I don't see any reason to.

Snake oil.


If your engine is high mileage and has low oil pressure and maybe leaks some, you can run a higher viscosity oil.

I just tried it on 2 of my high milage vehicles. There was a sale buy 1 get 1 free. So far so good. Except the power steering hose blew on one car.

I use it in my hot rods and my drivers. Many of the engine shops I know of use it as assembly lube. I don't know what is in it, but it doesn't burn easily at all. It works pretty well in my experience.

I've tried it, that sucker is thick! I never had any issues running it in an old Buick I had.

I don't use it in my "newer" vehicles.

+1 I use a 25% blend in my diesel trucks. So far i am at about 265K on lucas in diesel trucks and it is good stuff.

the wife's 92 runner was a oil burnin' sum bitch and was always low on pressure, so i tried a 40% blend in that, and it did the trick. Consistant, good oil pressure, and it doesn't consume near as much anymore.

I like lucas.

EDIT:

BTW, if you want a tip on getting that sticky shit into your motor, pour a half quart motor oil into the motor, and then fill up that quart with lucas, and shake for about 15 seconds. pours in much easier. you can cut the top off the lucas, and just dump and squeeze.

never use additives in oil, it causes it to foam up. just get a good high mileage oil and youll be good. also, if you want it to keep going strong, i reccomend a regular sea foam treatment.

I retail it - mostly for my customers with high mileage vehicles. I use it in my Rodeo too. As of late, I've been using LUCAS Gun Lube too

I just pour oil in when the lifter noise gets too loud.

I stopped leaving oil slicks in the parking lot once I parked over the DRAINS TO SALMON HABITAT sign.

My 1.6L Nissan engine has 209,000mi on a steady diet of Mobil One.

Never felt the need for additives.

Have used it in fleet trucks for many years.......good stuff. Owned a ford pu some time ago with a rod knock at start up, added lucas w/ every oil change, no rod noise, and ran engine for years that way.

I don't use it in anything I own. I've got a '97 5.4 liter Ford that's got 180K-something on it with nothing but regular oil changes. I use Motorcraft filters and whatever oil I had on hand at the time, synthetic, conventional, .99 cent parts store oil or name brands. Doesn't leak a drop, doesn't burn a drop.
