Powerstroke Success Story Testimony
Mark Austin put AMSOIL 15W-40 Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Oil in his 2002 Ford 250 Super Duty Diesel pickup with a Turbo-Charged Power Stroke V-8 engine. “I call it the monster truck,”Austin said. And he uses that truck hard. He hauls a 32-foot travel trailer, his dirt bikes and his family of four with the truck. “That truck is a real hoss,” he said.
Because it’s a diesel engine, Austin said, it’s never going to run quietly, but when he put in the AMSOIL “it immediately got quieter,” he said.
The truck gained power, as well. “It has better acceleration off the line than it had before, and better acceleration across its full range. You can really feel it in the seat of your pants,” Austin said. “And the whistle of the turbo charger? This oil shut that turbo charger up. It’s almost inaudible.”
He has a personal theory that the turbo charger is spinning so much more freely with the AMSOIL motor oil that his acceleration has improved. However, Austin admits it is simply his experience with the AMSOIL motor oils, and not the result of any scientific study.
He has, however, measured the difference in gas mileage with the huge diesel engine. Before using AMSOIL motor oil, Austin got 11 miles per gallon doing in-town driving. After he installed AMSOIL, he got 13.8 mpg. “That’s like 25 percent,” he said. “That’s a huge improvement.
“I have to say I am thoroughly impressed,” Austin said. “Of course, on a dirt bike, the engine is exposed so you can hear everything, and the valve train went silent.” The bike also has more power, less vibration and revs more freely, he said. “Shifting also has improved,” Austin said. “With the Mobil 1, the shifter got mushy when the engine was very hot. With the AMSOIL, the shifter remained crisp.”
“I am a big fan,”Austin said. “I used to think you AMSOIL guys were just a bunch of zealots, and now I am one.”
