Schaeffer 9000 full synthetic in 5,10,and 15w40. As good as Amsoil and only $19.15 per gallon. You have to order ahead of time and get it shipped but I had to do the same with Amsoil. If your order is over $300 the shipping is free.

Personally I don't think too much of Mobil 1.

Who do you order from? Buy1Oils wants $50 to ship 5 gallons.

Think I'm gonna stick with amsoil. I hate switching brands. I am also thinking about getting a amsoil bypass kit. What are your thoughts on that?

I like mine but i still change at 5k because of the shear of the oil most of the time when mine is running it's pulling my 5er + an oil change is cheap insurance

It's funny you mention this because I posted a few days ago letting everyone know of this sale at Autozone. I too typically use Amsoil, but figured since it was on sale and cheaper I'd give it a shot. I put it in on Saturday and thus far I can't tell a difference. From what I read, a lot of people here on the org use it / like it so I figured it couldn't hurt.

I mean for $30 you get 5 quarts of oil and a filter, that's pretty good in my book. Do that 3 times and you have enough to do an oil change. The only thing is my Autozone wouldn't let me switch to a Motorcraft filter, so I had to buy one seperatly. Not a big deal because I just got 3 that would fit my wife's Tahoe.

WOW! I just checked their site and that place is a huge rip off. I was just quoted $95.75 for 5 gals. last week and that place wants $148.

Let me get some info for you Gramps. My Acct: Rep is giving up his Schaeffer deal and going back to school to finish his Mech. Engr. degree. You can go to Schaeffer's web site and get the retailers near you. I am going to talk to my friend and see who is taking over his territory. He is in Missouri.
