I'm with Tallsville. It's up to you how you spend your money and if fuel additives don't hurt the o-rings etc then so be it.

Either 1) continued use will slowly undo the tarnish and buildup over time or 2) you will reach a point of no more benefit and pay for a placebo.

I think if Lucas \ Berrymens \ Techron \ 3M \ Seafoam is used for 4 tanks of gas over 4 weeks then it may be time to fall back to the quarterly application schedule.

I either didn't read directions all the way or just missed the schedule...

Lucas Oil/5.25 oz. fuel treatment

Features & Benefits


Lucas upper cylinder lubricant fuel treatment is formulated for gasoline and diesel engines. It does not contain harmful solvents or alcohol. This product is a blend of heat resistant, super slick oils and additives with a high detergent action that cleans and lubricates the fuel system.
  • Causes fuel to burn more efficiently for greater fuel economy and fewer emissions
  • Negates the harmful effects of reformulated gasoline
  • Neutralizes the harmful effects of ultra low sulfur diesel fuel
  • Lubricates rings and cylinder walls for longer life
  • Cleans and lubricates carburetors, injectors, and valve seats
  • Eliminates need for higher octane fuel


There's no hard rule on how often you use a fuel additive. If you think you're getting your money's worth and there's no harm or even additional benefits then it's a person choice.

I scrub my stainless steel pots and pans with a baby powder paste to shine them up. Do I do this every single time I use a pot or pan? Nopers, but I do it occasionally and it's good for a while. Even if the fuel additive doesn't have any cleaning to do, in the case of Lucas it claims to lubricate the upper cylinder wall which is the same reason I like MMO.

So no harm no foul.


(no pun intended)
