Also does anyone know if valero gas is bad quality gas?
back to topic, if you use lucas that much you are prob just wasting your money. It will keep your injectors as clean as it can but you could be getting an extra 1-2 gallons of gas for the price of a bottle of lucas. I use it about every 4 or 5 fillups which would be saving you the equivalent of an entire tank of gas. The people at auto zone always try to sell me the crap and suggest adding it every time you change your oil.
I have thought about using seafoam but have chicken'd out every time. it can foul sensors and could end up being a major hassle. Just make sure to follow instructions and change the oil shortly after adding it.
there is a lot of bad reviews about valero gas but that can vary, some states dont test gas quality, most do and have stickers on the pumps. just avoid anything with ethenol, over time can cause problems. not to mention burns faster then gas so worse mpg.
I personally use Shell because they are ethenol free(and they are the only gas station i pass on the way to/from work.)
EDIT: I take the Shell statement back, the two in my town are ethenol free but not all are.
