    ;lol

    As I said, I can only make myself run it in harder to replace stuff. Hell, I still have engines that I run Non-detergent in. (open crankcase total loss systems).

    For 20 years I've had no issues running Amsoil, none. Very Happy.. I use their grease, etc, with all great results... I love their EA air filters,,, like a Cat,,, just vacuum them off and you good to go again. Test results have shown better air flow the K&N filters and no oily mess to deal with or the cleaning solution that you have to use with the K&N air fliters.. Nice thing,,, when it's below zero , things start and are lubed..

    I also slide a 5 gallon bucket under my stock height, stock tires, F350 to change the oil in the 7.3 diesel.

    T6 5-40 btw.

    There's a few more that stayed home too. :) The funny part is that I know a few guys who run synthetic in these too. Gets expensive really fast.

    Somewhere there are a bunch of pics of me as a teen manning the engine show at our county fair. Those of us that have been to the Dutchess County Fair know that engine display is pretty big.

    Thanks for posting those.:cool:
