EALER TERRY ANDERSON JR. of Chesapeake, VA. saves
money, time and fuel using AMSOIL products.
In fact, he saved $5,679 the first year he switched to
AMSOIL lubes, filters and additives.
Anderson, owner of Terry Anderson Jr. Hauling Inc.,
owns and operates a 2005 Peterbilt dump truck with a
Cat C-7 engine. He first installed AMSOIL 15W-40
Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Motor Oil and
an Ea Oil Filter in the truck. About a month later, he
installed an AMSOIL By-Pass filtration system.
“Initially, I was concerned about the upfront cost of
about $400, but I soon found out it was money well
spent,” he said.
Used oil analysis at 10,000 and 25,000 miles deemed
the oil suitable for continued use, and he continued to
run on the same oil
“I changed my full flow filter after the second sample
was sent in,” Anderson said. “The money I saved on oil
alone in the first 25,000 miles paid for the by-pass filter
system.” At one year, and more than 50,000 miles on
the same oil, a third oil analysis reported the oil good
for continued use. “The savings in the oil changes alone
is enough to justify using AMSOIL and the by-pass filter
system,” Anderson said. “More surprising was the
increased fuel efficiency I saw on a daily basis.”
He typically changes the oil in the Peterbilt four or
five times a year at $159 each change. “That is $759 a
year,” he said. “I didn’t have to get my hands dirty
changing the oil at all for a year thanks to AMSOIL and
the by-pass filter system.”
Anderson also realized increased fuel efficiency.
“After changing my Peterbilt over to AMSOIL lubricants
and filters, I saw an increase in my fuel efficiency of one
mile per gallon,” he said. His fuel efficiency increased
again when he used AMSOIL Diesel Concentrate and
Cetane Boost. “MPG is huge in my world,” Anderson
said. “The more miles I can go on one gallon, the more
money I put in the bank.
“With diesel fuel prices edging close to $5 a gallon,
AMSOIL lubricants, filters and additives have saved my
company about $30 a day in improved fuel efficiency.”
Savings he realized in the first 15 days with AMSOIL
products paid for his initial investment, Anderson said.
“The remainder of the year that $30 a day went straight
to the bank along with the savings from the extended
