It'* your money, but I'd challenge you to tell us why Amsoil is better in any way than any other oil out there.

Dino juice will take your car hundreds of thousands of miles just fine. The only reason I go Mobil is for extended intervals between changes.

wilren what kind of study have you done on oil and i would suggest b4 u start talking crap to me about amsoil oil u need to go to their website and look at it and study it and you will see what i mean.

And i will be running a napa gold oil filter or maybe an amsoil 30,000 mile oil filter if they have one available for my car yet
