I'm not denying that it's mentioned and recommended often. My point is that Bob is doing it because he believes in it and not to make a quick buck. He's a good guy and as I said makes very little off of it because he gives us discounts. I've seen the research and read the reviews.
Someone told me about some guy that used Amsoil and had it tested every 1000 miles and it didn't stand up as well as it claimed. Then he did the same with some other oil (Mobil 1 maybe?) and it lasted longer. I think the problem it had was it got thick. I hope someone knows what I'm talking about and can elaborate.
Regardless, Amsoil is well known, widely used and trusted and does reduce friction when compared to conventional oil. I want the best for my truck so spending more for what I view as better isn't a problem for me. This is why I try to only put Chevron in my truck even if it's higher or out of the way. It all boils down to personal preference. If you wanna use Crisco in your engine well then more power to ya but I will still recommend what I view to be superior.
