ok,, I have a question.. not sure if this is the correct section or not.. my 2000 5.4 superduty has over 258K miles on it,, primarily a grocery getter/ DD for the wife. we dont drive it like we use to, but when I use it, I will pull stock trailer or some longer trips..

I have for years.. added Lucas Oil treatment to the oil.. and I credit my success with the engine for this.. but here is my concern.. when I change the oil,, since it is a older more used engine, it will "leak" when running straight oil in it,,, so I always add 1-2 quarts of lucas in it.. so no leaks..

my concern is with synthetics since they are "slicker" I heard they leak more for a well used engine... anything similar to Lucas? I know it is thicker in winter I have to keep it inside and warm for it to flow.. and when it does use a quart between changes.. I always add Lucas.

just wondering.. I like to keep this truck as long as possible and do not want a full engine replacement anytime soon. it runs great like it is.. and how I am doing it .. I just cannot run straight oil w/o leaks..

What oil are you using along with the Lucas oil treatment?

I'm am NOT a fan of Lucas additives. They dilute the additive in the oil. They simply just thicken the oil up.

Would it be bad for him to just use a thicker oil? It is an older engine.

thanks for the response.. I normally run 6 quarts castoil 5w30 and a quart of lucas oil treament. I use Wix filters...

when it gets low.. (usually 2500-3k) I will add another quart of lucas...

If I run straight oil.. 5w30 it will start leaking on the driveway.... and burn through or leak through it faster...

i liked their fuel additive better than i have PS/Diesel Kleen and Motorcrafts versions.. Tests ive seen for lucas said the reduced the lubricity in the diesel fluid where PS/DK only knocked it down to 10points under the industry's minimal standard. MC actually improved it.. (lucas was shown to be 5 spots below PS).. but the irony is.. i had my best mpg when i ran Lucas's additive than i have since i switched off of it. was getting 19-22mpg with it... when i ran PS/DK i dropped to 13mpg.. and MC im sitting at 16... those same tests claim Opti-lube's XDP is supposed to be the best.. Ams-oil's stuff wasnt even listed.
