The Lucas 10013 Fuel Treatment is designed to improve mileage and add power to your car’s performance. This is done by lowering emission and adding a special blend of additives and oil that do not contain any solvent. The product can be used for gas and diesel engines, fuel injected or carburetor. It is highly recommended for cars that use leaded fuel, LPG, or diesel because it prevents poor emission and counter acts against low sulfur problems.
Review of Lucas Oil 10013 Fuel Treatment
Lucas Oil 10013 Fuel Treatment, sold in gallon bottles is a special blend of additives and oils and contains zero solvents or alcohol. You can use it for gasoline, LPG, and diesel engines, fuel injected or carburetor.
The main objective of this treatment product is to clean your engine so it performs better. It claims to improve mileage and power while lowering emission. Vehicles that need to pass the regular emission test should buy the product because it will help you pass the stringent smog test.
As it cleans the engine, it also provides adequate lubrication making a good choice to add an engine tune-up.
On the positive side, it will help make the ride smoother but the mileage will barely improve. There are other factors that can affect mileage such as road conditions and driving habits making it difficult to gauge the effectiveness of the product.
In a test case done by a research company on 19 different fuel treatment products, Lucas came in at #14 which is not very impressive but not terrible. Also, it doesn’t make sense to use this product on brand new cars since the engine does not yet require cleaning. Based on the selling price, you get quite a bit from one gallon or an average of 6 months use based on half cup to one cup for every 10 gallons of fuel. There is no warranty on this product.
For cars that are over 3 years old, the Lucas Oil 10013 will improve the performance of your car in terms of a smoother ride. It may not necessarily improve mileage because it would depend on driving habits and terrain but it will lower emission. One gallon bottle will go a long way as you only put a small amount for every 10 gallons of fuel. It works on gas, diesel, and LPG engines.
