I heard about this stuff for a little while but had that mental block about
changing oil every 3,000 miles.Heres the link to the website
http://18.104.22.168/ or go to synfullube.com The site was was ok but the
product is incredible. I saw results right off the bat so I'm going to put all
of their products in my truck. Just thought everyone out there would want to at
least check this stuff out.
another name for amsoil is snake oil.before you go dumping it all over your
truck,check the certifications, and you will se that there are a lot better
oils out there at half the cost. valvoline, quaker state, castroil, and
mobile one are 4 that are rated better than amsoil, and i am sure there are
Do you know where I can find that certification? I've used all of those oils in
the past and have found that Amsoil makes my truck run the best.I know that
Mobile 1 has a big problem with eating your gaskets and seals due to the
detergents in it.So far,I haven't seen anything bad about Amsoil but would
really like to know where it is so I can research it myself. Thanks.
Hmm, you "KNOW" Mobil 1 eats gaskets and seals or you have "HEARD" it does.
There is a big difference. Mobil 1 meets or exceeds all industry
standards...all. That cannot be said about Amsoil though it does meet or
exceed some. I can promise you, Mobil 1 does not harm seals or gaskets.
you know what?!!!!!
I wouldnt buy Amsoil if it were on the shelf right next to Mobil1
Mainly because of A holes like you.
Speaking of which, can I buy Amsoil for 4.50 at Meijer?
And you are full of Shit about M1 eating gaskets and seals...
I know because I've been running it in three cars for more than 300kmiles.
No, you change your oil at 3000 mi. because it is acidic and has broken down
chemically. With synthetics, they don't break down chemically nearly as much
and they are able to add more additives that fight the acidity (with oil
from the ground, the additives are more expensive than the oil, so the oil
makers cannot add more additives and still have a competitive price). And,
of course, a good filter helps with the dirt.
With today's better oils (synthetic and ones from the ground) and additives,
you don't need to change your oil as often. BMW recommends changing it every
12,000 mi or so (they calculate the lifetime of the oil somehow while you
drive the car or truck).

You change oil every 3000 miles because it's dirty. Synthetic oil is
just as dirty at 3000 as any other.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Is there any car maker that reccomends a 3k mile oil change? Under
normal use Ford says 5k intervals for the Taurus.
Ford recommends 5K for my diesel F250 under normal conditions. Under
harsh conditions they recommend 3K miles. It is because the oil gets
contaminated more quickly from short trips or the oil breaks down more
quickly from the stress of towing.
