Holy H3LL.... OIL = $$$$$$$$$$$$$

Daaaaaaaaaaaaamnnnnnn............

Just got back from the local NAPA... He had the AMSOIL I needed, and it was cheaper than having it mailed....

16 Qts of AMSOIL 15-40 (4-1 gallon Jugs)
+
1 NAPA GOLD filter... (Made by WIX)
+
1 Bottle of Power Service 250G (White/Winter)
=
$177.22.



But on the plus side, I know I will have THE BEST oil in it, and I can go 10,000 miles before I have to change it.

AMSOIL Premium API CJ-4 Synthetic 15W-40 Diesel Oil (DME)
(Will switch the filter out at 5,000 miles.)
