    Amsoil

    Yes, if you do your research, it is the best product available, period. For those of you who think using Amsoil is wasting World resources, let me correct you.

    Amsoil is formulated from 100% U.S. derived base-stock and additives. That's another reason to use it or begin using it. My 2002 R1150RT has never been happier or run cooler than when I flushed the old crap out that the last owner was using and fed all systems pure Amsoil.

    Does your tranny clink, clunk or make any type of noise when going into 1st, or when up and downshifting? If you want it to shift like butter, use 75W140 Severe Gear. The 75W90 doesn't do it and Amsoil's 140 has a flow rate that is identical to the 90 weight.

    Not sure that dealers should be posting advertisements in the Forum.

    We're all already aware of Amsoil and its marketing claims. It's entirely possible they're true.

    But they don't need to be repeated here.

    Does "pure Amsoil" come premixed with the Marvel Mystery Oil?

    If it was best, some auto companies would use it for factory fill and specify it.

    If it was best it would be a big company and some of today's big companies would be smaller.

    If those without education knew more than those who have it, there'd be no universities.

    If BMW mechanics knew more than BMW engineers, they'd be on their way to Germany for a better job.

    But, the world would be a less interesting place without delusions.

    Sure, but can you vouch that all the processed dinosaurs were not illegals?

    This falls under the marketing theory that any publicity is good publicity. We might as well throw Seafoam and STP into the mix.

    BTW, shouldn't all these posts by the OP be moved to the Campfire forum?

    Some forums have a "Crapper" section....The door to that is closed and posts like this can sit there and stink without bothering anybody!

    I wonder if any amsoil "dealers" also try to convert the heathens such as myself??

    I can't imagine how hard it would be to get "That Guy" off of your porch . First I'd have to turn down the free magazine and then he'd notice the Mobil 1 and Shell Rotella boxes. . .
