Default Re: Lucas fuel conditioner

I didn't see any improvement in mine but I started using it in my gassers and it helps the intank electric fuel pumps. One has 140k and one at 176k on these fuel pumps. It actually helped the pressure on the 140k pump.

Really? no improvement eh? That's too bad. You did'nt notice any power increase?

Speaking of fuel PSI; My fuel PSI went up 2 PSI in the last 3 weeks! It's working! [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif[/img]

Well I don't think anyone would be disapointed if they try it.
As most of you know I've been trying to improve my MPG since I discovered this site. My truck was getting 13 to 13.5 MPG at best. About 2 months ago (3 tanks) I started putting Lucas fuel additive into the tank. The first time I checked MPG it went up about 1.5 MPG. I filled up yesterday and checked it,my MPG is now up to 17.5. I would have been tickled pink to get 15 MPG but 17.5 !!! WOW !!! I'm 'bout to go crazy with pride. Never thought I'd see that kind of MPG increase. Hopefully there's more to come.

There is a local desiel mechanic around here ,that if you come in with injector or fuel system problems #1)check filter, #2)he sells a gallon of LUCAS and says to put it all in with a full tank, #3)most problems are cured.
