LUCAS Synthetic Oil Stabilizer :)
on May 18, 2010
I use Lucas Oil Stabilizer in a 1996 Dodge Caravan, base model, 2.4 L DOHC 4 cyl with automatic. I started using Lucas' Synthetic Oil Stabilizer and Wal-Mart's Super Tech 10W-30 full synthetic oil when the vehicle had 140,000 miles on it. I purchased the van with 136,000 miles and ran a couple of regular oil changes through it to check the condition of the engine and flush some abuse out of it.
Between then and now the engine is much cleaner inside. It is quiet, smooth, and runs BETTER than ever! Part of this is due to good lubrication and partly to preventative maintenance. Take care of your vehicle! In conjunction with using the Lucas synthetic additive and synthetic oil I use an oversize oil filter. The OEM filter in Purolator is L10241. It is about HALF the size of a soda can. :( Checking, there is clearance on my engine for a Purolator L40316. It has the same gasket and threads as the L10241. Its original application was for Volvo turbo diesel. It is about FIVE times bigger and holds an extra quart of oil. :o Much improved volume of flow to the engine, especially cold, greater ability to hold dirt.
The van currently has over 193,000 miles on it. With 1,400 miles on the current oil change it has used about 5 OUNCES!
I attribute the long life of this engine in large part to Lucas Synthetic Oil Stabilizer.
I also use Lucas Synthetic Stabilizer and synthetic oil in my riding lawn mower and push mower.
