I was told several times over a few years by truckers it was the FUEL treatment by the gallon. Not oil.

I've seen the gallons of oil treratment being put into engines at the truckstop. Hardly any use the injector treatment. Theres a whole isle at the local Pilot with LOS.

The Lucas stuff is mainly harmful to your wallet. There is no way any of us can home-brew better oil than the oil company chemists can mix up to meet a certain price point. If you want better oil, buy better oil.

That said, if you have a specific problem, a few specific products can address that problem. Kano Kreen and Marvel Mystery Oil, in separate ways, are somewhat effective in cleaning baked-in carbon from the piston ring grooves and allowing the rings to seal better. That might be a help for your oil consumption. Otherwise, use any good brand of oil of the viscosity recommended for your engine. Also, be sure your positive crankcase ventilation valve is clean and working properly; a gummed up one can also cause increased oil consumption.

If lucas sponsored the car, they probably have to use it. I keep anything lucas as far away from my car as possible

We were behind an IHRA top fuel car at the Mopar Nationals a few years back and when the whole crowd moved because they were going to fire the car, my buddy didn't. He got a face full of Nitro. He was tasting the stuff for a week, smelling it for days, LMAO! We teased the heck out of him.
