Amsoil Users

I've used their full chemical synthetic motor oil, transmission and differential fluids since the 90's in several vehicles.

I retired from Shell Oil Co. as a chemist in 2004 and started my AMSOIL business at that time.

I can help you get the lowest prices and provide technical support.

Contact me anytime.

Why do you use Amsoil, reason I ask is because you are a dealer, what makes Amsoil different from other oil's, and I am not interested in doing Extended Drains, I go by my OLM.

How would I contact you.
AMSOIL is different from the other oils because it is a true chemical synthetic formulated for extended oil change intervals. I also like that they directly compare their products to the named competition using independent laboratories and ASTM tests.

I typically change all my vehicles and equipment once a year, but have gone longer. For OLM, AMSOIL offers less expensive full synthetic motor oils.

With fewer oil changes and better fuel economy, I save time and money.

I also like being able to order all my oil, filters, NGK spark plugs, TRICO windshield wiper blades, fuel additives, Mother's waxes/cleaners, etc. online or phone with home delivery in as little as overnight. No need to run around hunting for every item, hoping it is in stock, especially this time of year.

You can click on my name and go to public profile for my website and email to contact me.
Tim, can you tell us why you have been Banned from about 10 other Forums, is this the only website you visit these days. If your business is so great, then why are you Trolling Internet Message Boards. I believe you were a member on TITAN TALK, and you did not even own a Titan, I believe a Titan is a Toyota SUV or Truck.

Don't tell us you are here or on other message boards to provide info about Amsoil, anyone interested in Amsoil can go to Amsoil's Site.

I guess the moderators and sponsors did not appreciate my positive AMSOIL comments. Feel free to read my posts. I think they are still there.

I am still a member there. I was considering buying a Titan to tow a 5th wheeler toy hauler/RV, and decided on a Class A Damon Outlaw toy hauler motorhome instead. I also have many clients that own Titans and like to keep informed.
Tim, try and be more honest, the reason why you are the only Amsoil Dealer too be BANNED from at least 10 other Forums is because you were pushing a non sponsored product. You did not bring anything positive to the discussions. All of your answers seem to have some Amsoil Link attached.

It is not cool when you trash other products like you did in that Schaeffer's Thread.

I have never "pushed" a non sponsored product. I will make recommendations when asked, and clear up misinformation.

Not true. As an example, find a link in any of the answers I have provided here.

Tim, you have even been Banned from Motorcycle Forums, there was one Forum where you only lasted a day and had 10 posts.

Nobody on this Forum has asked you for any recommendations, if someone started a thread about Pennzoil Platinum you would probably jump in with some Link to an Amsoil Test that shows there oil is better than Pennzoil Platinum, I call that trashing.

Are you going to invite any of your so called 406 customers too come on here and share there experiences with Amsoil.
Haroonshaikh, johnpr3, count, Hawk, and inHaliburton on this forum have thanked me for my recommendations.

I'm up to 411 accounts now, since you seem to be keeping track. I think AMSOIL has over a million customers now. Feel free to ask any of them. The Better Business Bureau lists AMSOIL with their highest rating (A+) so they seem to be satisfied.

Lets invite the people on who thanked you for recommending Amsoil, sure it was not Redline.

We need to here from your customers, and I do not need to here about the Better Business Bureau.

We know that you have been Banned from every other Forum because you are always here on Noria.

Tim, can you please provide real data like component measurements, filter change intervals, make up oil, oil analysis tests and history, qualifications of the "independent" engine rater, whether or not Haywood Gray is an AMSOIL dealer. The sales literature you posted is nice...but lacks are real data.

The brochure did list oil analysis for lead (30ppm) and iron (150ppm) at 409,000 miles. The Certified Engine Rater worked for Lubrizol. He noted that 95% of the crosshatching was still present in the cylinder walls.

In 2005 he reports he currently has his filters changed and oil analysis at 50,000 miles. His current truck has 519,000 mile on one oil change.

I see that a Haywood Gray is listed as a current AMSOIL Dealer. But since just a dealer I don't see that he sells much. Probably too much seat time in his truck and motorcycle.

This brochure may have the component measurements you are looking for: http://www.amsoil.com/lit/g2578.pdf?zo=1181889 .

Here is deposit and wear data on 60,000 mile oil changes in New York taxi cabs. http://www.worldsbestoil.ca/taxi-test.php .

Here is one with oil analysis and wear measurements: http://www.amsoil.com/lit/g2695.pdf?zo=1181889 .

Here is a school bus study with used oil analysis: http://www.amsoil.com/performa...unty.aspx?zo=1181889 .

Tim thanks for the other info, but I am more interested in the Mack. As for the oil analysis, did Haywood Gray take it himself and only once at the 409,000 mile mark? Perhaps he took samples at 20,000 mile intervals. I would like to see the trend lines of the TBN, Vis, additive packages, etc. Did he top up the oil level between filter changes effectively sweetening the additive package? Did Haywood supply the information to AMSOIL or did AMSOIL run a controlled test on that particular truck. Did the Engine rater take actual measurements that are published, or did he just "eyeball" it. My main area of curiousity is the TBN and Soot due to the dirty nature of the Mack engine. The flyer is a nice piece of advertising literature, however, without real data it is anecdotal at best. I've seen the sizzle, now give me the meat and potatoes!

You are welcome John. Sounds like you need to contact Haywood for the used oil analysis. Hopefully I have left enough hints that you can find him. I did read the soot levels were fine. My read in the brochure and other info on the web was that he took regular oil analysis at the time of his 40,000 to 50,000 mile filter changes.

Here are some soot and TBN numbers taken every 20,000 miles over a 125,000 mile oil change. http://www.amsoil.com/lit/g554.pdf?zo=1181889 . Also has more wear and deposit measurements.

How are them meat and potatoes? Getting full yet?

I think the take home message to the original poster is that if your oil analysis came back fine, then your oil has not worn out. Even at over a half million miles on Haywood's oil change.

Thanks Tim, I got the same idea on filter change intervals and regular analysis too. When we do oil analysis on a particular piece of our equipment, we keep a running record and use that to develop trends. I just thought it would be neat to actually see documented oil analysis on that particular engine of Haywoods. The other info is appreciated, but not pertinent to the Mack with 400k oil change. Take care.

You are welcome John. What kind of equipment are you using oil analysis on? Can you share the data?

Tim, we do testing on diesel engines, hydraulics, portable compressors, gearboxes, etc. Most of the analysis is consistent in sample intervals. Limits are used to trigger additional testing (micro patch, etc.) or oil change. The data isn't mine to provide. Take care.

Tim, I was thanking you for your response, not recommendations. The information you provided was scattered sales literature. For example, Haywood Gray pulling a sample at 409,000 miles to say how great the oil was and I was asking for a running log covering the previous 400,000 miles to see trends. In response to that you posted a link to something completely different as if that was Proof for Haywood Gray. Those weren't recommendations Tim, just responses.

I was looking for Amsoil users and all I have found is an Amsoil Salesman. This is a site where people can share knowledge, instead we have an Amsoil Salesman pushing meaningless data that is fabricated by Amsoil. I guess the only Amsoil users on this board are actually Amsoil Salesman.

Sarge over on the LS1 Forums thinks Tim Vipond is the worst Amsoil Salesman EVER.

Nobody wants to talk with me because nobody comes here except you, everytime I come on this site you are here, and you are the only one here. The only reason you are here is too try and get a sale, that is the only reason.

Since you want too sell me something, then I will give you a shot at a sale, BUT I DO NOT WANT TOO SEE ANY AMSOIL LINKS.

What would be a good oil for a 5000 mile OCI, and what oil filter would be a good option. So you can tell me what Amsoil motor oil and filter combination would be good without slamming the competition.

Another thing Tim, nobody else on here wants to talk with you.

Will you be visiting any other Message Boards today.

I already looked up my Vehicles on the Amsoil Homepage, how much does that cheap OE oil go for a quart, I was thinking about the 5W-30 grade.

I will tell you what I want, I really do not think anyone here wants your recommendations, you are a Salesman, not a Mechanic.

Please do not put me to sleep with your credentials of working at Shell, for all we know, you could have been a Janitor in one of there buildings.
Tim, before I buy any Amsoil I will need to hear from some more satisfied users in this Thread, are you the only Amsoil user on this Board.

Would you care to explain why there was an Administrator on the Board with you this afternoon, do you have a problem with my posts.

I am not satisfied with your answer, I will call up Noria and find out what is going on, and Tim, if you get a call from Amsoil Headquarters and you come back and ask me if I was the one that called them, then my response will be, I DO NOT KNOW.
How much is poor lubrication and filtration practices costing your company? How much time and money are you pouring down the drain by not optimizing oil drain intervals. Maintaining your mobile equipment is probably one of your largest operating expenses. Engine and drive rebuilds alone can send your maintenance budget through the roof. Learn how to drastically reduce maintenance and lubricant costs. @ http://maximumoilchangeintervals.com/
Tarheel,

I use Amsoil and have in my 02 Explorer for 262k miles now. I have it everywhere in all my equipment too. My 70's bulldozer I run it in the engine and final drives. My 70's David Brown tractor I run it in the engine and final drives. I do not run it in the hydraulic systems due to constant leaks and the expense required to replace it.
My exploder has it everywhere there is an oil lubricant, from the transmission to the engine to the differentials and transfer case.
I'm more than happy with the service it has given me, and the cooling it has given my tranny, since I tow once in a while (more weight than I should probably).

I don't know Tim, but if he's like other salesmen, I probably don't want to either! I avoid salesmen like the plague. One of the reasons to visit the Amsoil site and get what I want. They credit my purchases to some "upline" like Amway or other mlm business, but I don't care since I don't have to deal with them.

My 2 cents
Some people can make syn work for them and some people don't go through the effort and usually it may not be worth the effort The main advantages of syn oils are extreme cold ,extreme high oil temps and extended drain intervals. Does it prolong your engine life? Maybe maybe not. If you don't extend your oil change intervals ,live in an area with near arctic winters you may not gain any advantage with syn base oils. I have worked in fleet maintenance and seen engines with more miles on them than could be imagines by running quality dino oils and proper oil change intervals. Amsoil is a fine oil as there are other fine oils.I don't sell Amsoil . All I can say is if you want to give Amsoil a try, go for it. Remember since most properly maintained engines usually outlast the chassis or the expensive trannie rebuild I find the syn advantage next to 0 unless extended oil change intervals are used.
