The fuel pressure fault with reset then set off again but the code with be stored. Time to get a new sensor. My Xc90 did this for about a year. Changed it and the thing ran significantly better with allot smoother acceleration.

I never used Lucas but I always cut my oil with a little marvel mystery oil, I'd like to think it helps lol.

I don't use any oil additives, but changing the fps did clear up some codes we were having on our t5. Got the oem one on amazon for like 50 bucks.

When you say "a little," how much do you mean?

I usually replace one quart of oil with it for the past few oil changes.

See any measurable difference in performance, mpg, oil life, etc? I've always been curious about that stuff but never risked it.

I honestly can't say for sure It's ran smooth with it for the past 3 oil changes and I notice my oil doesn't look as used when changing it but than again I change my oil every 2-3 months anyways.

Just to further comment... I've used oil additives. My car has had Mobil 1 and Motorcraft synthetic (dealer). Never had an issue related to oil and life has been fine.
