Re: schaffers 15W-40

its the best you can buy. thats all i run now. my friend owns a auto repair shop and he has customers coming in saying they have noticed better gas mileage and more power. i think its because they use moly in there oil. they also start with a better base stock than other oils.

I've been running nothing but Schaeffer's for the last 4 years or so. Very pleased with it!

I run Schaeffers 9000 5w40 and I love how my truck starts in the mornings and it is quieter. Also compared to the Rotella Syn. Schaeffers is cheaper.

Yep, Been running the Schaeffer's 15W-40 in my 7.3L for a little over 2 years and I have had my best used oil analysis reports running it. I have run Rotella 15W-40, Delo 400, Amsoil 15W-40. Schaeffer's gave me the best results on my UOA reports, but Delo 400 was a very close 2nd.

The series 7000 15W-40 and the transmission fluid (204SAT) is all Brian at BTS uses FWIW.

Re: schaffers 15W-40

I really like the Schaeffer's. Both of my vehicles are starting/running better when cold with it.
