  • I recently started working for a new company that sells amsoil. They want me to put the mileage on the sticker at 10,000 to 15,000 miles. How? Used oil is from carbon deposits on the cylinder wall and a different oil isnt going to change that. I asked their rep and he said because tye filter is so much better. Then how does the filter not get clogged? How can I in good conscience put 15,000 miled?

Good question. Your boss may not always be right, but he always your boss. Carbon deposits are created by heat and oxidation. Almsoil is a synthetic and it does not oxidize as much as mineral oil. However, I believe that every service technician should adhere to what the vehicle manufacturer recommends.
