Re: Do Oil Additives Really Work?

On this subject. since i havent found it any where.

had to add Lucas to a truck the other day during a PM, so i now have a oil sample of it at CAT labs and will have a UOA on a clean sample of it.

lets see whats exactly in there! i still call BS on most additives.

Re: Do Oil Additives Really Work?

Only thing I have had any luck with is Rev-X. Yes I sell it so naturally I say that, but I let everyone else talk about it most of the time.

Re: Do Oil Additives Really Work?

I made a post / thread this afternoon on this.
I put a 16oz bottle of Marvel Mystery to a full tank. When I got less than a 1/2 of a tank the water in fuel warning came on. I bled the fuel filter this afternoon. I got a bit of water and crud. Looks to be dirt or rust. Smells of rust. Last time before this, I bled fue clear clean fuel came out and recently changed filters. I'm wondering if the MM loosen up the crud. Water and crud was about the size of a quarter. I filtered the crud and waiting to dry out for further investigation.

Re: Do Oil Additives Really Work?

Rob, Here is a virgin oil analysis of Lucas Oil Additive I did a few years ago. Let's see how the two compare when you get yours back.

Nothing but a big viscosity improver. 15W-40 viscosity (CST at 100 degrees C) ranges from 12.5 - 16.29 this stuff is 124+!! :eek

I can see using it in a 6.0L or a 7.3L dual HPOP setup that sheers oil, but you would have to time it right when the oil is close to the lower end of a 40 weight viscosity.
