ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!





Scamsoil is a multi-level marketing (pyramid) company, the reason their products prices are so highly inflated. Most of their oil products aren't even API certified!

I use Amsoil in my bikes and vehicles. Is it snake oil? I don't know. But, my bikes shift noticeably smoother when I use it (bikes use engine oil to lube the transmission). That's good enough for me.

I do not use their oil filters, though. I have had multiple leaking problems using their filters.

Go to BITOG and read the data sheets and user experiences. Best bet.

Knowing they are a multi-level marketing company is enough for me, I don't have to look any further!

Not all MLMs are bad. Just means you have do your own research with a fair amount of scrutiny. And you just did that :-)

I'm going to disagree with you on that one. Your opinion is that not all MLMs are bad. My opinion is that they are. MLMs prey upon the ill informed and uneducated, telling them that they will make money by selling product. In fact, it's usually by selling the program to other unsuspecting ill informed and uneducated people. MLMs often make all their profit by selling starter kits that the buyer ends up holding onto because they can't sell the product. But they recruit someone who buys another starter kit, and they get paid for that sale and think they made money. The vast majority of people in MLMs never make money.

Many also falsely explain the structure. A reality is that if you recruit two people, and each of them recruit 2 people, in 28 levels the entire US population is recruited...

Again, you have your opinion, I have mine.

Also I was talking about the product, not the business structure or people

Amzoil is a good product. That said it's no better than many other synthetic oil's on the market for less money and easer to find. Also modern conventional oils are in many cases better suited for use in automotive engines than a synthetic and less money yet.
Bottom line Why go to time and expense when there are alternatives.
