I feel personally reading the literature that Amsoil makes the best oil available and no I don't sell the stuff. I just can't seem to get my hands on it when its oil change time so I'm using Mobil 1 right now. 0W-30 is fine if thats what your car calls for, or I'd try it if the car calls for 5W-30 even...

Mobil 1's are pretty good. don't know about Amsoil 0w30 but i used their 20W50 and i like it!
Just one question "WHY" Why do you like it?

What I've learned reading about engine construction:

In order to deliver sufficient lubrication to ALL internal engiing parts our engines have a lot of specialy engineered oil passages of certain shapes and diameters. If the engine manufacturer specifies an oil weight, that what we must use. I've heard that myth that older engines call for a thicker oil. But thicker oil will not get to all the internal points that requier lubrication on time. So the engine will run DRY. The worst you can do to your buddy.

A word about AMSOIL. If you check their web site: they are the best. But not all their produsts are API certified. Do you know WHY?
Do the internet search...

ahh.. why do i like 20W50 or why do i like AMSoil?

i'm sorry but i'm one of those people that actually trusts my own judgement and experience rather than listening to what the dealer says.

btw, the motor i'm running is a high temp, high comp motor. it requires thick oil for the way i use it.;)
