A few point Id like to make, for one he uses Mobil 1. So of course he'll knock Amsoil.
At least Amsoil shows recorded tests against other oil brands - in which Amsoil smokes Mobil1 on every test.
2nd all synthetic oil cost with in cents of each other, so if your worried about extended drain intervals then change it more often. But to point out big liter semi's run hundreds of thousands of miles on oil drain intervals of 30,000 miles or more each time.
3rd, when it comes to the large difference in cold flow to hot flow ex. 5w-40 as compared to smaller such as 10w-30. With quality synthetic oils of today, the quicker breaking down is a thing of the past.
At least Amsoil claims they will warranty your engine if the long drain interval causes a failure. Who else does?
I run Amsoil (how'ed you guess), I change it about every 5 months regardeless b/c I make numerous short trips and only put on 9000k a year.
Ive done large amounts of research regarding oils, and the only brands I will ever run in my car or truck is Amsoil or Redline. I choose Amsoil because I get it for about half the price of Redline. Pensoil has oils that's Ferrari factory fill thats good too. But it's 60 bones a qt.
I also would like to note that I noticed an instant difference when I switch to a quality full synthetic oil in my truck.
Not to mention I believe the last time I researched Mobil1, I found that it's "full synthetic" was actually a blend
I get Amsoil pretty cheap if anyone wants to PM me
