Default Lucas Oil Stabilizer.

I keep seeing these Lucas oil stabilizer bottles in Advanced Auto and I was wondering if it helps at all and if it is good or if it is just a scam.

The lucas stuff is good quality product

My buddy runs it in his old chevy truck and his engine is still running strong 300K miles

He also went from 3K miles intervals to around 7K. I have done oil sampling for him at work and his oil is still good

I would read this before using...
What about Additives?

I wouldn't use it. Using the right oil and oil change intervals for your driving conditions is the best you can do for your truck. Most additives are thick and heavy. I wouldn't want that in my engine on a cold weather start up. Read the other info on Bob the Oil Guys website about the oils and make your own informed decision.

It my help, but keep in mind that the internal combustion engine has been around and survived just fine long before oil additives ever came on the market.

My daughter has my 93 S10 and it has 178,000 and still going strong. I've only run Mobil 1 with an AC-Delco filter changing it every 5,000. Engine still looks like new inside.

My Ranger has 98,000 running Mobil 1 with a Motorcraft filter with no problems. I just sold my BII (I was second owner) with 147,000 running Motorcraft synthetic blend and Motorcraft filter and its was still running strong. Use a good quality oil and filter with a regular maintenance schedule for oil changes, tune ups, etc. and you can expect a lot trouble free miles.
