick sale to a stranger when you don't want to spend the money for an oil change.
Extra ZDDP in every engine is just as important as taking a strong drink of whiskey every night to keep the wild elephants away. Worked so far, I ain't quitt'n now....
Actually, I would use Lucas Oil Stabilizer the next time I run across an unstable oil, if I ever do run across an unstable oil, which I haven't yet.
I think that the oil companies pay Lucas to haul that junk away, and Lucas bottles it and sells it to truck drivers. Who has a higher IQ, a truck driver or a house painter?
OK I know not all truck drivers are dummies.
Hey, hey, hey!! I own and drive a semi truck and I resemble that remark!
Seriously though, it is amazing the number of truck drivers that swear by Lucas OS. I never did. Gave it a thought or two several years ago, but never used it.
Gonna be mighty hard for Lucas to claim I need the stuff. I put 1.4 million miles on my last engine and it was never opened up for repairs. Still got respectable fuel mileage and was reasonable on oil consumption. I have 751,000 miles on my present engine with UOA's looking as good as when it had 300,000 miles. Just using Allied Oil and Supply HDEO 15w40 at under $10 a gallon delivered to the house free of charge.
