I dont know that you're wrong in going with Mobil 1. Lots of folks here have and are pleased with it. My research showed that Amsoil was the best available, especially when combined with their bypass filter, so I'm gonna give it a try.


There aren't any Dixie Chopper dealers around here, but I'm gonna get my mechanic to set it up for me. I want to see if the Amsoil lowers my operating temperature, but I dont have a temp. gauge on my Scag. Maybe I could get one of those infared temp. guns for $100 and find out. It seems I remember that you commented one time about the operatin temp. lowering on your DC. Do you have a temp. gauge?

I have one on my new diesel. What I was talking about was when I got it broke in, I added Tufoil and the temperature droped 10 degrees. I knew the air cooled motors seemed to run cooler after putting in Tufoil, but didn't know how much. When I put it in the diesel, I knew for sure it helped. I've run Tufoil for the past 12 years and had great luck. The Amsoil filter just filters out dirt that is 25 times smaller than what goes though a regular oil filter. This is what helps keep a motor going longer.
