    For what it's worth I have also been a dealer for the past 10-11 years. Have been using the stuff in everything since I could drive. I haven't had any issues yet. Like the previous dealer I'm not much of a sales person. I bought the dealership to get things at cost and extend that to family and friends. If anyone is interested at getting it at cost let me know.

    List of things I use Amsoil in...
    • 2007 Jeep GC Lifted (Sold 175,000) - Everywhere but Trans
    • 2005 Jeep GC 192,000 - Everywhere but Trans
    • HF Perdator 3500 watt generator - Oil and P.I. Treatment
    • Generac 8000E generator - Oil and P.I. Treatment
    • 2017 Tundra 34,000 - Oil, Oil Filter, Diffs, (Soon) Transmission, Undercoat with Heavy Duty Metal Protector
    • 2016 Polaris Ranger - Oil, Oil Filter, and Diffs

    Shell Rotella Gas Truck beat Mobil 1 in every category. Think they have yet to test it against Amsoil though.

    No experience with Amsoil. Know guys who swear by it but never tried it. I've always ran Mobil 1 in all my vehicles. Figure if it's good enough to come from the factory in new Vettes than it works for what I drive.

    Where I work the fleet gets yearly oil changes with bulk bid conventional oil and the cheapest filter available. Our 2001 F-150 has 293,00 miles on it, only thing changed motor wise was the water pump and intake manifold only because a guy blew a radiator hose and drove it 6 miles on the highway to get it back here. High tech, expensive synthetic oil may make you "feel" better, but I bet for the most part the engine doesn't give to hoots !

    Newb question.

    Why do some Tundra owners run 5W-30 instead of 0W-20?

    Because they think they know more than the engineers who designed the motor.
