Amstiol full synthetic ????

Today I put Amstoil in All three holes it cost less than what it would have cost for full synthetic from the steeler and will last twice as long . Is anyone else running Amstoil?

That's Amsoil, and you'll find a million threads about it. Many use it, others prefer the next brand. Very good oil though.

ZMan convinced me to switch to Mobil1. V-Twin when I could not find Amsoil anywhere around Shark Week Wal-Mart had Mobil1. The Wally Worlds around here don't, but the box parts houses do, for the same price.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

Do you mix it or do you use Amsoil in some holes and Syn 3 in others? Never heard of any one mixing two different oils before.

I use amsoil in all three holes.It's a true synthetic and not just highly refined dino oil like so many other "synthetics".I use 75/140 in the trans,syn atf in the primary and 20/50 in the engine.

on my 02,I always ran amsoil,and got 75,000 out of the original "bad design" cam chain tensioners.pretty sold on it here.
