What thinner oil means for you

| October 16, 2012

Gambill notes that over the past 30 or 40 years, the industry partnership that creates new oil categories has worked well, sharing the tens of millions of dollars in research and development to establish new oil categories.

Even those oil companies have huge investments to recoup, Gambill says truck buyers trust lubricant marketers to think before instituting price increases, taking into account that the cost of trucks, parts and diesel fuel all are going up. “We’ve got to be responsible,” he says. “We spend a lot of time as an industry on that and trying to do the right thing.”

    Thats why I use AMSoil and have been for sometime now. It cuts down on the wear and tare on parts and lasts much longer than petroleum based oils and their filters are much better than anything on the market today. Most filters have a 40-80% efficiency rating but Amsoil’s has a 98.7% rating, another reason the oil stays much cleaner longer. Try it yourself and you won’t go back, and they have a Preferred Customer program where you can buy at wholesale. Love it.

    The EPA is concerned about emissions and rightfully so. However making a truck or any vehicles less fuel efficient to lower emissions seems to going about it backwards. If the EPA is pushing the trucking industry so hard (granted we run the highest miles) it is time push the car industry as well. Not that I want to pay more for my next car but takes a joint effort across the board to effectuate change. Truck, bus, car, plane, train all need to do their part to truly make a difference.
