It has nothing to do with you or where you post, Nate. I understand you have a product to sell, but you also understand that we have a responsibility to the members of this Forum to provide the most accurate information we can.
We've been saying the same things about synthetic oils and change intervals since long before you ever bought your first Amsoil product, much less became a dealer.
You and I have been friends a long time, but that doesn't mean I change my opinions on lubrication because you are now an Amsoil dealer. You have to respect my position here, and the responsibilities I have to the members of this Forum.
Until you provide proof that synthetic oils actually prevent wear in OUR drivetrains, and that there is some added benefit to a motor that is renowned for 200k and 300k lifetimes, the only TANGIBLE benefits will remain peace of mind and longer change intervals.
I know what you're saying and where you're coming from with your role. I'm just saying that it always comes up. I wasn't asking for special treatment, I'm not even trying to sell anything in this post. I don't even know what kinda proof you want.
My 15W-40 in my diesel will pour out of the one gallon jug at -44* hehe...I know what you mean about cold winters. I don't worry about plugging my truck in since I went synthetic....On dino it wouldn't start if I didn't plug it in most times....went to Synthetic and never had an issue. Plus with everything being quieter with synthetic....My neighbors quite pissing and moaning about my engine noise...they just complain about the truck being straight piped lol.
