Ken Clacher of Penn Valley Calif. has been an AMSOIL customer for nine years.
Clacher drives a 2001 Ford F-150 that he purchased new. It took convincing for him to try AMSOIL products.
“At first I was very skeptical about a company making a claim that you can drive 25,000 miles without changing the oil. That’s crazy and not possible,” Clacher said. “After reading that AMSOIL is the only approved synthetic for aircraft it sounded credible. So I started using it 280,000 miles ago, when the truck had 20,000 miles on it. I have never had any engine work done. I have replaced brakes and tires and done front suspension work, as well as other maintenance.”
Clacher uses AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil 10W-30 and EaO oil filters.
His gas mileage has improved some using AMSOIL motor oil. “It is a work truck and I haul a lot of equipment, but before AMSOIL I got about 15.3 mpg; with AMSOIL I get about 15.8,” Clacher said. He attributes that increase in gas mileage to using AMSOIL products.
Clacher likes AMSOIL products because they save him time and money and give him peace of mind.
“I’m busy,” Clacher said. “One big advantage is not having to change oil every month. I am also impressed by the fact I don’t have to use any other additives in the oil.
“I am a firm believer that AMSOIL has kept my truck alive. And to top it off, the truck uses very little oil between oil changes. Whenever, I change the spark plugs they are clean. The engine purrs, has plenty of power. My goal now is to get 500,000 miles on the truck. I am sure by then everything else may fall apart, but the motor probably will still be alive.”

Clacher’s satisfaction with AMSOIL motor oil led him to start using AMSOIL products in all of his other motorized equipment and vehicles.
“I switched everything else I own to AMSOIL products — riding lawn mower, ATVs, my wife’s vehicle (which just turned 100,000 miles), he said. “It means fewer oil changes for me. I’m also hoping her vehicle will get to 300,000 miles, so I don’t have to worry about purchasing a new vehicle.
“Thanks for a great product.”
