Sure, every company is going to say their product is the best; it's called advertising. The tests shown on the Amsoil website are standardized tests; they can't out and out lie to you (or the Federal Trade Commission would hammer them good). But, you have to expect a little embellishment here and there.Well, that's bound to be unbiased, isn't it? Cheers, -Kit
Unless he's got lab data to show it didn't need to be changed earlier, or he's already gotten 200,000 miles out of that truck with that oil change interval, this doesn't tell us my, IMHO.One of the owners at my dealership put Amsoil in his truck and claims it'll go over 12,000 between oil changes.
Covers? Describes, sure, but covers?Thruxton-Texas said:HarleyDavidsonism (no such word, just coined it a minute ago; but it covers a multitude of evils )
Picky,picky, picky! In the context of the posted subject, the word "covers" is "close enough for government work". The posts on these threads (including mine) are not expected to be complete or scholarly works. I think I do well for a semi-literate *******.:laughhard:.----James.Covers? Describes, sure, but covers?
One link beats a footnote; it's sorta like a reference . Seriously, the Amsoil company claims that regular change intervals can be DOUBLED; if you change the filter (theirs) at the regular intervals, or once yearly whichever comes first. I take this claim with a large grain of salt. But, if for some reason I should happen to go over the 6000 mile interval by a little; it's nice to know that an extra hundred miles or so won't abuse the engine. It's not a problem for me; I usually replenish the oil in my deep-fat frier with the drainings anyway. Some fellow told me that Amsoil makes the catfish taste better than Mobile 1 anyway.:biglaugh:------James.I want references! Footnotes!
Well, not usually. But when it comes to engine oil and doubling the change intervals, I'm going to need more than 'some guy did it.'
