I'm gonna put some Lucas in the oil in my case and JD, can't spend the money to do a rebuild right now and this should help with oil consumption, even if it is only temporary.

I will not use "Slick 50" in anything, just my preference. I use the "Lucas" with no complaints in engines of all sizes. Seems to help with leakage and consumption.

long story short, after about 100 miles following the oil change, I'm losing power, mileage, hard to start and needing a new engine.
Restore has been a quiet positive... no fanfare, no hiuge results, just longer life in the cars I've run it in.

I don't believe the slick 50 of today is the same as the old stuff of twenty years ago.

Slick 50 never gave me any more mileage of noticeable power from an engine. I did notice it from Restore though. Thanks guys. Roger

We use Lucas in just about everything, engines, transmissions, differentials, hydraulics, etc...
Like Lucas myself. Use the injector cleaner once a month in the cars and trucks add half quart to every oil change. Used to work in a truck stop and drivers turned me on t9 it. Been using Lucas products for 20 yrs without complaint.

Was turned on to "Lucas" at PRI several years ago. I use it in everything from my GTs to my mud truck.

'Restore' and 'Marvel Mystery Oil' is just a quart can of kerosene. It works because it cleans out dirt/gum deposits in your motor. And doesn't leave behind any of its own junk. My father-in-law taught me a trick he learned when he was a mechanic in the Army a long time ago. when you buy a used car or truck or any motor for that matter with a lot of miles the first thing to do before changing the oil is to drain the oil and change the filter if it has one and fill it back up with kerosene. 5 quarts worth, or however much oil it is supposed to hold. Then start the motor and run it a few minutes...don't let the motor run long enough to warm up. This will loosen up dirt and gum deposits in the motor. Kerosene is an oil-based product and will not harm your motor. Drain out the kerosene and change the filter again and fill with oil. You are good to go.

Just out of curiosity have you ever compaired the shear strength of kerosene and Marvel Mystery oil?

When I was a teenager in the mid 60s, most of us teenagers were still running late 40s and up to about 60 model cars.
That was when car makers were introducing hydraulic lifters. The oils at that time were more often than not, not compatible with hydraulic lifters and they would sludge up very quickly.
Every Tom,Dick & Harry was mixing stuff, putting it in a can, and claiming it would turn your turtle 6 into a racer that would blow the King Richard Petty off the track and into the weeds. RITE!!!
Some of them did more damage than good.
For the most part I am a skeptic.
As for the MMO, yes there is some kerosene in it, and some other stuff.
You could not get a full quart of kerosene and the other additives in a quart bottle?
