Pk Ave is doing better with new Front r hub installed (quiet driving again) and Mtr mount- no bad vibes today....LOL..
Its $1.39/L for 91 with no ethanol here. 87 & 89 have the "may contain up to 10% ethanol" tag. I've been using 89, but I may make the jump to 91 next fill up.

Travis You are lucky to have 91 octane and no ethanol.
I only have 94 octane to choose from without ethanol here.

Anyways, I said to myself, I wonder how long it will be before someone mention Lucas in the forum & then I will be able to post this photo....answer only a couple of days!
I've seen that. It'* been around for years!

^ ya I figured it was an older one...and that in the US many stores might have received one from the Lucas Reps. Very rare here indeed....
Now I wonder did they ever make an electronic version where the gears, turn continuously on their own, with a switch to turn off? Or only the manual hand crank ones ever seen?
Or is there any other new and improved versions to be found..I want one LOL..

Every other canadian tire and Napa stores around here had them. I remember playing with them when I was little lol. Pretty sure they were only hand crank, to prove the "Lucas" side moved more smoothly.
