Amsoil

How often do you change you oil using Amsoil? I was thinking about using it in all my vehicles.

It all depends on how you drive your truck. You will destroy your engine by following anyone's advice. You need to run an oil analysis to see if your engine can handle the long oil change interval. Amsoil is a great oil, but don't buy too much into the hype.

Thanks for the info. My driving patterns are less than normal because I have a Company truck to use. I have always been leery of using synthetic oil in anything but I thought it would only be beneficial if I used it in all of our gassers and my diesel. No Hype Just curious.
