Anyone else try it or better yet, live by it?
    If you use the Amsoil and the EAO oil filter you are good for at least 25,000 miles or 1 year. Just check your oil level and make sure it's full. If your vehicle is using oil then you have other mechanical issues to take care of first. If you ever had an engine failure you thought was due to the Amsoil all you have to do is report it and they will ask for a sample of the oil & the oil filter. They test it to make sure it is Amsoil (not diluted with other products or oils), and to see if the oil properties broke down or not. They can even tell you what led to the engine failure.
    I use the Amsoil & EAO filter on all my vehicles and go about 20,000 miles before changing only because if I go 25,000 miles it seems like it always needs to be changed in the winter months and I hate laying in the snow.

    -----anyone wanting any info on how to do oil changes cheap, just post----I have been doing my own oil changes for over 20 years-----this practice also keeps the neighbours on their toes and interested in what you are doing, then they realize that their vehicle probably needs maintenance ( silverhobey in Canada )
    I change oil all the time lol... My point is if you change your oil sooner than the computer says your just wasting oil. Again it reads the breakdown of the oil via driving habits. My truck usually goes about 4k before the change oil light comes on.... no im not talking about the "low oil" light, they are different.

    Ya gotta love these religion, oops, oil, debates...

    You can't find a car/truck forum on the internet where this is not debated and beaten like the poor dead horse it is all the way down to the carcass...

    Whatever your religion and snake oil of choice is. Send a used sample off to a lab and have it analyzed. The truth shall set you free my brothers and sisters...

    Can I get an Amen!!!!

    Thanks for the info! Really leaning towards doing this as it seems to be a wise choice. Did you use the Amsoil Flush before switching your vehicles to Amsoil when you bought them?

    I only use the flush if the vehicles already have over 30,000 miles on them.
