You said RL gives the same warranty as AMSOIL, yet you can't produce a warranty for even 25,000 miles. Why would only a fool with a new car use an oil for 35,000 normal miles up to a year? The 3500 Texas State Police change every 20,000 severe miles with a lesser oil for the past 10 years. Are they fools also?

Why? They don't seem to have a warranty.

The oil has never failed in 38 years when used as recommended, so I doubt the oil is shot. Please post your best example.

So? Maybe the other SAE 30 oils don't meet the manufacturers specs. And they certainly don't warranty a 35,000 normal mile/1 year oil change interval.

Which engine? Trajen showed a Ford Mustang engine that specs a 30 weight oil a few posts back. And Mobil didn't offer the required Ford spec either. So they did get it right.

So? No vehicle manufacturer requires API approved oils. Why pay if it is not required by anyone? RL isn't API approved. And why didn't RL want to pay? And AMSOIL offers 5w20, 5w30, 10w30, 10w40 and 15w40 that are API approved, if that is important to anyone.

Good luck with that...Still waiting for a copy of the RL warranty, which you claim is the same as AMSOIL's.
