Ralph bought his 2008 Ford F-350 in June of 2007 and has taken meticulous care of it ever since, always keeping an eye open for a better way of providing protection and performance. After much research, Ralph decided that Amsoil would provide those advantages.
Ralph consulted with the internet, Dan Goldman at CPS Auto and Marine and myself to learn all he could about the benefits of using Amsoil and decided on the full Amsoil fluid package, including the Amsoil Bypass Oil Filter kit. All lubricants were replaced with Amsoil products including the engine, transmission, differentials and coolant.
Ralph tows a 2014 Excel 40' 5th wheel with this truck. Weighing in at roughly 17,000 pounds, this trailer needs the power and stability that this truck offers. This truck needs the protection and performance that Amsoil offers. Amsoil's synthetic diesel oils provide superior shear strength while controlling oxidation resulting from high heat. It is oxidation that leads to sludge formation.
Starting with a superior motor oil, Ralph's truck gets even more protection from Amsoil with the bypass oil filter kit. Used in addition to the factory specified oil filter cartridge, which has also been upgraded to an Amsoil EA15K88 cartridge, the bypass oil filter kit uses a billet aluminum oil filter cap to divert a small portion of the pressurized oil flow and super cleans it, then returns the cleaned oil back to the engine through a billet aluminum oil fill cap. This setup removes 98% of particulate matter in the oil that is larger than 2 microns. The EA15K88 oil filter cartridge filter will remove 98% of particles down to 20 microns, which is quite a bit better than a typical paper media cartridge, but there is still quite a bit of "junk" left in the oil. You simply cannot filter particles smaller than that while maintaining full oil flow to the engine. That is where the Bypass Filter comes in. It is able to filter down to 2 microns by being a relatively low flow filter. Typically, the full volume of the trucks oil is filtered by the bypass filter every 30 to 40 minutes. And, speaking of oil volume, the oil volume is also increased by a little over 2 quarts due to the bypass filter. This increase in volume also has the benefit of better cooling and an increased ability of the oil to last longer.
Get in touch with Dan or me to find out more. Dan and the crew at CPS Auto and Marine can have your truck upgraded to Amsoil protection and performance in very little time. Located a stones throw from Cutty's Campground in Grimes, IA they are the perfect place for campers to take their trucks!! All Amsoil products are in stock and ready for you.
