EALER RUSSELL SANDERLIN SR of Orlando,
FL attributes the high mileage on his
2000 Ford Explorer to the performance
qualities of AMSOIL products. In fact,
the truck turned over to 570,000 miles in
March 2011. He typically travels about
65,000 miles a year.
Sanderlin has had nothing but success
with AMSOIL products. I got my Explorer
new and have used AMSOIL from
day one, he said. In 2000, he started
with AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30 in the
crankcase, then switched to Signature
Series 0W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil (SSO).
A rear main seal went bad and leaks
some oil. So, I now use the AMSOIL SAE
60 Racing Oil (AHR) with the AMSOIL
Absolute Efficiency Oil Filter (EAO15),
and they work great, Sanderlin said. I
am still maintaining the same efficiency,
exceeding the 21 MPG highway as shown on
the new sales sticker. I had the oil pan gasket
replaced at 500,000 miles. My mechanic was amazed the
engine was so clean and sludge-free.
He says he has customers who use petroleum
oil that they change every 3,000
miles that still show sludge deposits.
Sanderlin uses AMSOIL Automatic
Transmission Fluid (ATF) in the transmission
and power steering. They both
operate like new and are repair-free, he
In the differential, he uses AMSOIL Synthetic
75W-90 Long Life Gear Oil (FGR).
I just had the .. uid replaced in the
differential after 500,000 miles, and my
mechanic could not believe there was
zero play, as if the differential had been
assembled by the manufacturer the day
before, Sanderlin said.
Sanderlin also uses AMSOIL Synthetic
DOT-3 Brake Fluid.
