Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your concern today. Please rate my assistance after we have concluded chatting.
It is not recommended to add lucas oil to existing used oil. The correct way to add lucas is to have your oil changed and substitute the amount of oil with the amount of lucas you want to do. It is best to substitute only about 1/2 - 1 quart of oil per oil change. Thanks, Eric
