Independant AMSOIL Dealer
Amsoil jerks have been spamming newsgroups for years. And people have
complained to Amsoil, Inc., countless times all to no avail. As Bret
said, spamming is part of the Amsoil standard operating procedure.
Amsoil could never compete if they were forced to use normal marketing
You shouldn't be surprised. It takes all of 10 seconds to fire off a
canned response to a complaint. Don't hold your breath waiting for
them to take action.
MLMs really don't care about losing "potential customers". People who
complain about the marketing tactics are merely people who have been
reached by "The Message" but are not buyers. For every 10 people
turned off by their tactics, one may complain, and one may actually
buy the stuff (why anybody would use an oil that's not API certified
is beyond me). Once you buy, you're deluged with crap to get you to
buy again. Or better yet -- become a dealer so you, too, may share in
the great riches realized by distributing their Superior Product.
To read what the dealers spam across Usenet it like listening to
castrated Heaven's Gate cult members praising Ti & Do and inviting you
along for a ride on their comet. They really don't care what you
think of them -- they only want you to validate their lifestyle. And
to an MLM dealer, that means buying his product.

I agree with the comment on spammers. But the funny thing about API is that
at least some of the AMSOIL products are API certified. Check out
http://eolcs.api.org /, which is the website of the API's Engine Oil
Licensing and Certification System Directory of Licensees. Click on the
links to view either the "Companies that are Engine Oil Licensees" or "Brand
Names belonging to Engine Oil Licensees".
Not a fan of AMSOIL and have never used it. I usually fill the crankcase
with either Quaker State or Pennzoil, though I have been known to buy
whatever is on sale. More important to change that API oil regularly and
