I think Amsoil is okay. If I could buy their best full-synthetic from a local store for a few bucks less than Mobil One, I'd consider using it.

I wouldn't go more than 10,000 miles between oil/filter changes with any oil/filter, no matter what the manufacturer claims. Dirty looking oil isn't necessarily bad but unless you go through the hassle of taking a sample and having it analyzed, it's better to just change it.

The primary reason I won't be using Amsoil is that I can get a 5 qt jug of Mobil One for $22 at Walmart. I bought a $10 Fram XL4967 filter for the first change but I think I'll go with another from here on. The Fram filter is smaller than the Toyota filter and I don't like that.

I've run at least a dozen different oils in at least a dozen different cars, motorcycles and trucks over the past 30 years with not one oil-related problem.

Interesting infomercial. I wonder what the trick is? High Zinc content for metal to metal protection? Luckily, modern engines never have any direct metal to metal contact unless something goes very wrong.
