It is hard to imagine that Amsoil could last 25,000 miles.



I think it could on a non GDI / forced induction engine with 6-7 qt capacity with a fram ultra filter. But if by only topping off that may be tough. Having to replace a filter half way through just kills the cost effectiveness if there was any even more. I ran the Fu7317 for over 21000 miles but on two oci.

Yep, especially if the choke knob was pulled out and forgotten as it happened quite a bit in those days.
