$17.xx / gallon

Just curious do you run this in your truck or mowers?

I am thinking of running in my mowers and other equipment. I already run it in the trucks and car I might as well use in everything.

Guys AMSOIL Synthetics 5w-40 is priced close, for 2, 2 1/2 gallon jugs. I don't get you folks, you will spend over 40,000 for a Diesel truck, and whine about expensive cheap oil. These modern diesels take up to 15 quarts, so no matter what retail brand of Dino oil or synthetic oil you choose, AMSOIL is priced better. AMSOILS Extended oil intervals saves operating costs, and superior protection. Why would you not switch, if only to save money & reduce oil changes. I have over 24,000 miles on my AMSOIL going on 1 season of towing & hauling no oil change, Oil Analysis came back 9 TBN, oil started at 12TBN, Silicon 6 (which is dirt in oil) 10 is excessive. I am laughing at you all the way to the bank, have saved over $1,000 dollars in oil change costs, with the miles I log, I can afford to pay more in Diesel, because I have reduced my oil costs, pass that savings onto my customers, just good business, and I have been rewarded through referrals, even with a "slowing" economy????

I didn't realize this thread was about Amsoil :) :usflag:

All joking aside I am sure I am not the only one who is happy that Amsoil is working great for you. By now most of us are all well aware of Amsoil and many of it's products. Some just chose to use different products.

FWIW - There are many quality oils out there that will run 25k without an oil change in a modern diesel engine and produce very good oil analysis results. Amsoil is not the only choice.

regardless of the oil used, I would not recommend running 25K with just a Spin on oil filter, a by-pass oil filtration system is recommend for anything over the manufacture's newer extended oil change intervals 7,500miles for most modern CJ-4 diesels oils. There are many good convential oils, and synthetic oils on the market, I could care less what oil folks use, it's your money. The thread was about price, at the retail level Rottella is over priced, and has a lower new oil TBN number for what you think your getting. when you start purchasing Rottella in 55 gallon drums then it's a bargin.
