We sell all kinds of it at work, some people come in and buy it by the gallon. I've never used it myself but I was thinking about getting some in the near future!

The Lucas does nothing and seafoam is very harsh on gaskets and seals.
Marvel Mystery Oil works great and is safer to use. Be cautious with Acetone.

The lucas stuff is more of an upper cylinder lubricant, but really why do you need upper cylinder lubricant? It does not even burn clean like stated on the bottle and is way overpriced in my opinion. I would not be suprised if the lucas stuff causes the plugs too foul up sooner.

It depends on what you are after, as stated above it is primarily an upper cylinder lubricant. If you want a product to clean your fuel system, give Red Line SI-1 a try.
