yep, for a cheap oil.
Just like extended oil drains in a vehicle. Cheap oil you change at xxx miles. A quality synthetic you change at xxxxx miles based on oil analyst.

My vehicles get an oil change at 15-20 K miles, or once a year
I don't use wally world oil though ! LOL

Uhhhhh.......because the manufacturer calls for 50:1 ??
And not doing that may cause warranty issues....??
I use a quality oil. I don't worry about warranty issues. I haven't had a failure in 30+ years. I don't expect any in the next 30 +

If I do, perhaps encounter issues, I'll change the way of doing things. But as long as Amsoil says their oil is good @100:1, I'll run 100:1.
30 + trouble free yrs is a pretty good record /test for me

I have / can cut all day with my 10 yr old 372 and my 20+ yr old rancher 55, and they still fire right up and run like new

Oh and FYI. they can deny a warranty claim for any reason they see fit. They can claim improper gasoline, oil was no good, etc, It's up to you to prove them wrong . you gonna spend the money to sue them over a $1000.00 chain saw ?
I have seen warranties denied for many reasons.

well, If you were to read the history, you would know, that's how Amsoil got it's start. LOL

Most (if not all) manufacturers of heavy equipment, jet engine, etc, have oil blended with specific add packages for their engines. Many years ago that wasn't the case.

Most likely, Amsoil doesn't want to get in the lube market for those types of engines.
They may very well could blend it for those manufactures.

Best cold weather synthetic for the price here in Alaska is John Deere.
I use 0w40 and their cold weather rated hydraulic fluid. Everything else is very expensive.
Will likely use 75w90 Amsoil Severe gear in the gears.(I still have three quarts left from doing the vehicles.
Best extreme cold grease is probably Valvoline Synpower full synthetic grease, especially for the price.

Whoa, how cheap was that oil? And filter too? Pretty rare to see any 40 year old cars on the road. What you drinking…😉

$8 for a Napa Gold oil filter, $4 per quart of oil, that’s $24. Not cheap stuff either so I believe it.

You wouldn't happen to be a dealer or have some other financial connection to them would you? Sure sounds like it.

Now i use Rotella T6. A lot of the piston aircraft use Aeroshell or sometimes Phillips 66 X/C Aviation. Aeroshell has been popular piston aircraft oil many years. But not sure why that would be important. Aircraft engines such as Lycoming and Contenial certainly have different requirements than a diesel tractor.
