One shot additive to engine oil adds power and reduces wear


Date: 26-Feb-2020

A new one-shot engine oil additive for modern engines, is designed to help reduce emissions and protect against dry starts – one of the major causes of engine wear and tear.

Lucas Oil has launched a new one-shot engine oil additive, designed to increase engine protection. Low Viscosity Stabilizer is a premium synthetic engine oil additive that delivers a range of additional benefits. These help to control emissions, restore lost engine power and protect against dry starts.

It is designed for a wide range of lower viscosity synthetic engine oils such as 5w20, 0w30, 0w20 and even 0w-16, making it perfect for use in hybrid cars. Low Viscosity Stabilizer improves oil dispersity inside the engine. This reduces sludge and varnish production inside the engine block, which helps to reduce friction, improve performance and increase efficiency. At the same time, oil oxidisation is inhibited, which extends the protective lifetime of the oil.

Supplied in handy and recyclable 355ml metal containers, Low Viscosity Stabilizer  is designed to be added at each oil change. A key benefit is that its use as an additive will not void a new car warranty. It will not be detected by viscosity sensors. 

In new engines, the build-up of carbon is prevented, ensuring that new car fuel economy and power levels and are maintained. In untreated or older engines, fuel economy and lost power levels are restored by the removal of pre-existing carbon deposits. This also helps to reduce harmful emissions. 

A key performance feature of Low Viscosity Stabilizer is the ability to deliver protection against dry starts - the number 1 cause of damage to new engines.

Dry starts may occur after short or long periods of engine inactivity, when the oil drains down into the sump. Low Viscosity Stabilizer ensures that a protective film remains over each moving part, so that at the re-start, all moving parts are protected.
