Does anybody now much about Maxima or Torco oils?  I am looking for alternatives to the manufacturers brand.  I know Amsoil and Injex have good track records, but i wonder why you don't hear much about Maxima or Torco?  Is it because as I am from Minnesota all I hear about is the local Amsoil(superior,WI)? Just looking for some feedback, thanks.

I've been on here since March & there have been a couple of discussions about oil. Amsoil seems to be the most popular. I've run it for 2 seasons now.

There have been a few people use the Torco & Maxima oils.

I know alot of people have their opinionsabout Amsoil being the best.  The best oils is th oil that works for you and your sled.  Amsiol did not work for me.  I switched to the Klotz TC-W3 synthetic oil and love it.  It smells sweet and my sled seems to work well with it.  It runs about $30.00 (us)a gallon.

Best is a bad word

I started using the maxima thundr r (racing oil) in my sleds this last year.  I pulled my power valves and they looked good.  it has very little smoke,or smell.  i can not express how satisfied i am with it.   When you see the price you will be interested.

I'd go with either the Amsoil Race 2000 or the Klotz TCW3. Both are superb oils, the Klotz does have a nice smell. The Amsoil Race has really no smell at all. You can't miss with either oil. People riding behind you will thank you.

I personally use Amsoil because it has a big name and a very good price, the last time I bought some it was $13.00 a gallon.  But Maxima just isn't a very big name and I think some people think it is bad because of that, I have never used though.  Torco is not too big in the snowmobile world but is a big oil company and is said to be a really good oil.  There was a big oil artical on the home page of this site, but I think you can find it on Snow Tech's web page.

The regular Amsoil syntetic is probably way way more then enough for any sled.  

Klotz, Amsoil, Torco, Castrol Syntec, Redline are all oils i have used in the past.  This is what i found.

Engine condition: 1. Amsoil, 2. Klotz,3. Castrol, 4.Torco, 5. Redline(Blew an engine with redline.)  

Engine Power:  Didnt dyno so cant tell you. But didnt notice a diffrence.  

Engine Starting: All the same:

Smokeless: 1. Amsoil, 2. Castrol, 3. Klotz, 4. Torco, 5. Redline.

Rave Valve condition (Clean to Dirty): 1. Castrol, 2. Amsoil, 3. Klotz, Dont really know for the rest.

Price: 1. Castrol, 2. Amsoil, 3. Redline, 4. Torco, 5. Klotz.

So my best luck was with Amsoil and Castrol.  But they all do a job and are night and day better then factory dino oil.
