Do you believe this?

Some guy posted awhile back that he changes his fuel filter and fills the bowl up with Lucas conditioner and starts it up. Says it has to be warmed up or it will start hard. Hurt or help?

I use sea foam when I do mine aswell.

I can see the lucase possibly giving it that hard start at first because it has a very low flashpoint and is a very thick product which will make atamazation much harder

So does it probably help keep the bottom of the fuel filter housing cleaner. Will the o-rings etc. take that strength chemical in one big burst? Do you also add to the fuel tank after that? If it`s good I will try it too. Thanks guys.

Cool Lucas!

Hey Guys!

I have loaded my primary filter with Lucas Upper Cyl. Lube for years on all of my CATS.... Have never had any issues. And yes - I use it in the tank too. And I use it in my pickups too!

I have used Lucas products since about 1995/96.. And I have always have great results as far as I'm concerned.....


Hoss....
