I just wanted to get everyone's thought on the extra cost of running synthetic oil.

What kind of differences are you noticing with AMS-Oil? I'm going to change my oil soon, and I'm considering using AMS. Better fuel economy? Performance?

clean engine

yeah, the ams-oil really cleans out the engine. I think my truck runs smoother, sounds more smooth, everything. It is the greatest. I also used ams-oil tranny fluid when i rebuilt that.

In another vehicle I have, we have been running ams-oil in it since 40K miles, it is currently over 218k origional miles...everything origional and this is a 4cylinder, gasoline engine, runs like a champ! but the best part is to see the inside of the engine block, it literally looks BETTER than new. where as most engines of that use are totally black inside, this one is shiny as ever. I'll post a pic later, I have to take it still though.

The only negative thing about this kind of oil is the cost, but for the engine life it gives I think that it is worth it!

If you drive a lot in Mexico, wouldn't it be better to use Oil of Olay?

2011 F-350 XLT 4x4 Crew Cab. Ranch Hand Legend Front & Rear Bumpers. Forest Green

I use Shell Rotella T 5W-40 Synthetic year round. In the winter helps cure the ROMPS. At Wally World $14.00 a gallon. I change the oil and filter every 5000 miles and send an oil sample to Blackstone for analysis. Keith
