Lucas oil stabilizer

Like the title says. Has anyone used this stuff in their tc88. I was reading the web site and it says great things about it and I was wondering if you have used it have you noticed a drop in oil temp , rise in oil pressure and a little more quite motor.

Ok, Lucas oil is supposed to be the best oil, right?

So... why does it need stabilizer? Is it somehow unstable? Makes no sense at all.

About every other tankful I use a few ounces of SeaFoam. The bike seems to run a touch better.

Snake Oil.

And Seafoam, a mixture of Alcohol,Naptha and Oil... What is special about that?

Leave that stuff on the shelf at the store...

Change your oil (any 20w50 is fine) every once in a while and ride regularly.

That`s all the engine needs.

Wouldn't touch the stuff. Just about all the synthetic oils on the market specifically say not to mix anything with them. There are many good synthetics & dino oils on the market, if you don't like what you're oil is doing change you're brand, don't try a home brew.

Well I was told once if that stuff was any good it would already be in the oil, Fuel to begin with.

Lucas

Both of my sons have a high horsepower drag car. One car runs low fours in the eighth and the other runs mid fours in the eighth. One is turbo and the other is blower. The guy that builds those motors always includes a quart of lucas in the oil within the motor when they get it from him. In other words if it is an eight quart pan seven are valvoline 20/50 racing oil and one is Lucas. He started using it because when he disassembles those motors the lubricant adheres significantly better to all parts needing lubrication than when those motors are disassembled with straight oil. I have always thought as several noted above the oil has got everything it needs and I have never done it in my normal motors. I think of those things as oil thickeners, but since my dyna is oil/air cooled and lubricated bearings are so important and with this summers heat in the southeast, I may consider it. At the very least I will always use a synthetic.

Just re-read your post. I use a couple of ounces of SeaFoam in the GAS, every other tankful. Nothing in the oil, I use synthetic.

Just see no need for it if you are using a good quality oil to begin with.

It's a redundancy to something that's already there......people add it thinking it can only help when in actuality it's a placebo.
