    I have been using Lucas products in my cars for years and have had excellent results. My previous cars have had over 500000 kms and no oil burning issues, I also use their fuel cleaner and notice crisper takeoffs and a better running engine.
    Just an opinion.

    Re: TECHRON fuel additive

    My girlfriend's stepdad who is a mechanic recommended this stuff when i was driving my Caprice. I haven't put any in my Caddy. I'll have to go buy a bottle the next time I fill up.

    I use only 91 V-Power from Shell. I'm pretty much easy on the car and I get avg of 20mpg and @ 65mph on Cruise Control gives me 24mpg.

    Well thats only because they use unilateral phase detractors. You have to use the cardinal grammeters to calibrate the osmolality of the dingle arm in relation to the muffler bearing. Cmon man, this is internal combustion 101.

    I've had good results with Techron too. If you have an Advance Auto Parts in your area they often put the 12oz bottles on sale for $4 (50% off). So for $8 you get 24oz compared to the 20oz bottle which is normally $12 but sometimes on sale for $8.

    I put B-12 in my old Cutlass twice and both times I had a clogged fuel filter within 100 miles. Maybe it loosened up gum in the tank? It also seemed to run smoother, but only while it was in the tank.

    Call me crazy but I had a p0420 code for my Catalytic converter and I filled up with chevron techron 87 octane and after drivin about 20 miles my engine light went off and the p0420 code is history. I'm convinced
