    Amsoil has recently released a new by-pass filtration kit for heavy duty applications. Thought I might let everyone know who has construction equipment or bigger trucks that there is something available to extend your engine oil life. Click the link below for more information. Sign up as a commercial account and save 20-30% off the retail prices shown. A certificate is included with each kit for one free oil analysis when purchased.

    Yes. The kit does not include any hose due to the wide variance in uses. The hose is available by the foot, but you could make your own and put it anywhere you wanted.

    Yes, that's right. I am a sponsor providing information about the product I sell. That is what us sponsors do. So where exactly are you going with this open-ended statement?

    From past experiences on several different forums for diesel trucks, I've seen these threads turn into huge ugly debates. I've actually enjoyed the fact that so far since joining this forum I've never seen that happen and I hope it doesn't happen.

    That's cool and I fully understand. I don't like it when negativity is posted even when it does not involve me. Several of my threads have had a touch of nastiness (usually directed to me), but tends to run its course and end peacefully. I tend to put information out there for everyone to see. What they take from it and say about it is beyond my control, but as a sponsor, I see it necessary to provide the info on products I sell.

    Well, I do think that some diesel truck forum members tend to have 'My truck is tough & I'm tough too' attitudes that sometimes lead to forum wars, some of which are about oil & filter brands. So far I've happily not seen that here in this forum (Heavy Equip. & Pavement), but I rarely read any of the other forums on this site.

    I wish you well with your products though!
