Never heard of it. Putting anything in an engine as expensive as what we drive that isn't from a LARGE company scares the bajeebers out of me...and really doesn't make a lot of sense. Mobile 1, Amsoil, Shell, Valvoline just to name a few... This doesn't mean it might not be good oil, but where's their R&D? How long have they been in business? I've seem to have heard of several oil brands coming out of the wood works lately. Now that company may have been out for 50 years, but if they don't sell to many customers... For comparison... how many oil changes do you think the brands listed above have gone through? Just some questions I ask myself...

I have faith in Shell Rotella oils. I will be using the T6 full synthetic 5W-40 oil in my 2015 F350 SD. Wal Mart sells it for approx $22/gal. It is made from Natural Gas.

I have no plans of using a Synthetic Blend, some mixture of full synthetic and conventional oil.

I hear ya on the full synthetic...which is why I was looking into this. They have been around since 1956. I know one thing, its expensive ringing in at $50 a gal.

I was also looking into a bypass oil filtration system to put on my 2015 as well...the FS2500

They are actually trying to get $50.00 per gallon for it?

Now that's crazy. Even their ad is hokey. I would like to get my hands on it and run it through my lab to see what is really has going for it. If anyone buys it I would like to have about 2 oz. of the new fresh product and some used product with miles or hours on it.

I use their oil in racing engines. Never even knew they had a diesel oil though. I had to laugh when I read the price of it. That is twice the price I pay for the 20w-50 racing oil.

i would look at a different system
I am thoroughly disappointed in mine

and to help solve the black oil they sold me a different version filter (2 micron)
it didn't change

so while my oil analysis has always been fine and I just run the bypass for extra filtering not extended changes their advertising is a scam IMHO
and doesn't deserve reward

I hate to say it but the Amsoil systems have a lot of good reports
