You know they have those Oil Checkpoints set along the interstate. I hate when I get caught running the non street legal oil in my street car...Sorry, had to go with it...

hi, I have been usuing the lucas oil stabilizer also in all my vehicles, and some of them now have over 200 thousand miles, so ofcourse i swear by it, i always change my oil, with whatever oil i am useing(valvoline straight 50 wt in race car)(and castrol in everything else) and then the lucas oil stabilizer also!!! Neaver had any trouble and will not stop usuing it!!!I have over 20 races on the race car motor and everything looks the same as the day i put it in. I also work at a lube center for several years, and have seen the inside of many different motors that were ran exclusively on different brands of oil either my own or customers vehicles, and will only use catrol oil because of what i saw, the valvoline in the race car is what my friend uses in his, and so i thought i would try it because so far it is the only oil i can get here in the 50wt, and so far so good, but i always add the lucas oil stabilizer!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the valvoline non street legal oil contains zinc (very good for cam break in). the EPA does not allow zinc to be used in passanger vehicle oil anymore. diesel oils such as rottela oil still have zinc in them but that is soon to get faded out as well. thats why you see the "non street legal" labeling on valvoline. plus im sure its good for marketing!

I use the lucas stabilizer w/20-50 in the crankcase along with using it in the rearend along with gear lube and everything looks great when disassembled. Good Luck in 05.

My engine guy insists on running straight lucas 50 weight. Gotta admit the bearings look so smoooooth and pretty.

He pays for the oil so,...
