Why would you buy Amsoil online when if you went door to door every 10th home with a garage is an "Amsoil Dealer" and he'll probably sell it to your for a discount.
Bottom line is any synthetic is better than any petroleum based oil.
Amsoil is a Multi-level Marketing company and has been for over 40 years. Over that time, there have been enough Amsoil salesman and "independant dealers" swearing to thier neighbors and buddys about it's performance to create quite a following. Talk to any Amway, Avon, Melaluca, or Herbalife sales reps and they will be able to provide you with countless testimonials and scientific proof and especially independant laboratory tests that conclude thier product to be superior over all others.
Is Amsoil the best oil made? No
. Research synthetic base stocks. Amsoil uses polyalphaolefin or PAO which is an API class IV synthetic base. Ester is a API class V synthetic base that surpasses PAO's protection and durability qualities. The process is much more expensive than that of the PAO and only esters are durable enough to withstand the rigors of jet engine operation and they are also used in racing and high performance cars.(My experience all comes from the world of motocross and Motul and Redline come to mind)
Is Amsoil a good, reasonably priced full synthetic? Yes.
I am personally not a fan of Amsoil and it annoys me when people blurt out, "It's the best there is!" usually based on what thier neighbor who sells furnature by day and Amsoil on the weekend tells them.
that's exactly what I want to find out! if you look on line AMSOIL is the best oil out there,but yet all the testing you'll find they are on a AMSOIL web site;
AMSOIL is not API certified,it does not meet "SN"but still"SM".
does not meet "GL-5"(so far the only oil that meet GL-5 is the ENEOS sold by poly performance).
Now, I come from Italy,and my father there owns a PORSCHE GT-2 RS and
he always owned AMG mercedes,they both recommend MOBIL 1,and if you
look the corvette ZO6 znd ZR1 come from the factory with MOBIL 1.
even more the bugatti VEYRON(I hope you know what it is)the fastest car on the planet(16 cyl,8.4 l,four turbos,1001 hp,1100 f/lb)as MOBIL 1 in it.
So how come if this oil is so good,why no auto maker use it as reference point?
one more thing so far MOBIL 1 is the only fully synthetic oil that meets "SN"
spec. this happend one month ago with the latest API,SAE,GL, testing.
can someone tell me,how come AMSOIL is not API certified,and a lot of people
still use it with confidence?
