Friend of mine had one with a 454. he loved flogging that thing.

Thinking of going back to the BMW oil. Here's why: http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/...wflat&Number=1196764

My oil fill cap,and the inside of my valve cover looking through the oil fill opening has no sludge,soot,or varnish.


For those of you who think you are safe doing 3000 mile oil changes with receipts,think again.....

<<<<<Manufacturer warranties might refuse to cover oil sludge damage by blaming you, the customer, for poor maintenance habits or neglect—even if you can prove you changed the oil every 3,000 miles. Without warranty protection, engine replacements are $5,000-$10,000. SAAB, Toyota, VW, and a few other manufacturers have some limited coverage for sludge damage.>>>>>



In sum..........playing it safe as some have said,may not be.....playing it smart!

The smart move is to use group IV synthetic,don't get sludge in the first place,and you won't have to worry about warranty issues......because you probably won't have any issues to deal with.

Me too. The only comparisons I can find are the gear oil white paper: http://www.amsoil.com/lit/g2457.pdf and the 10w30 motorcycle oil comparison http://www.amsoil.com/storefront/mct.aspx in which the testing was performed by 3rd party labs . None of the named companies have disputed the results, which they would if they could. I'd like to see Red Line and the others have similar testing performed, but they don't.


Amsoil's "independent test" results are questionable, to say they least.

http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/...Number=477036&page=2

And I don't think we even need to get into the logical failure required to blindly accept tests that were Amsoil commissioned, with sampling controlled by Amsoil, and Amsoil published results as "the gospel".

Note, this isn't just for Amsoil. All testing data seems a bit inconclusive at times. The API Amsoil test doesn't seem right to me though. I understand it's marketing and they all stretch the truth to some degree and will market their product in such a way that makes them look better then they are.


I do not believe any of the tests or graphs on the Amsoil Site, its all pure marketing and LIES to get you to buy there product.

I don't see Pennzoil doing anything on there website that is deceitful or dishonest, but Amsoil will print anything to sell there product, they have to do something since they have very little market share.

The only reason Tim is on here is because he is trying to hustle some fools out of there money.

No lies. No one has been able to prove AMSOIL's data is incorrect. AMSOIL openly challenges anyone to prove their data is incorrect or that another product outperforms AMSOIL. Been that way for 38 years, and no one has. And all backed by the best and longest warranty in the business.

How come Supertech is not on the Amsoil tests?


Good question...no one seems to want to test it, yet it sells so good....Come on Amsoil...test it...lets the facts tell the story on how bad or good this stuff is.



The reason is that Super Tech outperfoms Amsoil in every test.



Bingo! There is the answer. ST is just fine. Good heavens!
Stop already. For those that say it does not do the same job as so-called name brand, please provide evidence as such and please provide evidence that continued use has damaged any vehicles engine.
Well SSO is not doing anything that S3K HD 5W30 was not already doing.It does not go any further in extended drains and is not going to reduce wear any better then S3K so why make it? Amsoil had a great 5W30 oil product that had characteristics in line with Mil-Spec. Artic Oil and they had it for years so what is the 0W30 doing? What problem was their with the other XW30 oils that SSO 0W30 came along and fixed! Their is nothing I hate more then when a product is created just because you can and the marketing people think they can exploit it in some way! I like products that exist to solve a problem and that produce better results then the other products it is supposed to be replacing. Amsoil does not need all the various products they have in their catalogs their is a lot of cross over and it is entirely about marketing.

All of their products can not be the best that they can be or they would not need so many. This means some are great products and others are obsolete or not as good. When you run a race you can not have the entire field end up winners it just does not work that way int he real world it only works that way in feel good ultra liberal land!So by default looking at the size of the Amsoil product list they have to have a lot of obsolete not so good oils or their would not be much need for new products! Keep in mind that Amsoil does not pay for API seal's and certifications so they can do what they want and put what ever they want to in a bottle. They are not even in the same ball park on price point with anything else on the retail shelf! So for the price premium you pay to run their product all of their products should be leaps and bounds ahead of their competition and they should not need so many legacy products or they should not need as many new products. Marketing games!!!

Keep the engine clean, keep wear and oxidation in check for the duration of the OCI. Lubricate the engine. Not a lot of fancy stuff for oil to do just some basic stuff it has been doing for a long time. The problem is you have a lot of knuckle dragers still in the world that think they need a 20W50 Synthetic Racing oil or a 15W40 SYnthetic Diesel oil etc.....Then you have the tree huggers that think they are making a difference in the world by running 0W30 instead of 5W30 because a synthetic 5W30 with an average HTHS of 2.9 is just eating the gas at an alarming rate from all that drag in the engine!!!! It a dog at apony shoe is what it is....... Few people do UOA so they have no clue if their engine is benifiting from 20W50 Synthetic Race Oil or if they are saving the earth by switching from 5W30 to 0W30 etc........ Marketing is what it is about. Mobil-1 does not need to have all the products it has on the shelfs but I used to hold Amsoil to a higher standard, now I think marketing has taken the wheel and is steering the ship now.
The company has lost their integrity and so have many that sell the product. I am not one to bow down to marketing and I hate change just for the sake of marketing. In reality they could blend anything you wanted to but I recon they will stick to what they think will sell. They could make a 0W10 if it would be so great but you do not see them doing that.

This is what my neighbor e-mailed me about the oil that has Big Al's name on it, pure MARKETING, maybe they should put his picture on the bottle.
Each of AMSOIL's oils are different and all sell well. Look at any top synthetic oil company and they have as many synthetic oils as AMSOIL.

For example, the SSO 0w30 is for those looking for better cold weather performance than 5w30. This is very important and popular in Alaska and Northern Canada. It is also the only AMSOIL product recommended and warranted for 35,000 normal service, 17,500 Severe Service up to a year.

It also meets different specs:
• ILSAC GF-4, 3 …
• ACEA A5/B5-04
• Honda HTO-06

Compare to the AMSOIL 5W30 ASL:
ACEA A5/B5 A1/B1
JASO VTW

All of AMSOIL's 6 month/7500 mile oils are API certified for those who feel that is important, while the same SAE viscosity is available for those more interested in a 15,000 to 25,000 mile up to 1 year OCI.

Choice is good. Consumers have spoken. AMSOIL's record growth proves it.

Dear Big Al,

I think every test, and everything that is written on your website is false and misleading with the intention of selling your product at any cost and that means misleading customers, stretching the truth, and also making false test results.

Tim, you can't be that dense so as to assume just because AMSoil doesn't state anything about the mfr warranty that it doesn't apply. Mobil 1 is simply stating something that some people might not think about, and that is extended drain intervals can cause mfrs to give people a hard time if they're not following the mfr guidelines and they have a mechanical issue. You're twisting words and being crafty in an attempt to make AMSoil seem to be something it's not.

I also see you quoting from the AMSoil literature again, that bit from GM. It also PROVES MY POINT. The statement wasn't specifically about AMSoil, but rather a logical statement from GM regarding GENERAL PRACTICE with ANY oil.

I know I said I was done with this subject and thread, but come on. This is the exact [censored] I'm talking about when it comes to AMSoil and I really hope people don't get sucked in based on twisted words, selective wording, and drawing conclusions based on the lack of wording.

Quote:
And “The New Vehicle Warranty would not be void
simply because an owner failed to use proper
engine oils or did not perform maintenance at the
prescribed intervals. Warranty applicability is
contingent upon the cause of failure.”
Service Policies and Procedures Department,
General Motors Corporation

And “Installation or the use of special materials does
not, in and of itself, void the New Vehicle Limited
Warranties.”
Service and Parts Operations,
Chrysler Corporation

Nissan has to play by the same rules in the US.
EXACTLY my point. Stop and think, Tim. These quotes aren't being made ABOUT AMSoil, they're being made about general maintenance practices. Whether you use AMSoil or Mobil 1 doesn't matter, the SAME rules apply. The only difference is Mobil 1 has a statement in there for people that are, no offense, too dumb to make logical conclusions about how to maintain their vehicle(s).

Quote:
I disagree. I am following all the rules set up by Nissan, Mobil 1, AMSOIL, and consumer protection laws. I just use better players.

You can learn more about AMSOIL and warranties at https://www.amsoil.com/lit/g2488.pdf .
Disagree all you want, you are not playing fair and you know it. You can't quote 3rd party statements from AMSoil literature and only apply it to AMSoil products when they're not about and specifically name AMSoil products.

Let me give you an example of how you're not playing fair or are simply being dense. You have 2 batteries, they both do the same thing and they're both made out of the same materials. One battery states "Do not throw in fire, battery could explode and cause injury or death" and the other has no such statement. If you were to tell me that because the one battery DIDN'T have that statement that it would be safe to throw into a fire then you'd be off your rocker.

These inane arguments you use regarding AMSoil are like a broken record and are they main reason why I refuse to ever purchase an AMSoil product. I can't stand the way people market it like it's made by God himself, if He/She actually exists, and I feel sorry for anyone that gets sucked in based on the false logic, crafty wording and omissions.

And NOW I'm done. Take care, Tim. Hope you stay cancer-free. Maybe a small dose of AMSoil in your morning coffee will help you live forever. You never know, just because it doesn't say it won't might mean that it actually will.

No claims were disproven. Only a bunch of opinions on different methodologies giving different results on different samples by different labs. None compared all the samples using the same methods, except for the AMSOIL data. No one has disproven the AMSOIL data in 38 years. But Castrol disproved Royal Purples claims. And Castrol and Valvoline disproved Mobil 1 claims. But AMSOIL's data has stood the test of time for 38 years.
Amsoil SSO vs ASL - technicalities?

I was planning for a long time to run ASL until SSO debut'd, but in looking through the spec sheets on amsoil this is what I've discovered.

Without discount SSO is $10.10/qt and ASL is $7.70 (23% cheaper). That alone is a big deal for me, but here's what I find most interesting...

SSO, a 0W-30, is thicker than ASL 5W-30 @ 40C.
Four Ball wear test... SSO = 0.406, ASL = 0.35
NOACK volatility... SSO = 8.65, ASL = 7.1
HTHS, Viscosity Spread, Flash, Fire, and Pour points are all equal.
The only advantage SSO seems to have is a TBN of 13.2, while ASL has a TBN of 12.2.

So, why should I pay 23% more for an oil that is more volatile and doesn't protect as well in the engine? Maybe I missed how this is the *better* oil?

BBC-Welcome to Noria.

I found this statement in the link interesting, and how myself and many feel about Amsoil: Especially #1.

From link: 3 things come to mind when looking at these numbers:

1. Amsoil fabricates or makes their numbers look better then they are.

2. This lab has testing inconsistancies.

3. What goes on inside an engine in real world operating conditions is what really makes an oil good, hence, specs are not that important.

Very strange. Yep very strange, Nope, I don't think you're Tragan!

Specs and formulations help predict what happens in the real world. Real world testing can have too many variables. Both are important. That is why motor oil companies should do both. And due to unpredictables, a good warranty covers that.

"There is one simple reason that Houkster is so keen on Synlube.... he owns it! Anyone who wants to go to http://www.synlube.com will readily find out that 'Miro Kefurt' is the head honcho there! He is not a user only! As he sits in his abode in Las Vegas and promotes, mainly at his computer terminal, At $32.00 per quart [liter] - he does not have to sell too may knot heads his PTFE Cocktail in order to buy his own 'Throw Away Car' - no matter what he puts in the engine! AMSOIL is just AMSOIL - it's 32 year history of growth [will top $100,000,000.00 in sales for 2005] speaks for itself! Miro has threatened to sue me several time for owning the name synlube.net, and has accused me of buying that domian in order to get his customers.........."


It seems this Amsoil Dealer has said that Amsoil's sales will top $100,000,000.00 in 2005, why couldn't Tim have provided us with that info.

All that translates into some discounts
My NAPA stores carry a little Mobil 1, but they sell a lot more AMSOIL. If your NAPA store doesn't carry AMSOIL, I can set them up with wholesale prices and do free advertising for them, likely get them listed in the top 5 out of over 100,000 google search results for "AMSOIL Gainesville" and send them some new customers.

Re: Mobile one oil
Since you drive a lot, tow and can get it at a good deal at your family's NAPA, you might consider the better AMSOIL SSO 0w30 and change at the recommended/warranted 17,500 severe miles. Mobil 1 only recommends/warranties for 3750 severe miles. Wholesale is $7.69 a quart when you buy a case of 12 quarts, or $7.59 a quart if you buy a case of 4 X 1 gallon bottles. It will save you a lot of time and money.

lol yeah yahooligan your forgetting to bow to the alter of amsoil

Wow, Tim's NAPA sells more Amsoil than Mobil 1

The OP was asking about Mobil 1 and Tim is trying to push Amsoil down the OP's THROAT.

I was having some power steering problems (fluid getting dirty quickly, steering not smooth and difficult turning)in my 1997 Chevy Venture. I tried emptying and refilling the reservoir several times, but didn't help. Then I tried a power steering flush and Valvoline Synthetic Power Steering fluid meeting the GM spec, and all is well.

It seems that you had some good luck using a fluid that meets the Manufactures Spec and all is well. Now go ahead and DUMP that Amsoil Motor Oil you are using that does not meet your manufactures spec for an oil that meets the Manufactures Spec and all will be well in your engine.

Man - Here we go again... didn't anyone raed my posts on page 6? Here, I'll cut and paste for you!

"There is one simple reason that Houkster is so keen on Synlube.... he owns it! Anyone who wants to go to http://www.synlube.com will readily find out that 'Miro Kefurt' is the head honcho there! He is not a user only! As he sits in his abode in Las Vegas and promotes, mainly at his computer terminal, At $32.00 per quart [liter] - he does not have to sell too may knot heads his PTFE Cocktail in order to buy his own 'Throw Away Car' - no matter what he puts in the engine! AMSOIL is just AMSOIL - it's 32 year history of growth [will top $100,000,000.00 in sales for 2005] speaks for itself! Miro has threatened to sue me several time for owning the name synlube.net, and has accused me of buying that domian in order to get his customers.........."


It seems this Amsoil Dealer has said that Amsoil's sales will top $100,000,000.00 in 2005, why couldn't Tim have provided us with that info.


Well Big Bear, I went back and reread from page 6 to page 11. I got a headache from reading Houckster trying to get through to Barkerman and others regarding his methodology of sending the first sample to SynLube, and the second sample to Terry only if the results were favourable. It make perfect sense to me.

Also, Houckster is a SynLube customer, not its owner.

Regards, Paul.

Yeah, ole' Hock claimed it for years on BITOG in his public profile. Till it got posted here anyway. Then claimed it was altered.........

Still haven't seen an answer to my question. Was he lying for all those years? Or now?

I was having some power steering problems (fluid getting dirty quickly, steering not smooth and difficult turning)in my 1997 Chevy Venture. I tried emptying and refilling the reservoir several times, but didn't help. Then I tried a power steering flush and Valvoline Synthetic Power Steering fluid meeting the GM spec, and all is well.

The previous CONVENTIONAL power steering fluid also met Chevy's spec. The improvement was the flush and SYNTHETIC power steering fluid. Still works great. The AMSOIL CHEMICAL SYNTHETIC motor oil I use meets and exceeds the manufacturers spec, so much so that I now change my oil every 15,000 miles or once a year instead of the previous 3,000 miles per Chevy's recommendation. Much longer, much less expensive and better performance with a much better warranty. Thank you AMSOIL!

Paul, everytime I read the Synlube Thread I get a headache too, the only reason I put that post from the Synlube Thread up here is because I had Googled " Amsoil Sales Figures " and that post came up in the Synlube Thread here, there is alot of interesting info in that old Synlube Thread.

Don't thinks so. I think the chronology was Ammo's (Al's fighter pilot nickname)
Oil, Amzoil and finally Amsoil after a lawsuit lost by Pennzoil. I heard Redline was founded by ex-Amsoil employees.
Tell us about All Proof.

Wilkapedia has "Other early synthetic motor oils included All-Proof, a 10W-50 polyolester-based motor oil introduced in 1970" Also had a temperature limit of 700F.

I also found this from:http://www.pashnit.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9877

Ok, so here is the history lesson of why RedLine is #1. What they don't say is it started out as a small company called "All Proof", how do I know that? I knew the original founder Pete Filice.


Since 1979, the privately-held Red Line Synthetic Oil Corporation has grown to manufacture over 80 quality products, including motor oils, gear oils, assembly lubes, fuel additives, and its popular WaterWetter cooling additive for the automotive, motorcycle, marine, and industrial markets. Based in Benicia, California, the company earned a reputation with racers and enthusiasts alike for creating products that perform and protect better than any on the market, regardless of price.

Originally founded by president Tim Kerrigan and Peter Filice (retired) to produce lubricants for the racing industry, Red Line Oil now distributes a diverse line of products in North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan.

Developing and marketing among the most sophisticated lubricants in the world, Red Line’s products are designed to literally outperform for the task at hand. In 1986, the addition of Cornell-degreed Roy Howell as chief chemist brought Red Line Synthetic Oil Corporation into a league of its own, with a knowledge of available technologies, an ability to respond to technical challenges, and the ability to satisfy the needs of the performance industry.

Red Line Oil’s team of chemists and blenders formulate fully-synthetic oils and chemically-advanced additives using only the world’s finest base stocks. This makes Red Line Oil the premium product on the shelf. It’s not designed to be the cheapest—it’s built to be the best. Rather than cutting costs by blending into polyalphaolefin base stock for its motor oil, Red Line Oil only uses superior poly ester-based products—resulting in lubricants that are extremely stable at high temperatures while providing superior film strength at lower viscosities where more power can be produced.

The world’s top racing teams and most discriminating enthusiasts use Red Line Oil products exclusively. There may be a different sponsor on the outside, but chances are its Red Line Oil on the inside.

Wow, Tim said, " I heard Redline was founded by ex- Amsoil employees." He also knew the original founder of Redline Oil, Pete Filice.

Well Tim, what can you tell us about Pete Filice, we wouldn't want you to say anything that might be PROPRIETARY.
