Any one have any experience W/ Amsoil ?

The shop I have the closest relationship [ other than the dealer ] pushes Amsoil synthetics.I'm comog up on my 3rd Oilchange & want to switch all fluids to Synthetice.I read the thread about using the G.M. friction modifier & will insist on that. Just don't know much about Amsoil.I've read tons on this site,as well as MobilOne's site. Just curious if Amsoil is yet another MFGR,like Royal purpke, Etc. All supposeddly great products. Thanks, usmc52

I've used it in a few cars, including one turbo. Very pleased.

Hmm. That was pretty much a big advertisement. You'll get mixed reviews on it, in real life. I'm not a fan of their pyramid-like (they go to great lengths to convince you it's "multi-level-marketing", however) selling scheme. Got to remember the founder also was part of the Amway marketing model too. So take that for what it's worth.

It is one of the few true PAO oils out there. But their marketing is more like a non-republican attack ad...note they're ALWAYS knocking other oils rather than simply touting their own successes. Kinda backwards to me.

But none of the OE's use it, or has ever used it, as factory fill. The Amsoil zombies will espouse ad nauseum about the reason why as Mobil 1 practically gives it away...and on and on...blah blah- standard Amsoil talking points. Fact is, they DON'T nor ever have. In my mind, by hook or crook, but the consumer perception is OE factory use can "legitimize" an oil.

Amsoil is good, but it's not a panacea as they'd like you to believe. Buy some and try it yourself and if you like it, then that's all that matters.

Awesome oil for my Harley! Used it for 6 years now, but no experience in Camaro usage.

All I know is that they have salespeople everywhere, posting on forums and newsgroups, or at least it seems that way. Maybe I'm getting them confused with Amway.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.

el ess Ex, I'll look into it deeper. If It has anything to do with Amway. ,I'll Cease & Desist immediately.Amway is this countries biggest ripp-off. Because their name sounds alike,will not make me Diss them on 1 persons opinion. I make decisions on research from many searches. No offense to you. Like any smart person, we look into the info presented to us & form our own opinions. Thanks for the info.USMC52. As the leaders before me taught,assess the target,before deploying human asset's.
