Are products such as Lucas Oil or similar that promises better protection in engines are worth it or not? Thanks! Sandip

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Audra Fordin, Owner at Great Bear Auto Shop Good Afternoon Sandip, Great question! The additives available for cars are all a matter of opinion whether or not they are beneficial to the system they are added to. That being said, I have two opinions. First, if it was so good, why are the manufacturers not putting it into the car straight from the factory? The second is, if it does not hurt and is designed to help, its worth a try.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube All quality oils will protect your engine. Use the oil that*s right for your engine. That info can be found in your owners manual

Diane Larson, Owner/Manager at Larson's Service Hi Sandip:) It really depends on which products, how much they cost and what you are trying to accomplish! Yes, there are some very good products that do as they claim in offering better protection:) And some that may not..... Best to talk to your technician who can offer advice on which products may be worth the cost in protecting your investment.

Laurie Sarno, Co-Owner at Super Girls Auto Generally not. Lubricants sold by major oil companies meet or exceed the latest manufacture requirements for protection & viscosity breakdown (oil thinning). Any synthetic oil will provide protection equal or better than any additive.
