Curious of this myself, thinking about doing it just to be on the safe side. I'm a big fan of the quality of AMSOIL, but NOT the price!

Become a dealer and get it wholesale. That's what I do. 65 bucks a year.

Of course AmsOil is great.....if you want to pay for it! I put the regular NAPA brand Mercon in mine. It works great and its about a 1/3 of the price Amsoil is....but if money wasnt an issue, I woulda ran Amsoil....
