Ive heard all the stories about Lucas so I tested it. I was getting 13.7mpg in my diesel pickup. At 20,000 miles I started adding 8oz of lucas for every tank of fuel. I have a 100 gallon skid tank so the fuel that went into my tank was always mixed. I ran it for 10,000 miles +/-. After the 10,000 miles I still averaged 13.7mpg. Maybe im missing something but I sure didnt see any need to keep using it.

I tried that stuff for a long time, and didn't even help. I used seafoam once and a HUGE difference.

I will just leave this hear (not discrediting it's ability to clean injectors, but definitely not the combustion chamber)

Filling the tires with nitrogen made my truck ride better and get 2 mpg more! Well worth the $80 the dealers charge!
Just passing on this useful tip.
