I was at a auto parts store today and read everything printed on the Lucas bottle. No where did it say that it meets any requirement of any engine Manufacturer as far as oil is concerned.

Here's a couple of interesting reads. And I stated earlier in this thread that I'm not a fan.

And this one.

Here's my thoughts. I put it in my T150, D20, Engine, and used the Hub Oil to top off my diffs. Hub oil is supposed to be OK in drives, not just hubs. I later checked my fluids, and the CJ had been parked all day at work and after I pulled it into the shop to check it I found the trans foamed out of the fill hole. I used a 50/50 blend of Lucas and spec'd gear oil. Shortly after that I had to replace the T150 from losing 2nd gear, it started jumping out of 2nd and then it progressed to not going in anymore. Worn forks, but I do not feel secure in the fact that I saw the foamy oil like Bob The Oil Guy first warned about. I have not seen it in the axles or engine.

I do use 15w40 Diesel oil, with maybe a touch of Lucas in it. I just did a full qt of it in this last oil change. Still get a tap in the engine, with hot oil at 10PSI at idle and maybe 30-40PSI over 1500RPM.

The Lucas to me is free, it is leftovers from the times I put it in the semi trucks at work. Many drivers swear by it. I have seen trailer hubs and spindles saved by the Hub Oil being used. Personally I haven't seen any good in my CJ, and the only factual provable bad is that foamy trans gear oil. I just don't put it in my transmissions anymore. I figure the gears are just spinning and meshing so fast they whip the oil into foam, where a drive or engine doesn't since they spin slower.
