(The following is an excerpt from an article in the Orlando Florida Sentinel newspaper titled "For long Haul…spending a few dollars more now on the toughest, most durable products available for your car will save you money down the road.")

Next up is the motor oil. There are plenty of excellent motor oils, but one, AMSOIL 100 percent synthetic motor oil, just may be the best on the market.

It lasts longer, provides better lubrication and allows your engine to run cooler and with less friction, said Perry, who swears by the stuff. Perry said he's never seen an engine that has been run with AMSOIL fail because of sludge buildup or lubrication problems.

You'll spend about $50 for an oil change using AMSOIL, but you'll save money. Here's how: If you use conventional motor oil, you should change it along with the filter every 3,000 miles for a cost of about $24 per change.

Remember that automakers consider Florida a ``severe driving environment'' because of high heat and heavy traffic, so oil must be changed here every 3,000 miles or so. However, AMSOIL need not be changed until you drive 12,000 miles, even in high heat and heavy traffic, says Perry. Do the math: Four oil changes at $24 cost $96, compared with one $50 oil change with AMSOIL.

AMSOIL also makes synthetic automatic transmission fluid, which Perry says will extend the life of the transmission because it reduces heat buildup and provides better lubrication. You'll spend about $125 to flush out the old transmission fluid, change the filter and fill up with AMSOIL.

AMSOIL's engine oil and transmission fluid have been rigorously tested against other brands. They far exceed all automakers' requirements, according to AMSOIL. The test results can be seen at www.synthoils.com.

Earlier this year, the Sentinel asked readers to tell us how they kept their cars running for hundreds of thousands of miles. Many long-distance drivers wrote back and said they use AMSOIL. That got me interested in it, so I tried it. I use AMSOIL in my car, motorcycle and lawn mower. All three run smoother and cooler.
