its works wonders on engines that were siezed at one time, run some marvel thorugh get it spinning again, and before the first crank add some and you cant tell it was ever siezed up. Ive never used it on a car that worked lol, but Im sure it woul work well

That is a very good question that I would love to see some scientific evidence of. Not sure what diffrence the product can make by soaking into the metal like it claims. So far everyone heard good things about it but no one has ever taken the step to actually use it.

Just do regular oil changes and you should never have issues. I always use Lucas Oil stabalizer at each one of my oil changes, not even sure how well that works until I tear the motor apart.

I almost bought some at O'rielly's the other day but the retard at the counter was asking me about my mustang and then tried to tell me that if I took off the serpentine belt it would give me 50 extra HP b/c it eliminates all the worthless crap driven by the serpentine belt. Needless to say I left after that and didn't buy anything from there and won't ever again probably

all lucas does is exactly what the name says. It stabilizes the viscosity of the oil. which does make a difference if you change your oil more than regular. the friction breaks down the oil one way or the other. I haven't had personal experience with zmax but I have heard good things about it. Never anything bad. Dont know if I personally would pay 30 for a basic pentrating oil though

I've seen a lot of tests on fuel and oil additives that were claimed to increase MPG. None of them did anything measurable. ZMax is going to have a hard time proving to me that they're not selling znake oil.
