Lucas Oil - in noisy transmission?

The internet is a very powerful and helpful tool as everyone who has
used this list to track down a problem knows. But at the same time
anyone can start up their own WEB site, do a few 'studies' and publish
them.

Is this site recognized by any official testing agency? Were there any
witnesses to the claims made? Do the photos tell the whole story? For
example even though the full synthetic didn't appear to be climbing the
gears, does that mean that they weren't coated and fully protected? Can
we be sure that the lighter colour was air entrapped in the oil, or is
it possible that the synthetic oil has simply changed colour due to the
addition of Lucas?

I have no connection with Lucas, but many people speak highly of their
products. I have used the Injection cleaner and their various products
to renew worn seals in the engine, transmission and power steering. They
appear to work for me, but like 'BOBISTHEOILGUY' I did not use rigorous
scientific methods either :-)

George
