Amsoil vs Mobil 1

Has anyone with an amsoil system switched to Mobil 1 or other type of synthetic oil. I have the dual filter system, but it is a pain to order from amsoil, as well as keep a membership with them. Are the oils them same? Could I used the off the shelf filters that have been posted here and another synthetic oil? Thanks dor the help.

Eli,

You can use any properly rated oil, synthetic or dino, with the Amsoil filter system. It is just a filter and does not change the engine requirements or needs.

I'm currently running Valvoline Premium Blue Extreme synthetic. NAPA has is it, but I had to order it and wait.

Great. Thanks for the info. You don't happen to have the filter part numbers that you can get through a local shop?

From an earlier thread:

viewtopic.php?f=39&t=3871&hilit=amsoil+filter

Wix 51411 and 51620. Napa 1411 and 1620. Chances are you will have order them from a local store. Order more than one and order replacements when you use your last one.

FYI, Pagnanos on Alton Lane (off Piner) carries Amsoil products.
It's a great little one man shop. His lift will handle our vans. I had him mount and balance new tires last month.
