I use it, use the synthetic tho. It actually says on the synthetic bottle that it is recommended for powerstrokes.

I have their gear oil in my truck, am about to order a case of transmission fluid for the truck, and will be switching to their 5w40 diesel oil my next oil change.


Make sure you get the synthetic stabilizer. The conventional bottle says right on the bottle to not use it in Powerstroke motors.

In an heui system I wouldn't run lucas. At my old job(gas mechanic) we figured lucas was no good because how thick it is, when we reserched it we found out lucas oil additive is a 220w... Think how well that helps your injectors that suck at cold firing with a 15w oil. Lucas blows in my book, I have seen it destroy numerous trannys because it is to thick, and it is hard on heui systems. Just because they recommend it doesn't mean crap, they are the ones trying to sell it to you.

Yup!!!!
Any additive that isnt designed with the pressure of our injectors in mind is bad. People can say "well, hell, I use it and my motor has 200k"....that doesnt mean anything. Look at the additve. Has it performed above the PSI that your injectors oil fire at? Do you ahve the stats and data on that?

Your 7.3 will love some synthetic oil. Thats about all I would put in there. The Revx is a good product but really helps the stiction issues with the 6.0. The 7.3 doesnt have as many stiction issues as 6L.

Wouldnt do it makes sense to keep that away from your truck. Even if someones grandfather has used it in everything for 40 years with no problem.....doesnt mean its good for your truck.

Well I already bought and pour Lucas oil pure synthetic when I changed oil past weekend. Couldn't afford $65 for rev-x. I paid $15 for Lucas oil. Maybe next oil change I just use oil that it.
