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 Blend much cheaper than full synthetic and last 7500 miles.
AMSOIL 10W/40 was in my van but was not recommended by the manufacture's
engine mechanic. 5W/30 is the requirement.
