Thanks everyone.

Hey to start this off right and in the spirit of The 4th of July. I'm offering free shipping until the 18th of July. That way those that are on vacation and can't get on here till they get home will be able to partake in the free shipping.

For a quote delivered to your door, just let me know what you want to order, oil, filters, transmission fluid, what every you are interested in. I just need your name, UPS delivery address and phone number and I will get a quote right out to you.

Thanks,
Nick

This looks interesting. What is the difference between the 100% Synthetic and the Synthetic labeled oils?

Synthetic lubricants are engineered, synthesized lubricants consisting of 100% PAO (Poly-Alpha-Olefin) Formulated Basestock Technology, and maybe made to fulfill virtually every lubricating need. The molecular uniformity of synthetic lubricants promote superior lubrication and friction reduction, which in turn promotes superior heat control, wear control and energy efficiency. Molecular uniformity also helps synthetics maintain their protective viscosity in high-temperature operations, which also promotes superior wear control. Because they are derived from pure chemicals, synthetic lubricants contain no contaminants or molecules that “don’t pull their own weight.” Synthetic Lubricants contain no paraffin or wax molecules like conventional lubricants.
This is the advantage to a PAO group IV oil. Today most oil manufactures are making "synthetic" oil that is not a PAO based oil but a group III which is just regular conventional oil that is processed to a group III and is legally allowed to be called a synthetic even though it isn't a PAO synthetic. Mobil 1 extended performance, Redline, Royal Purple and Castrol's German made 0w-30 are a few that are a PAO based oils. I think the new Valvoline is PAO based now as well but I'm not 100% sure. The rest of the market are group III based synthetics.

Did I confuse anyone. All Crystal clear right?:D

AMSOIL produced the first API certified synthetic oil back in 1972. It was a 10w-40 weight oil.

Another question: What's the difference between your Amsoil branded

SAE 5W-30 100% Synthetic Motor Oil
SAE 5W-30 XL Synthetic Motor Oil

There is about a 2.00 per quart difference in price, but it doesn't say if one is full synth and the other a mix.
Are they both synthetic?

Good question! The XL line is AMSOIL's API certified line of oil for those that want to use an API certified oil. It is also a Group III as I explained above. The XL line is the only Group III that AMSOIL sells except the Diesel 15w-40 blend. That is why the cost is lower since it isn't as expensive to process. The XL line is good for 7,500 miles or six months which ever comes first on oil changes. It works great for those that follow the OLM on their vehicles or like to change their oil out on a 6 month time frame.

Keep the questions coming. :)

What kind of fluids you recommend for the diff and trans in my Tacoma. Its a 6 speed manual.


Hey,

You would need 5qts of the Severe Gear 75w-90 gear lube for your rear diff and 4qts of the ATL automatic transmission fluid for you transmission if you just do a filter change. Total fill would need 11qts.

If you want a quote I need your name, mailing address that UPS delivers to.

Thanks,
Nick

His truck has a manual trans. Might still use autotrans fluid (don't know) but thought you'd like to know.

You betcha
i fail I guess I thought all AMSOIL was 100% synthetic. I've been using XL 5w30. Been very happy with it though! I push it further than 7500 miles though :D
