after signing up to buy Amsoil from Amsoil, I get all kinds of struff in the mail telling me I can make money selling amsoil products (from amsoil).

pfft, $50/gallon is just to much.

Last time I went with the Repsol Synthetic because it was $35 for 4 liters.

Why do American manufacturers always look at it this way? What happened to real American products? They used to be superior in quality and either equal in price or less. Makes the decision easy. I mean look at cars. Same thing. I mean why should we have to pay more for something that didn't have to travel half way across the world to get here?

Well because our government decided to enact minimum wage, and one thousand other laws regarding employment causing the american people to be very expensive.

Less per mile? Going off the manufacture's recommended oil change intervals it is not. Just because you can, doesn't mean it will be a good idea when still under drivetrain warranty.

FYI, yes, I used it on my truck. AFTER the warranty was expired.

The 3500 Texas State Police vehicles have immediately switched to AMSOIL 20,000 mile oil and filter intervals (severe service) for the past 10 years and have had no warranty problems using AMSOIL in brand new vehicles.
Not dependent on mileage really now?

Which warranty are you referring to? Chrysler requires a oil change to be performed before 6,000 miles or a year, as regular maintenance, and if determined regular maintenance has not been followed it can void your warranty.
I know this guy who is a mechanic he told me so.

The Chrysler warranty only recommends oil changes to be performed before 6,000 miles or a year, but does not require it.

I trust what an auto manufacturer says over what a mechanic says. “The New Vehicle Warranty would not be void simply
because an owner failed to use proper engine oils or
did not perform maintenance at the prescribed inter-
vals. Warranty applicability is contingent upon the
cause of failure.”

Is it ok for me to use 0w-20 in my 2007 diesel? Not my fault right?
