Got this deal on the Walmart website. 12 qts for $84.12.
Only $7.01 compared to the nearly $15/at in store. Also qualifies for free shipping!

That's still really expensive for what is essentially just a bottle of VI improver with no beneficial additives in it.

might as well spend 5$ on the pint of diesel fuel gas additive.

stuff is unneeded with less additives in it than normal motor oil.

What need is there to dilute your motor oil with this junk.

What is the reason that you are adding this to your oil?

Just noticed the cheaper price and thought I'd share for those interested. Figured that was the point of this forum.

Thanks for the tip !! Don't mind them, I use it also as well as red Hy-per lube oil additive and so have many others I know in the auto industry.

I own a repair shop and find it useful to stock up on these deals to keep prices down for my customers and keep some flush oil on hand. Some oil that isnt that great I will use for the initial warm up cycle after a head gasket job and the 500 miles break in period.

Ah yes, the "I personally hate Pennzoil" post but you don't feel the need to express your thoughts.

But Lucas oil stabilizer is okay? A major name brand, fully-formulated and licensed motor oil is hateful but an additive that only serves to dilute that licensed motor oil is worthy of promotion?

I'm sure some people like it and swear by it. You know? Like the Pennzoil people that like their brand. Walmart Super Tech isnt exactly the best thing out there either but some people like it. Makes no difference to me what other people like and use. As I said earlier I thought the point of this forum was to share the deals and promotions we all find to help one another out. I this thread is turning into something pointless like 2 individuals arguing what brand of truck is the best, GM or Ford.

I had no intention of being rude. I'm just calling out a scam product when I see it. All this stuff does is dilute your oil's additive package and increase the viscosity. When used at the "recommended" 20% treat rate, an oil with 800 ppm zinc gets knocked down to just 640 ppm. How is that benefiting anything? The viscosity increase doesn't even last as this stuff has really poor shear stability.

That would lubricate a lot of door hinges,etc. I used to like their stuff but after close examination, oil analysis and helpful bitog-nerds I learned it need and application are really quite small. Since then I have only two additives I will use and know their place. I think Lucas marketing is top notch but the days of going really thick are over for most applications. If you wanted something to "stabilize" I would look to adding a qt of Redline or Neo Synthetic with their esters and higher hths rating.

You assert someone is a snob when they avoid a very questionable product and warn about it?

Lucas formulates some great racing oils unfortunately boosted by sales of unbiquitous, inefffective and worthless additives.

Garbage. Unless maybe you are trying to cover up that bearing rap on the used car special out front.

That informs me not to go to your repair shop.
