WNERS OF MOTORHOMES, who often travel long distances, are particularly concerned
with finding ways to save on fuel and oil. These concerns have taken on a new urgency
with the steep increases in fuel prices in recent months.
A Texas man discovered that AMSOIL motor oils and lubricants lived up to all of his
expectations in a journey from Texas to Alaska and back in 2004.
"I have a 1998 Dutch Star by Newmar 38-foot motorhome with a 300 horsepower Cat engine,"
said Shelby Rash, Richardson, Texas. "I also tow a car behind."
Throughout 2003, Rash averaged 7.1 miles per gallon. "I use AMSOIL products and I
believe in them," Rash said.
He took AMSOIL 15W-40 Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Oil, an AMSOIL oil filter,
Torque-Drive Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid for power steering / hydraulics, and the
AMSOIL Synthetic Multi-Purpose Grease to to a shop in Dallas in January 2004.
"They installed AMSOIL in everything, including the grease-fittings," Rash said.
"I installed a new AMSOIL air filter and oiled the front wet axles myself. I filled
up with diesel and added AMSOIL Cetane Boost and Diesel Fuel Additive to the tank, as
Then Rash took his four-month, 11,000-mile trip. "I used the two additives each time
I filled up," he said. "I also attended two RV rallies where I 'dry-camped with a
generator' for a total of 10 days during this time." The only thing he did was change
the oil filter during the period.
"I averaged 8.6 miles per gallon for these 11,000 miles," Rash said. "This sure helped
with the high fuel peices. Just by changing to AMSOIL I averaged 1.5 miles per gallon
better. Is AMSOIL worth a try? I think so."
