I've used AMSOIL motor oil for about six years in my 2003 Elantra. Not sure if my gas millage is any better because I switched over when I got the car new. I get an average of 26.6 MPG. I have been thinking about using other products from AMSOIL, like the air cleaner, oil filter, and grease for the joints. AMSOIL has been around for a long time. Any thoughts?

"Synthetic" is not a performance specification. Superior motor oils can be manufactured by synthetic means but just because synthetic means was used is no assurance of a superior product.

nope. I used regular non-synthetic for over 25yrs and 235K miles on my toyota before I junked it. I highly doubt synthetic would have made any difference other than denting my wallet more.
