Anybody else out there try this stuff. I used it in my old car and seemed to work but I didn't keep any records of the fuel mileage. The engine seemed to be smoother and believe it or not more responsive(but I did use it with Red Line Oil so it could have been that) I read that this stuff is the Guiness book of world records for the most efficient lubricant. If you are interested here is where I bought it.

What's with the snake oil thing. I never understood the term?

Way back in the day, traveling salesmen would sell vials that could cure anything you could think of, but it didn't do a damn thing. What was in those vials? Snake oil.

This may very well be snake oil but I thought that it actually worked. If you go to their website they say the U.S and Canadian governments have had positive results using it and they also have(or used to) a link to a webpage that should other additive companies being sued by the government for false adverising.

Ahh OK. I guess I knew that but didn't put the 2 together since we're always talking about oil when we say snake oil. It was confusing to me I guess. Maybe I was just being dumb.
Well I don't know about this Tufoil but I do like Lucas products and I do think they help.

Not bashing Lucas or anything, but I was reading up on good brands of dino oil yesterday and came across this on Lucas. Interesting to say the least.

That is interesting what that guy found. Is nice to have actual evidence of what will happen when Lucas or other additives are added to oil.

"Tufoil" is too gumpy a name for me to put it in anything.Don't mess with Binky Bear!

^^ I agree though, I don't want my oil to be too "tuf".

I have a 1993 fleetwood with 263000 miles on it.I bought it new and have been using tufoil since 1995. I searched tufoil on ebay and found it for 16.00 with shipping. It still runs great and doesn't burn any oil. I seem to believe that this stuff works. The motor is so quiet. My freind bought a 1995 fleetwood and the motor has 168000 miles on it and you can really hear the lifters chattering. He always changed the oil like me but he never added anything. He now uses tufoil and I hope it helps him.
