Arctic Cat is not going to sell a second rate oil ...... they are the ones who have to pay for the burn downs so I would assume that that the oil far exceeds what is reqired.....and if you feel the need to over kill on additives you dont need then that is you choice.......I use synthetic APV oil and pay around the same as torco and similar knock off brands.
I never said second rate. Infact, I said there is nothing wrong with it.
Don't worry about using it, it won't be the cause of a burn down, but it will also produce more ash, won't provide as much protection if something like you oil pump goes on the fritz, might not smell as nice, won't give you as much top end as some synthetics, etc, etc. And it will definitely get you through your warrenty period.
But not second rate, I was just saying you can pay for better if you want or feel the need. And in fact, I pay about the same for Amsoil as I did for AC oil.
Amsoil all the way. Become a preffered customer or dealer. You will save the fee on the first case. A 4L jug for $22 can.
We compared plugs running on bombi reg for 1400kliks compared to plugs that were running with amsoil for 2200kliks and the difference was night and day. The amsoil plugs looked so clean. the bombi plugs were very dirty with chunks of residue. It was enough for the guy to wanna switch. Basically it works out to a better product for less denero's.
