Of course, vehicle warranty coverage only covers manufacturing defects. It is not dependent on the oil used, or how long it was used, or having the voluntary API starburst, unless that oil was proven by the manufacturer to cause failure. And that AMSOIL has never voided a vehicle manufacturers warranty in 38 years. Some of you seem to have missed that point.quote:Originally posted by ADFD1:
You could void the warranty with trajans advice."
Using the wrong oil in the wrong grade, not meeting mfg specs, with the API starbusrt, for longer than the mfg suggests can too. Yet some of us seem to have missed that point.
Of course the United States Patent and Trademark Office approved AMSOIL's trademark "The First in Synthetics", when AMSOIL proved they were the first 100% synthetic oil to meet all API requirements. AMSOIL also submitted volumes of test data showing their oil was the best on the market, and the US Patent and Trademark Office asked for the other oil companies to prove AMSOIL wrong, which they didn't. And of course the trademark has been reviewed and renewed since then. And if you have any data that proves otherwise, please contact the United States Patent and Trademark Office to have them void it.quote:Originally posted by ADFD1:Interesting comments Miro, I like this one: When you come down to it marketing is a game played with words.
"AMSOIL does not issue any public disclosure so anything goes and does not need to have any truth in it just like their trademarked slogan (basically also a lie or at a minimum a deception) "First in Synthetics"...."
AMSOIL also has all of these additional "First in Synthetics" firsts:
