So I heard about this Lucus Oil additive stuff from my brother that it quieted his car down dramatically. My 96 STS has that lovely little clatter at idle so I said what the hell. It is like 6 or 7 bucks a quart and I forgot the ratio, but it boiled down to 1.3 quarts of this stuff and the rest, 10-40 that i was using. Sure enough, it made it quieter. BUT, after 1000 miles or so, the noise came back about 50% and remained that way. HERE IS THE KICKER. My motor would generally burn about a quart every 900-1000 miles. I checked it after 1k miles....all still there....cool......2000 miles...needed about 1/4 quart. 3000 miles, still full. Thsi stuff rocks. I have run it 3 times at 3000 mile oil changes and the bastard burns next to no oil. I love it.

I used to ad it to my 94 Concours, and it slowed the Northstar's leak quite a bit! I just adding maybe 8 ounces to my 86 Volvo to top it off, and it does idle quieter. It's real thick stuff though!
