    Lucas products have been on the market for years and years, as an over the road trucker we use a lot of lucas products from oil treatment to fuel additives with positive results, Lucas products appears to be more than the "snake oils" that are being sold today

    But I wonder at what cost?
    If any of course and maybe nothing bad, just wonder what the long term use does.

    Personally any additive you constantly have to put in isn't for prolonged longevity. It's to cover up a problem not prevent or fix. Just like power steering, coolant and oil stop leak. It will only cover up not repair. And if it does seem to repair what can it cause to fail next. Say your water pump is leaking. Add stop leak. Blocks that leak. What's to say it doesn't and most of the time it does block the radiator. Now you went from a water pump to radiator and possibly head gaskets.

    This is just from my experience. My older cars used non synthetic (dino) oil. I would change the oil every 3,000 miles. No complaints about burning oil. I wouldn't have even known if I was burning oil as it was changed every two or three months. Newer cars that run synthetic oil have a change interval between 7,000 and 12,000 miles. A lot of time for you to notice if it's burning oil.

    Also, this is definitely not just a Cadillac problem. My wife's Acura TSX developed a large oil ingestion problem at around 70,000 miles. People on the Acura board complain about the K24 engine burning oil. Not everyone, but some.

    Just post your Fix, without having to PM.

    Would you say that catchcan would help oil consumption on a V8 SRX? It only burns oil when pushed hard, if it's babied it, the level stays the same. PCV tubes are clean.
