Oil Change

Car Information:
Ford Fusion
Year: 2008
Engine Size: 3.0L
Trans: Automatic

Issue/Question: I just bought this car and was informed that I have synthetic oil in the car. I am not sure what brand is in the car, but was told to use Amsoil. If I decide to go with Amsoil, will it affect the engine when mixed with the oil in the engine now? Also, how long between oil changes? Why use Amsoil than some other synthetic oil. I hope to hear back from you soon. Thank you again.

Answer:
I recommend you go to amsoil.com and do some research on it for yourself, Amsoil was the first synthetic oil manufactured for internal combustion engines in the US. It uses twice the amount of POA bases in their oils compared to any other PAO oil. Note: Mobil is a PAO, Castrol, Valvoline, Pennsoil, and the rest are all hydrocracked petroleum oils with synthetic written on the bottles! They are not a real synthetic oil. Good luck.

Oil Change and Air Pressure

Car Information:
Ford Fusion Hybrid
Year: 2010
Engine Size: 4 cyl.
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
When can I put Amsoil in this car. I only have 1450 miles on it.
Also what do you think of putting nitrogin in the tires?
Thanks for you advice.

Answer:
3000 miles is ok for break in, then 0-W-30 Amsoil change it every 10,000 mile. Nitrogen is dehumidified air. Nitrogen is already 92% pure air. Studies have shown Nitrogen filled automotive tires has not shown to improve fuel economy unless you were to figure the improvement in the 100 thousands of a percent which wont work in a + or – 1% to many factors to prove a theory.
