  1. no way. he has never even mentioned the name of the man who engineered the oil stabilizer formula. Clinton Morey is the true inventor of Lucas Oil stabilizer. Forrest invented nothing. Even this article has been fooled by this scoundrel. He pirated the formula. I know because he made me help him do it. Forrest, you aren’t worth anything to me. You are unfair and greedy.
