WELCOME!!

YEP, Modil1 and Amsoil are both very good oils.

As for filters WIX is all I use for my ATV's, Jeeps, trucks or cars!

Ill raise hell here but walmart synth and walmart filters. I read some stuff on it in a motorcycle forum and walmart stuff is made to amzingly high standards (meet or surpass OEM). And at the price savings I can afford to change stuff twice as often. After over a year using it I've had no drop off in performance

I have read of a lot of guys who run the Wal mart stuff in there motorcycles and just change it more often. I'm sure that it is made to good standards and probably is available out there under a couple different names. I personally run Rotella 5w40 synthetic but I would not hesitate to run the synthetic Wal mart stuff if I could get it in a 0w or 5w-40. And as far as the filters are concerned I wouldn't hesitate to run a wal mart filter either especially if you change the filter as often as you change the oil. Amsoil is great stuff and I can buy it wholesale but I have 5 ATVs, 3 motorcycles, 2 lawn mowers, a go cart, wood splitter and a snow blower, V8 in my jet boat, diesel pick up, 2 SUVs and my wifes mini van. That is a lot of oil changes and I would go broke doing it with amsoil even at wholesale.

My reasoning also. I have 2 cars, 3 lawnmowers, the atv, a 4 stroke weedwacker, a chipper, 2 generators plus a few 2 stroke toys. Oil and filters starts to add up a bit. My last oil change I did splurge on rotella 5w40 as it was on sale.
