Well, the webpage on Lucas is interesting. I would never think about adding that stuff to my oil, of course, but I would not call that report conclusive. The weak spot IMHO is a very generic design of the system, and no note on RPMs.
At what RPM does the aeration start? It is all about finding the balance between oil climbing and extensive air entrapment, in Lucas case.
In any case, I think car manufacturers are designing their mechanisms for use with standard oils, and oil companies are making those standards better and better. And those guys trying to "improve" things without being either engine or oil makers have nothing to do at the market.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
