never used lucas but after switching from rotella to amsoil i'll never try anything else...no need to. 5w-40 in cold weather is awsome. starts down to -10 with no block heater. here in chicagoland its nice to push the remote start button and not worry about it

Not sure if Lucas plans on "meeting" or "exceeding" CJ-4 API classifications or not. Right now they are still showing CI-4. Not that CJ-4 is better because its not. Still...many are going to "need" CJ-4.

Anyhow...when I look at Lucas...I don't have any problems understanding why their prices are so high. They've got about 15 race cars to sponser and a new Indianapolis Colts stadium to build. Their price for a gallon of 15W40 is unreal at my local Napa. Further...their pour point is only -15. Delo or Rotella is listed in the -30's. It would be rare for me to see -30. But I've seen -10 many many times.

I've used Amsoil gear lubes many times. I like their products and would trust their engine oils. But the Lucas products just rub me wrong when I look at their site and their prices for what it is.

Is Lucas High TBN 15W40 Magnum even a synthetic base?

I've never read any comparison test concerning these two brands of oil. However, Lucas, Amsoil, Schaefer, and Royal Purple are all quality manufacturers. I'd guess that it's all preference.

I love my amsoil! My tuck runs smoother, starts easier, and no white smoke on a cold start.

Go to Amsoil site and you will see 5 gals. (2 2.5 gal jugs) 15/40 cost $127.00 or $13.00 cheaper.
