As you have yet again failed to read the thread, I'll spell it out for you.

I don't use Amsoil because......... wait for it............ it is not on the BMW approval list. I listed it earlier.

I don't use Redline either because........... wait for is not on the BMW approval list. I listed it earlier.

I don't use that synlube swill because.................wait for's a scam. Don't blame me that your tin god has fallen.

Well Trajan...........these guys have no issues with Amsoil.......and they all drive BMW,for real.

Motorcyclists using Amsoil.

As for Synlube,and the "wise crack".........this guy has no issues with it...........

I used this stuff after reading an article in European Car. At least I think it was European Car magazine back then.... anyhoo...

I put it in my 1986 Jetta Diesel at 121,000 miles and installed a canton mecca remote oil filter at the same time. I changed the filter every 25,000 miles and added a quart of oil at that time.

I sold the car at 486,000 miles after it was rear ended by a Chevy Chevette doing 45mph. It still ran great and delivered a solid 42mpg in the city (redline to redline shifts) and averaged a healthy 52mpg at 70mph.

I did change the oil out every 50,000 miles as per there directions back in the early 90's and allthough extremly black it still was performing very well and there was no sludge build up anywhere.

I thought the company had fallen off the face of the Earth or had gone out of business. That is untill today when I came across a link to it from another website.

I will try it out first in our Ford Focus since it sees the most use. I will report back in 2 years when it had accumalted 50,000 miles and let you know the averages.
