    Motor Oil, Lucas, and your testamonials

    I thought it would be cool if everyone would post their testamonials on their favorite products. In order to do this post your favorite product, and a time you used it and why its so great. Here are a few of mine.

    Lucas oil treatment.
    The first year I had my dirt track car it sat for 3 months over the winter. It had not had any lucas in it. When I ripped into the engine there was actually surface rust on the top of the heads. The second year I had ran Lucas oil treatment in it. The car sat for 4 months this time and when I pulled the valve covers the top of the heads were still oily. The lucas really does bond to the metal.

    Valvoline racing oil(which I run in my LS1 trans am) Ive tried conventional motor oil in my dirt track cars. My cars had a habit of running hot, 220 to 240. The convential oils would burn up after 1 or 2 races. I started running the valvoline racing oil. After 2 months I would drain it and throw it in my pickup because it still looked brand new.

    Liquid wrench. I had a wheel stuck on a car. It was rusted to the drum. Kicking it, sledge hammers, nothing would budge it. I sprayed it with liqued wrench and walked away. 10 mins later it fell off.

    if you think liquid wrench is good you should try pb blaster.......that stuff is awesome. I used to be a liquid wrench person until I had trouble getting a bolt free and bought pb blaster, no comparison. PB blaster is much much better.

    I use the Lucas, because its my name, just seems like its calling out to me....

    We had a older ford F-150 in the shop, the guy wanted to replace the engine becasue it had low oil pressure (around 10-15 psi at idle, which is fine at idle anyways) but some lucas in with the new oil, and the the oil pressure never dipped lower than 30psi again. The stuff seems to be pretty good in my book anyways. Wonder what sarge's oppion on Lucas is?

    I maybe wrong but all Lucas does is make the oil thicker....you could save money and just use 20w50.

    Not to get to far of topic but a guy from BG products came by work the other day and did a bearing test on Penzoil Plat. and Mobil 1. If your not familiar with the test you pour a few ounces of oil into this small holder..as it spins it picks up the oil and covers the bearing with oil. next you apply pressure on the bearing and wait to see when the bearing fails (comes to a complete stop) the PP failed at 23 ft lbs of pressure which according to the person doing the test was HORRIBLE! We went to try the M1 but he got a short in the switch and couldn't do the test. He mentioned that conventional oil with 2 drops of MOA (additive) didn't fail until 70 ft lbs of pressure. When I see him again I will have him do the M1 and see where it fails at.

    If you want to know what Lucas really does, check out my posts in the UOA sticky. It is nothing more than a thick base oil. Sarge calls it "pure liquid garbage". All it does is thicken your oil.

    Lucas is more than just thick oil. I ran 20w50 valvoline racing 0il in the race car and it would drain to the bottom and leave the top dry after a few months. The lucas mixed with the oil would bond to the metal and nothing would ever be dry. Like I said it sat for four months and everything was still oily when I pulled it apart, as compared to dry and rusty after 3 months with no lucas but the same oil.

    Hype meets fact when you have your oil analyzed. Chemistry does not lie. All Lucas does is thicken your oil. If it did anything else, it would show as reduced wear.
