Re: Lucas pure synthetic oil stabilizer
I'll state this as simply as I can....
If you feel the need to run some sort of addititve or oil "helper", you are obviously not running the right oil.
There isn't an oil additive that ISN'T snake oil in my opinion.
Before someone gets made saying it worked fine for them, I ask, how did it work fine that the oil wouldn't have done just as well by itself? Most oil additives are nothing more than the same additives that the oil has in it. That's the GOOD ONES. The bad ones have things like teflon, chlorine, etc, that will destroy an engine.
There is no governing body of additives like those that make ratings for oil. I could bottle maple syrup as the miracle cure for all that ails in your engine. Unless it caused damage and you could prove it, I worry not about you suing me. They can make any claim they wish and it is up to you as the consumer to prove them false. Most folks don't have that kind kind of time or money to bother with it.
There have been a few that were bad enough for the government to get involved with, and good suits were brought by the FDC against Duralube, Slick 50, and several others for false advertisements as none of there claims could be backed up, tests were falsified, testimonies were paid for, etc. Do a search on the FDC.gov site.
