    If what I read is correct, the Super Oil will make my engine warranty go from 2 years parts and labor to 4 years parts and labor. Is that correct? As long as I record oil changes and have receipts for the oil changes during the 4 year period. I am a big believer in maintenance, and this would be right up my alley.

    This is true.
    The 3rd and 4th year the internals of the engine are covered only.

    I really doubt Hustler is now nto oil production. Is this re-badged Mobile 1/Valvoline Synthetic, Amsoil, what?

    The truth will eventually come out so lets here it right from the manufacturer and skip all of the speculation and un-truth's

    What speculation and untruths are there?
    I don't know the mfg myself, I will ask around and see what I can find out.

    This is not to complex. It appears to be coming from the motor manufacturers. Buy their oil and extend your warranty. Hustler is making it simpler by going through them. The price of the extended warranty is built into the price and they know if you do your maintenance with good oil the insides will last. So for a few extra dollars you get a longer warranty. I will only need the 6 quarts in 4 years so it is a good deal for me. I found this when comparing torque ratings.

    It is not from the engine mfg's.
    Honda and Kohler offer no such oil / extended warranty that I know of.
    The Kawasaki oil is Opti-Oil just relabeled.
    This is a program that we offer and it is not done through the engine mfg's.

    Ok, it is still simple. Buy the super oil from Hustler and get a longer warranty.
