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

That's what I was wondering about. Nobody talks about the little gizmo in the parts store. grin2

The little white plastic gears that are being bathed in Lucas makes the oil roll over the top of them. grin2

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 LOL

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.

Actually there is a ZDDP additive they make. It might actually be something they sell that's worth buying, if you have a flat tappet High Performance engine. Please note the word might.

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.

This guy uses M1 15W-50 and Lucas Oil Stabilizer in a 2000 Dodge Caravan. That is a thick combo.

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.

That is because he used Lucas in the first place which caused his rings and valve guides to wear which in turn caused his engine to burn more oil, so now he has to use thicker oil and more of it.

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.
