I was surprised by the air bubbles when he was doing the wear scars.

But what does all this no oil running mean??? No useful info to me at all. I've used STP before in a engine to get oil pressure up but that's all, and it did get the oil pressure up. Waste of time and money. popcorn

He needed a control engine with neither stp or Lucas in it. Still the Lucas ran 21 minutes to the 12 minutes of the STP. Thats interesting that there was a difference at all.

He has the control in this video. 10:16 onward.

The control engine died at 38 minutes 6 seconds with straight 10w30 oil.

Neither one would blow your engine up if used as directed. Both are probably Ok as a top off, and would improve viscosity (and some of the additives) of a depleted, sheared down oil. That would buy you a little time to do an OC soon.

Personally, I would much rather top off with a SAE 30wt. or SAE 40wt.

It's interesting though that the Bestline treated motor oil engine ran for as long as it did in comparison. (2nd video)

It died at 71 minutes even! crzy

I think I'll just keep oil in my OPE. It'll run hundreds of hours that way

This is entertaining, but not really sure what it proves.

Restore fixed a diesel tractor for him as well in one of his videos, was really surprised! I think almost 65 psi of compression!
