    I've never been a fan of additives.

    Yeah, I always assumed that additives were snake oil, but here is the final verdict. Wow!

    I have been using half a quart of Lucas in every oil change, mostly due to my bad VSS. I have yet to have a issue with it. To be honest these are just some pictures. So until i see it myself i am gonna keep using it.
    Your 1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL is one of 4310 that received VIN numbers. Based on the order of the serial numbers, your car was the 2685th out of the 4310 that were made that year.

    I would be more worried about a test on bearings than a test on gears. I mean I know it still says something...but nothing special in our case.

    Lucas is great for specific applications, and they have never been cited for FTC violations.
