Rev-X vs. Lucas Oil?

Anyone have any experiences with using Lucas Oil as an additive as opposed to Rev-X. I used Rev-X at my last oil chage and was impressed with the product but not so happy with the $75.00 price tag. I was thinking about using a bottle of Lucas Oil stabalizer to see if it worked as well as Rev-X. Anyone have any thoughts?

Thats very very bad for your injectors

What oil are you running with the Rev-X??

I have seen many post not to use Lucas "Oil" treatment in any PSD. I would stick to that advice.

I have used the Lucas "Fuel" treatment and would say it ran good with it. I just put a bottle of Red Line Diesel Fuel Catalyst and would say that From the seat of the pants Dyno, it did help some. Strange thing is the fact that it smokes more now. I had never seen smoke coming from my current tune. Only last a few seconds on the initial WOT starting off.

I have Lucas Oil SYNTHETIC oil treatment in mine now. It's the bottle that says it is safe for PSD's. The normal oil treatment is not.

However I won't be putting it in again. Not because I'm not happy with it, just because I've read so many conflicting views of it.

They are two very different products. I don't like the idea of a oil additive since our trucks see anywhere from 500-4000psi of pressure in the hp oil. I've seen the test with lucas and can only imagine what it would look like in my motor at full throttle. I don't have a issue at all with starting or injectors on this or my previous 04 so I never have seen the need to mess with the current 5k oil changes. personally the only additive I use is 2stroke oil and that is in the fuel. I don't care for diesel kleen, lucas or most of the others due to the fact they strip lubrication.

The Rev-X is the only oil additive I will endorse. Otherwise buy a good synthetic and leave it alone.

smart move synthetic/rev-x combo!

I'm switching everything I own over to amsoil/rev-x

If i don't get good results/extended drain intervals I'm switching to schaffer's ...the main reason most people stick with dino is it does work ok but it's cheap and they have had false statements drummed into their heads for 50 years .....about syn sludging motors!
