Where did you get these numbers? The reports I've seen show a 10% synthetic oil market. And retail stores carry much more that 2% synthetic oils, more like the 10% I've seen reported.
Again, Please Post the reports you've seen.
Where did you get this pricing? The reports I've seen show it goes for about $10 per gallon. Which would seem to reflect the chemical synthetic motor oil prices in the market.
I think we would like to see these reports too!
You going to show us the numbers Tim, I also looked at Amsoil's numbers on the ASTM D-5293 test and they did not look that good.
I also looked at the 40 Degree Celcius Numbers and I was not impressed.
You seem to like to knock Pennzoil but they did show numbers for the D-4684 test, Castrol Edge also showed numbers for this test, Amsoil does not have any numbers for this test meaning they do not show it on there site.
I have a feeling that since Amsoil is super thick they probably knew they would do terrible with the D-4684 test.
How come Amsoil 0W-20 is thicker than Amsoil 5W-20 XL, that Amsoil 0W-20 is almost a 0W-30 and some would argue that it is almost a 5W-20
Your Amsoil 0W-30 is thicker than Castrol Edge's 5W-30 and its very close to Pennzoil Platinums numbers for there 5W-30 motor oil.
Why is the 5W-30 XL thinner than the 5W-30 100% synthetic oil that Amsoil sells.
The Viscosity Indexes on your oil's looks pathetic, no wonder your oil's thicken up overtime.
Amsoil Motor Oil is just too THICK, especially for the NORTHERN folks during the wintertime.
