Look also here: 


Here's a chart listing the zinc content of all the Lucasoil products. Down in 
the lower right corner there's mention of a Lucas zinc additive. Looks like 2 
oz of that, per oil change, would make any of our oil options good. (The 
Hemmings article seems to say that 1200 ppm is sufficient. I wonder what 
that bottle costs?  

I have serious doubts about the other Lucas additive, the one they say you 
can add to either the gas or the oil. That seems really odd.
