Other than the obvious benefits of synthetic during extreme winter cold and high summer heat, I am thinking that the synthetic might help to keep the "oil fired" injectors from having oil related problems.
I would appreciate any feedback from those who use or have used the AmsOIL, as to their opinion. Why they like it, or why they don't.
I think your idea is on the money. If all you do is about 10K a year then a AMSOIL and a filter change midway threw is great. The SDF88 is good for about 7500mi but nothing wrong with playing it safe and changing mid way. You could do Oil Analysis and possibly even run it longer to save yourself even more money.
With AMSOIL 5 and 15w-40 you are getting some of the best protection for your motor. Both oils stayed in the within the SAE rating in a shear stability test where the others fell below that rating. Granted this was based on fuel dilution but that is one of the worst things that can happen to your oil. AMSOIL also addressed the HEUI systems and the known problems of shearing oil and both 5 and 15w-40 oil can with stand the shearing effects of this system. If I may get you information about either of these please just let me know.
I use Diesel Concentrate and Cetane Boost every tank. These were the first two products of AMSOIL I started using. Both products did what they said and so I took a chance and started using motor oil. Because of the gains I saw and the product doing what they said it would I became a dealer. The 5w-40 is what I run because I drive my truck daily and was looking to get the best fuel milage I could. I have put 10k on the oil before my first oil analysis when the report came back all was well and I pressed on.
If I can answer more questions for you or get you information about buying AMSOIL products at wholesale please feel free to PM, Email or give me a Call.
