Default LOVE my LUCAS!!!!

I swear by this stuff. i've been using LUCAS upper cylinder,injector cleaner,fuel treatment,for over a year now.engines running great.lately i've been giving it a dose every fillup.i swear it's running even better.when in park or at redlights,you can barely tell its running.on highway it is smooth as can be.

don't buy those little 5.25 oz bottles,buy quart or gallon.much more bang for the buck.
if you're having issues with your motor,it probably won't help that much.but if your motor is running true,it makes it even better.
this is what i've learned from using it.

Some people are convinced that adding Marvel Mystery oil to the gas in the tank, scAmsoil in the crankcase, and rotating lug nuts every 3,000 miles makes 'em purr like a kitten and mileage goes way up. Just sayin.

Blondes, brunettes, redheads...it's in the eye of the beholder. I'm partial to Seafoam myself, but I use acetone on occasion.

I'm partial to b12 chemtool but have found water a better substitute to clean the intake and cylinders. If you are dumping seadouche or b12 down the brake booster line you're DOING IT WRONG stop being cheap get some small diameter vacuum tubing and some vacuum adapters then hook the hose up to the brake booster line so that way the solvent is drawn into the engine.

Lucas is a good product. Quiets motor down If any lifter noise. I use this stuff called 4k it's a can of fuel injector cleaner that you dump in the tank. I mainly put it in when ill be doing mainly highway driving. Seems to have helped it a lot. I get the stuff for free. They use it at the nissan dealer and my dads a mechanic there so he brings some home. Running the cleaners every now and then aren't bad. Constantly using them though could possibly have effects on gaskets and such in the engine.

yes i may overdo it with LUCAS,but i can't complain,with my experience using it,my motor runs like new.
my ranger will probably be the last vehicle i ever buy,so i do tend to go to far in all maintenance areas.

I have use sea foam for years. One can per tank of fuel 1 or 2 times a year. One thing I found out it will clean off the Ex. sensor cause a engine light. Which you just cancel out!

Pelicanman & I have the same exact vehicles with the same mileage except for the color & cab size (I even have an A.R.E. topper). Been using Techron, but there was a video made by the Chris guy or whatever his name is that showed it didn't do much at all. Think I'll give the Lucas a try--wish that guy would do a test on the Lucas.

I think the ideas there as an upper cylinder lube, its pretty thick. But i like Lucuses oil stabilizer and chain lube. The stabalizer really helps on older engines and very useful in shared crankcases on motorcycles, protecting gears and easy shifting

Well i really don't care what some people think about LUCAS fuel treatment.
it WORKS FOR ME,i've had o problems.my engine runs like new,thats all i care about.like i said before if your motor has issues,it probably won't work that well.but if your motor is running well,it helps to keep it running that way.
see ya,old retired guy

Thats great, your engine would be running the same without it and you would have some extra money but hey, if the placebo effect works for you then congrats
