What they mean by Can't is same as what they mean when they say you can't eat just one Lay's Potato Chip, Or you can't pull out beyond a certain point, or You can't stop eating your wife;s fav. dish.

Once you realize the Better fuel mileage, cooler running, longer drain intervals, reduced engine wear, on and on and on...... How COULD you go back to Dino unless it was to flush it out or an emergency or some other economical reason such as your so broke you have to run Dino?

Have a riding buddy riding a 2002 Goldwing. He dropped the bike last year and had to replace all the Tupperware on the Bike along with the Valve covers on one side. When he removed the engine cover, the top side of the Engine was so clean and unworn it looked like a NEW Engine. He had over 100K miles and always used Honda Dino Oil. I will buy a new Goldwing soon and I will run exactly what the MFG recommends, no matter what Amsoil or the internet says. I believe all these AMsoil reports are Amsoil tests.

tommy,

Believe what you want, and do what you want. The Amsoil tests were independently run, and the results you saw were the results they got.

The point is simply this: All the oil tests are already agreed upon industry standardized tests.

Nearly all modern oils are very, very good... whether dino or synthetic. There's just never been anything like them before. This is the very reason, also, why we now have so many very specific types of oils... it's because there has now become a lot of specialization. Oil for bikes, oil for high mileage vehicles, oil for the most heavily emission controlled vehicles, oil for high-performance vehicles, for diesel engines, etc., etc.

If you buy a Goldwing, and run Honda dino, and go by the proper maintenance schedule, I don't doubt you'll be served very well... but, if you go with the highest rated syns, you will do even better.

I'm not aware of any oil testing that would suggest otherwise.

http://www.amsoil.com/StoreFront/images/FLSH_900.jpgAMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush (FLSH)

Helps restore fuel economy, increase operating efficiency and reduce emissions in gasoline and diesel engines, and automatic transmissions. Its potent, detergent-based formula cleans sludge and deposit build-up, promoting lower operating temperatures and reduced oil consumption. AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush is safe on parts and can be easily disposed of with waste oil.

Restores Vehicles to Like-New
New engines and transmissions run more efficiently, but over time they gather harmful deposits that cause power and performance loss. Stop-and-go driving, prolonged idling, short trips that do not allow the engine to reach full operating temperature, towing, the ingestion of airborne dirt, fuel dilution, water condensation and oxidized oil all can promote sludge build-up in motor oil and transmission fluid. As it settles, sludge clogs narrow oil passages, restricting oil flow to vital parts, especially the upper valve train area.

In transmissions, deposits can form on clutch plates, causing hesitation and erratic shifting. Ultimately clutch glazing can set in, reducing the life of the transmission. Deposits in engines and transmissions can accelerate wear, causing power loss and increased fuel consumption.

• Cleans engines and transmissions for improved efficiency, fuel economy and lower emissions
• Prolongs equipment life
• Detergent-based formula more environmentally friendly
• Compatible with seals and gaskets
• One-treatment results
• Easily disposed of with waste oil

Installing new oil or transmission fluid into a dirty vehicle may not be enough to remove deposits and increase efficiency. The detergents and dispersants in some lubricants may not be able to handle leftover sludge and deposits, and the new lubricant soon becomes unfit for service, accelerating the formation of even more harmful deposits.

AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush Benefits
Unlike many flush products, AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush features a multi-use formulation that dissolves and disperses sludge, varnish and deposits in both engines and automatic transmissions. Due to its detergent-based formulation, used AMSOIL FLSH can be easily disposed of with waste oil, making it more user-friendly. Its advanced formula of light base oil technology, powerful detergents and dispersants provides safe cleaning action. AMSOIL FLSH is compatible with both petroleum and synthetic oils, preparing poorly maintained equipment for installation of new oil. It represents the first step toward restoring neglected equipment to top-notch performance. AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush provides the following benefits in only one treatment:

Gasoline and Diesel Engines

• Helps loosen sticky valves and rings, minimizing blow-by and reducing emissions
• Helps quiet lifter noise
• Promotes lower operating temperatures through sludge removal
• Easy disposal

Automatic Transmissions

• Cleans deposits in oil cooler and ports
• Helps unclog fluid passages
• Cleans deposits and varnish from clutch plates, helping improve efficiency
• Promotes smoother operation and transmission life through reduced shift delay

Applications
AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush is recommended for diesel and gasoline engines, and automatic transmissions. It is not recommended for CVT transmissions or differentials.

Directions for Use
Though it works in one treatment, AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush is safe enough to be used at every oil change. If using a flushing machine, follow the manufacturer’s recommendation. Otherwise, use the following guidelines:

Engine: Add 16 oz. bottle of AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush to engine oil fill port. Idle the engine for 10-15 minutes, then immediately drain the oil. Ensure enough time for the system to completely
drain. Remove and replace the engine oil filter. Refill engine with new engine oil in the viscosity grade recommended by the manufacturer.

Transmission: Engage emergency brake. Add 16 oz. bottle of AMSOIL Engine and Transmission Flush to transmission oil fill port. Idle for 10-15 minutes; shift through drive and reverse. Do NOT place vehicle under heavy load. Drain entire transmission and torque converter of fluid. FILTER MUST BE CHANGED prior to refilling with new transmission fluid.

NOTE: It is not recommended to flush transmissions that do not have a removable pan or access to the transmission filter.

Clean oil says a lot about his air cleaner......... not so much about his oil. Synthetic oil can more efficiently handle dirt by far. One of the quickest ways to get your oil dirty is instal a K&N air filter. A paper filter does a better job, the real way to go is the new Nano-fiber technology.

My 13 year old Lawnmower is absolutely spotless inside, I only use scrap oil in it and I use it 12 hours a week in a dust bowl. I change it every time it shows dirty on the stick.
