    Yes this is another oil thread.

    Who is using this and what are your thoughts?
    I am thinking of changing over at my next oil change

    I have used it for two oil changes. I am sitting at 15000 miles and just sent my oil away for a sample. I will let you know the results, should have them back in the next day or so.

    I did one at my 10,000 mile change as well and the results were favorable but I still had some engine break in particles in there, this one should be a good clean sample.

    I run this and change it every 25,000 miles. Filters at 7,500. No problems so far and the truck has 65,000 miles. I've been using Amsoil on all my vehicles for the past 10 years. When I purchased my truck I sold my Isuzu Rodeo with 272,000 miles on it to a friend. That was in 07, he still uses it as a daily driver. I'm sold on Amsoil. I also use their Severe Gear Oil for LSD and their antifreeze and transmission fluid. Good stuff.

    I use it and my truck runs great. I got turned on to amsoil by Gadget at URD. Make sure you become a preferred customer or a dealer and you can save a lot of money.

    I have it sitting in the garage waiting till this weekend to put it in. I have 3500 miles on my 2010. I have been a preferred customer for years now I have ran amsoil in everything I own. Good stuff! Even with the shipping charge it is still reasonable.

    I use it as well and love it. I have 0w-30 amsoil in the motor, amsoil universal ATF in the auto trans, amsoil severe gear 75w90 in the front and rear diff and transfer case. And amsoil synthetic grease on the shaft zerks.

    I use the amsoil EAO34 filter.

    And the prefeered customer pricing does save a you a ton. 1 qt of 0w30 goes from $10.50 to $8.10. Saves money on anything you buy. I buy in large quantities for myself, the family, and a few friends

    Ive used Amsoil in my 06 since i drove it off the lot. Started using 0W-30 two years ago. AWESOME stuff. I use their EA nanofiber filter in my Volant intake system Love it.

    Just wish someone carried it local.
