I have been trying to search info on lucas oil stabilizer and its hard to come up with anything because all of the research was done so many years ago.

Could you guys help me compile data in this thread please? Like voas and uoas data sheets....stuff that.

It would be cool to get all the FACTS in one thread.


Now I know its not very well respected here but lets not have a flame war or arguement here please. Im already assuming everyone feels its junk and leave it on the shelf and oil doesn't need to be stabilized so theres no need for those comments...

It sounds like it is for a problem that doesn't exist anymore. What does Lucas claim? When did they originally make their claims and who has verified or tested their products?
Sometimes old products work well on old engines...

At least you get a response. People hate it so much that they dont even respond to my questions. I started about five threads on Lucas in a two week period because nobody would say anything and within 36hrs. each time my question was five pages back. I finally gave up. I think its funny that people think its so bad, but have no facts to back it up. Obviously- multiple treads and no response..........

Isnt it basically thick oil with zero additives,and thus when added to oil it dillutes the ad pack and does little to no good? It supposibly churns oil into air bubbles.I think its main claim to fame would be putting it into worn out engines to slow the oil leaks/burning...

Whats good about it? unless you have a 1968 that uses oil like crazy or has no oil pressure there is no use for the stuff, contains basically no additives, its useless.

Not too many uoa results, because most informed members here won't let a bottle within 50 feet of their oil cap.

Coincidently I did stumble across a post by bob on the subject. He said LOS was some kind of oil (dont remember the name he used) but he said its actually an additive in rearend oils. Im sure in much smaller amounts tho. And its used to make the gear oil climb.....
