Just some questions:
Why is it that in all of Amsoil's propaganda, that they never test against ALL other Synthetic oils? You know... Apples to Apples.
They only "pick" the ones that fall a little short (supposedly.)
And, why are they only sold by Dealers... Like Amway products?
If it was so good, wouldn't some mass marketer be selling it?
Eric.... People coming into a thread and starting crap about AMSOIL is why threads get shut down.
If you want to know something about AMSOIL start a new thread and PM me that you started one..
But, as it is here, I will answer what you have currently asked.. Future posts like these will need to be in a specific thread started by you.
Don't know what you have against AMSOIL or it's Dealers. I have been an AMSOIL Dealer for over 25 yrs now and also owned and operated several shops over a 35 yr period. I have taken Lubrication Specific courses over this period and invested many thousands of dollars to be knowledgeable about the subject. In other words, I am more than a salesman.
Now, you can ask someone who has invested their life in lubrication and filtration, or, you can ask a local mechanic where there is about a 99% chance that he knows little to nothing about the subject although he may try to impress upon you how much he doesn't actually know.
I personally asked for this Oil and Lubrication Thread so we could help people..
It is not just about AMSOIL...
AMSOIL had The line has to be drawn somewhere as some of these tests are quite expensive when you have several of the Top Testing Facilities in the US do the tests..
They could always do like the other companies do and wrap a rag around a bottle so you don't know who or what they are testing against. No, AMSOIL Names it's competitors in print where if the results were false, AMSOIL would be sued out of business.
ASTM Tests are used as they can be duplicated by anyone and within a reasonable margin of error. Unlike the so-called test where they are pulling down on a spinning disc to show a wear mark. That is a Falex Bearing test... A Test for gear lubes and is not valid as it has the human hand involved.
There are a few Chains that do carry AMSOIL and they got in before the 12 store policy went into effect to protect Dealers such as myself and Rex that built the company..
Wal-Mart has approached AMSOIL along with Pep Boys and Auto-Zone and were turned away as they do not want to abide by AMSOIL's Policies.. This isn't Burger King, they don't "Get It Their Way"
