It's Amsoil XL, it's mostly group III base stock at a boutique oil pricing, I'd probably use Mobil 1 EP or PP before I'd use Amsoil XL, and they carry many manufacturer specifications which are important if you care about keeping your warranty on a newer car.

Really
I’m just searching around for an oil that’s a really good oil for an annual change.
My wife drives a 2017 Ecoboost 2.0L and she logs about 6K miles a year.
I’ve always done 2 changes a year with synthetic oil, but now would like to do an annual change and be done with it !

Open for suggestion !!!👍

The XL is a fine oil and turns in great UOAs. Use with confidence.

Yeah, this is a good oil, but there are comparables at lower cost. If you're on their preferred plan, it's does close the gap a bit. I'm doing about 7-8k OCI's on this in the EB. I'm running a UOA next OCI just to see how it's going, but that's going to be awhile (lack of use).

I can't see the cost benefit of using Amsoil but Amsoil puts out a quality blended oils..

Good oil that I would have no problem running in a turbo application.

Our Fleet and Farm has this on the shelves too.

10 bucks for 1 quart? I saw 10 quarts of Kirkland @ Costco for 22 bucks today.

9.95 / 2.20 = 4.5 times the cost? That must be some amazing stuff.

Yeap your correct in the fact that Amsoil is an expensive oil
That’s very true
But the guys who purchase an oil like Amsoil, Redline, Driven and other boutique oils don’t really care about the cost, it’s not a money thing to them. In my searching around and the reason for this post Is, I’m looking for a high quality oil that I can do a once a year oil change and forget it.
So if I spend $60 bucks on oil once a year and not have to crawl under my car 3 times a year to change it.
I’ll spend the extra cash every time !!👍

I still don’t get this war on expensive oils. If you want to buy Kirkland no one is stopping you but that doesn’t mean other people can’t get the warm and fuzzies from buying what they perceive to be a superior product. I have only recently come back here and it used to be a much friendlier place.

For someone like me who doesn't drink or smoke, it bothers me none spending $8.45 a quart for Schaeffer oil either. In my opinion 60$ a year is nothing if you wanna run Amsoil.

No-one can judge another person on how they wish to spend their money.
