Just curious if anyone is using amsoil. If so and you'd like to save some money on it, pm me or send me and email address and i'll help you become a dealer. I've found that as long as you ride for at least 500 miles you can save money becoming a dealer.

I paid 100 dollars US for 5 gallons of polaris synthetic.. The price marked on the jugs was $69.99(2.5 gallon US ).... Still seemed expensive?... I had both sleds serviced at this dealership and they guy said he was giving me a great deal on the oil if I bought 5 gallons....

i always use amsoil and i think it is a very dependable oil. im running the dominator racing in a pre mix motor and the ves have no carbon or gum on them at all. nice and clean. I think the best thing about ams oil is even the low end is still full synthetic. now that it is getting more popular you can find it at more and more gas stops .

I second that. Ran it one year and that was enough for me.

I guess I got robbed[/b]

I think not! I only wish we could buy Polaris Blue for that price. Locally the Blue sells for $28 a gallon while the VES is $15/quart - we can't get two gallons of of it for under $100. It sounds like a steal to me.

I have Citgo Sea and Snow shipped in for right around $105 for five gallons. Lots of miles on lots of machines says it is all that is needed in non-valved engines.

I have used it in my 700 since I purchased the sled. That's what the previous owner had been running, seemed good enough for me.

Finally made the switch in the 500 as well, last season. From the Polaris oil.

I've read a few places about it smelling worse than other oils. I guess I don't notice it any more than the others out there.

Sadly, I don't usually go thru much oil, the little I actually get to ride. . . . :cussing:

I made the switch to Citgo this season as well. I know that your lucky enough to live in Alaska and all but here I pay $9 a gallon, we can't always ride but we do get some good deals once in a while :)

... I'm just wondering... how come you can't buy the gold ves Polaris oil in larger than 1gallon containers? It would be nice to make less trips to the dealer. Last time I bought 4 gallons of the stuff. That's 12 gallons so far this year (3 snowmobiles).

I used amsoil in my old sled, worked great from what I could tell. 8000 miles on a polaris fuji tripple. You dont hear of many fuji's tripples that make it past 5000 miles.

My 600 HO uses Polaris VES, the stuff smells so good that I cant imagine switching, although I somtimes want to give it a taste because it smells so darn good.

Used to use Amsoil but with the sled I now ride and the slow style of riding I couldn't see the need, Shell Advance here.

I'm a dealer also. I usually round up whatever I pay to the nearest dollar. If your local, let me know. I'll hook you up. Right now 4 gallons of interceptor is about $27/gal. I can ship too, but it may cost a little more.

Sorry guys, not trying to steal business. Just trying to help out fellow SW riders. That why I became a dealer in the first place.

I use the heavy duty diesel/marine oil in my truck. I love it!! If your interested in saving money there too, let me know. 25,000 between changes, better cold starts, superior protection.

What DONT I use Amsoil in? We run it in Dodgzilla, the sleds, chainsaw, whipper snipper, outboard motors, and the lawnmower. We are dealers as well save the $50 bones on the first order.

I have to agree with you on that. Weed Eater, push mower, riding mower, snowblower, all cars in the family, chainsaw, etc. What I love about Amsoil is the detailed information available on the product, the detailed testing, and the performance guarantees. It always does EXACTLY what Amsoil says it will do. I changed to Amsoil in my car Nov 2005. Now (march 16/07) I'm still running that original oil, with 18,000 km on it now, and lab testing still reports the oil is good. Amsoil might be a tad more expensive than some other brands on the shelf, but nobody else does it better, and in the long run it's CONSIDERABLY cheaper on the pocket.

Just my totally unbiased 2 cents :whistling:
