ED PICKUL OF SARASOTA, FL DRIVES a 1992 Geo Prizm with unusally high miles. In February
2005 the Prizm had more than 362,000 miles on 15 oil changes and 31 filter changes.
Pickul credits AMSOIL products with extending the life of his car's engine.
Pickul bought the Prizm new in June of 1992, and after 3,000 miles converted it to
AMSOIL 10W-30 Synthetic Motor OIl. Pickul also installed an AMSOIL 2-stage Air Filter.
He changed to AMSOIL Automatic Transmission Fluid at 30,000 miles, and has changed it
five times in the 300,000+ miles since.
After owning the car for one year, Pickul switched the engine coolant to AMSOIL
PG biodegradable anti-freeze and coolant, which he replaces at two-year intervals. He
uses a 16-ounce bottle PI Gasoline Additive every three or four months, and every 30,000
miles he treats the car to AMSOIL Power Foam Carburetor and Engine Cleaner. At 200,000
miles Pickul switched to AMSOIL 10W-40.
Pickul has demonstrated complete faith in AMSOIL to keep his engine running smoothly.
"In November 2003 with 329,000 miles onthe engine, I frove the car from Sarasota, FL
to Carbondale, IL wothout stopping," said Pickul. The 13-hour trip was "a true tribute
to the AMSOIL-ization of this vehicle," he said.
The Prizm has a 1.6 liter 4-cylinder engine that has never had any major problems.
The valve cover was removed at 360,000 miles and it was exceptionally clean.
