Schaeffers Oil

Hey guys I am looking into switching from Amsoil engine oil to schaeffers. Does anybody have any input if it is any good? All I know is that schaeffers is about 3-4 bucks cheaper a gallon compared to Amsoil. Thanks for any input.

Re: Schaeffers Oil

I have a rep that I can get it from, just wondering if it is better or equivalent to Amsoil.

I've got the 7000 15w-40 synth blend in my 7.3, and the 9000 5w-40 full synth in my 6.0. I went with the 9000 for my 6.0 because it's rode hard and put up wet, and we all know they need all the help they can get just to make it out of the driveway
