lucas treatment was proven to create lot's of bubbles (gets foamy) - there is a video of an experiment somewhere, perhaps on bob's the oil guy's website.

just use Mobil 1 or Amsoil and don't change it too often (every 6mnths is good enough or 15 Kkm) - there are disadvantages besides spending more money to changing oil too often

if you wanna know more visit Bob the oil guy's website and forum

just take it to crappy tire when they are closed and put it by the bay doors... mechanics will see it in the morning and get rid of it... it's only a dollar a litre to recycle but why should u have to pay to save the environment?
