Re: oil brand

Come on man, you don't need to start 5 different pointless topics to meet your 5 post requirements. You just have to reply to any post 5x. You can do it the annoying way and provide zero insight to an existing topic like most, or find the thread that was started for this reason and post 5x of whatever nonsense you want. (hint; most of us prefer the latter

I'd like to use my second post in hopes of annoying everyone with this SPAM. Joined in '09 and made my first useless post less than a week ago. I plan on making many more. I enjoyed your reprimand - highlights the problem, yet also provides a lesser intrusive alternative. Stay tuned for post 3 in 2021. &#x1f609;

amsoil doesn't say what their oil actually is. ester is real synthetic oil. so is PAO. but amsoil seems to be hiding something. most of the synthetic oils you see on the shelf are nothing but conventional oil that's been refined more. sure it's slightly better than conventional oil. but it's not as good as oils made with ester or PAO.
yamalube says it is Ester.

for the same price as amsoil you can get Motul 7100 which is ester. yamalube is more expensive. and for $15 a quart you can get this, (what i use) 100% pure synthetics with 0% petroleum

Thanks for that... Wish I would have known before changing my clutch and oil the other day. Couldn't believe how much of a bitch the stock filter was to get off; probably took more time than anything else.

Yeah they regularly unearth 10 year old threads with a row of pointless replies.

Every blue moon when a mod drops in, they clean up the obviously named 5 Count Post Whore threads. But stuff like this gets left behind.

Given that, my recommendation to folks, is just to start their own 5 Count Post Whore thread. With such labels, we'll know to avoid clicking on them. (versus stuff like this)

It would be nice if @

would retitle this, "Calling All 5 Count Post Whores".
