its expensive because its the best. It works within the first 5 minutes of use, at least it did for me, i had my brother order me 2 bottles from Merchant Automotive (duramax vendor/shop) when he ordered some parts for his truck..

Does that rev-x stuff really work that well? How often do you need to be using it??? Seems pricey to run at every service interval... Sorry I'm not trying to hi-jack the thread it just seems logical. I've never liked the lucas oil additive although it wasn't the sythetic stuff and I never was using it in a PSD so I don't have a very good opinion for you. Sorry

Thanks,
Adam

Thanks for the feedback. I ran the regular Lucas in my old 7.3 and liked it but wasn't sure if it would be a good additive for the 6.0, I also questioned putting the synthetic blend in with my T-6 oil. Seemed like it would make the oil even thinner?
