Default Lucas Oil products...

Anyone else out there run Lucas Oil products in their rigs?

The little gear oil demo that they used to have convienced me to buy some for the 40 a long time ago and I have run it since.

Then I had a small Power Steering leak at the input shaft of the gear box... added one little bottle of Lucas' Oil PS stop leak and the thing hasn't lost a drop since.

I used to think most additives were a little bit of truth with a lot of hype, but man, I really like the Lucas stuff.

Any other's, comments?

Discuss...

i've started using their fuel injection cleaner per some suggestions in another thread, so far it hasn't seemed to hurt anything, though the benefits are a little intangible as well...

BITOG reports foaming in gear applications, resulting in reduced lubrication, IIRC. The gear demo thing is nothing like the real thing.

I've used the power steering additive with good luck but I would not call it a valid solution over a proper repair.
