anyone use Lucas?

I tried Lucas for the first time definitely runs more quiet, just replaced a quart of oil with the Lucas instead. Pros cons?

I don't know of the pro's & cons but I know people, including mechanics, that swear by Lucas.

I've been using Lucas for years in everything from diesels to hot rods turbo cars and my 94 Jeep. You can't go wrong with that stuff. Motor will run quieter and get better oil pressure !

I used Lucas until I switched engine oil to Royal Purple. I have nothing bad to say about Lucas, but I was amazed at how much smoother the engine runs with RP.

I'm trying to imagine how you could possibly misuse Lucas oil and kiss your engine goodbye.

Because of its viscosity. As long as you aren't half retarded and use it as its supposed to be used you'll never have an issue.
