Amsoil Vs Scheaffer's

I have been using Amsoil for 25 years, and its the only oil I have used except breakin oil. The only comparisen I can make is agaist Delo 400 25 years ago. At theat time there was no comparisen. I have not used another sythetic.

Has anybody compare'd these 2 sythetic. Percived difference or UOA difference?

They are both excellent oils. I am going to be switching from Amsoil to Schaeffers shortly though. Due to difference in cost

I love my Schaeffers 9000 in the winter and the price is hard to beat at $18 a gallon.
